Sophos and Astaro
At Sophos, our mission is to provide the best threat and data protection solutions. That’s why Sophos is acquiring Astaro, a proven innovator in network security with a global footprint. The company offers a full range of firewall, IPS and VPN solutions for network security, and integrates multiple, diverse security functions—from wireless to application control—into comprehensive and easy-to-use platforms.
Today, businesses face unprecedented challenges in protecting their users and IT infrastructure from escalating security threats—especially those brought by roaming users, non-company owned devices and greater distributed locations. These challenges present a security gap not well addressed by many solutions today. In combination with the strong Astaro network security product offering, Sophos will now be able to deliver more complete and coordinated security to any user, any device, anywhere.
The combination of Sophos and Astaro will enable you with solutions and services that provide differentiated and complete, layered threat and data protection to meet existing and emerging customer needs. Upon registering in the Astaro partner program, you will have access to the complete network security portfolio; including unique capabilities for protecting branch offices, log management and a leading network security gateway available in any delivery model; software, virtual, hardware and as a cloud service. Over time we will be combining the Astaro and Sophos partner programs into one.
Roadmap features include Astaro gateways powered by Sophos threat and data protection technologies, coordinated web and application control between Sophos endpoint and Astaro network security, and other industry-first protection and coordination between endpoint and network.
