Sophos expands security offerings through AWS Marketplace

The company is introducing a new secure server option for customers on Amazon Web Services with its new Sophos Secure OS.

Sophos recently announced the expansion of their product portfolio on AWS Marketplace with the addition of a new secure server option for customers on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

The new Sophos Secure OS will combine CentOS with comprehensive, preinstalled anti-malware protection in a single Amazon Machine Instance (AMI). The secure server option provides a time-saving and cost-effective alternative to IT professionals building their own infrastructure to manage security in a cloud-based server environment.

In addition to Sophos Secure OS, the computer security company is also adding a new AWS Test Drive for their endpoint security solution featuring Sophos Enterprise Console. AWS Test Drives allow customers to evaluate products using a private IT sandbox environment containing preconfigured server-based solutions.

"In the cloud, security is a shared responsibility and the availability of Sophos Secure OS on AWS Marketplace provides customers with another great option to help them add additional layers of security to their enterprise applications on AWS," said Terry Hanold, Vice President, AWS Platform and Marketplace, Amazon Web Services, Inc.
