Sophos RED (Remote Ethernet Device) is the easiest and most affordable way to secure your branch offices. You can centrally configure it via an Sophos UTM located at your headquarter which automatically distributes the configuration to the Astaro/Sophos RED appliance. By forwarding all traffic to the central Sophos UTM, the RED provides complete UTM security even for your smallest remote or home office. In contrast to standard security appliances the RED not only provides stronger security but also slashes the total cost of ownership by 80% as there’s no need for technical skill or ongoing maintenance at the remote site.
Complete UTM Security
With the RED you don’t have to make any compromise with regards to your remote office security. Even the smallest remote or home offices are fully protected by the Network, Web, and Mail Security subscriptions of the Sophos UTM at your Central Office.
Built-in Central Management
Sophos UTM acts as the RED controller, centrally managing all the RED appliances through a cloud-based provisioning service. The complete configuration, logging and troubleshooting is performed at your central office. There is no need for the individual management of single devices.
Virtual Ethernet Cable
The RED acts like a remote network port connected through a virtual Ethernet cable to your Sophos UTM . All data transferred is protected by strong encryption.
The RED is the first comprehensive security gateway which does not require local setup or technical skills at the remote site. The configuration is completed at the central office and is automatically distributed to all Astaro RED appliances. It even allows mass roll-outs of up to 100 appliances per day.
