SOPHOS ANTI-MALWARE FOR CISCO

A fully integrated layer of malware protection on Cisco Email and Web Security Appliances

To address more efficiently the growing concern of malware threats in corporate networks, Cisco and Sophos have partnered to offer the most comprehensive security gateway solutions.  The combination of proprietary Cisco technology and malware filtering from Sophos, both available on the Cisco Email and Web Security appliances, provides maximum virus security, without compromising scalability.

VOLUME OF MALWARE THREATENS SECURITY

The scale and complexity of modern virus at­tacks have highlighted the importance of robust and secure web and messaging platforms to protect your network perimeter.

SophosLabs detects and analyzes more than 250,000 malware samples each day, and it is becoming increasingly difficult for traditional signature-based anti-malware products to keep up with this immense volume. Additionally, though proactive technologies are capable of detecting many of these threats, being overly aggressive in threat detection in order to protect the network can drain IT resources.

 

SOLVING THE PROBLEM

With the highest performance virus detection and scanning technologies from the industry, anti-virus technologies from Cisco and Sophos provide a fully integrated layer of virus protection on the Cisco Email and Web security appliances.
