Sophos is being recoginized as a finalist for the best UTM Solution – SC Awards
Best UTM Security Solution
Given the continuous convergence of the market, we’ve decided to retire some categories this year and integrate a number of individual categories from previous years into this unified threat management (UTM) category. The former categories – Best Enterprise Firewall, Best Intrusion Detection System/Intrusion Prevention System Product, Best IPsec/SSL VPN, Best Anti-Malware Gateway and Best Web Content Management – are now integrated here. As formerly, contenders in the UTM security category should take an “in-depth” defense approach. Entrants should have an integrated, multifunction endpoint/UTM offering – not a single-function product. These products typically aggregate a wide variety of threat data into a single unified tool. Many organizations define those threat categories as anti-malware, content management, IDS/IPS and spam filtering, along with firewall/VPN. Entrants should meet this minimum functionality and can include anti-malware gateway, anti-spam gateway and anti-phishing gateway, as well as provide web content filtering for laptops, desktops and, optionally, servers that blocks or filters objectionable websites and content.
