Sophos has announced the availability of new Sophos SG Series appliances. The new solutions are powered by 4th generation Intel Core processors and they’re designed to boost network security performance.
“The new Sophos SG Series appliances are the fastest UTM and Next-Gen Firewall devices we’ve ever produced,” said Guenter Junk, senior and general manager of Network Security Group at Sophos.
“They run our latest operating system, version 9.2, and are optimized to get the most out of latest performance innovations from Intel to ensure our customers and partners get an unrivalled performance and protection combination,” Junk added.
The SG Series appliances are ideal for both and large enterprises. The devices deliver 10 Gbit/second firewall throughput and they use Intel technologies for AES-NI acceleration, high-speed LAN interfaces and high volume SSDs.
The operating system that runs on the latest series is Sophos UTM 9.2. The OS includes new advanced threat protection, and SPX Email Encryption functionality. UTM 9.2 can be deployed on Intel-compatible servers and in the cloud via AWS.
“By using Intel(R) Architecture, Sophos has been able to use the performance gains we’ve been able to deliver with the 4th Generation Intel(R) Core(TM) processors which delivers improved software processing architecture,” noted Bob Ghaffari, director of Intel’s communications and storage infrastructure division.
