Sophos is touring several cities in North America to demonstrate Sophos Synchronized Security. This “next generation protection” links network and endpoint security to improve protection.
According to the schedule, the cities on the tour include:
Dec 01: Chicago
Dec 01: Burlington
Dec 02: Salt Lake City
Dec 03: Seattle
Dec 08: Charlotte
Dec 09: Orlando
Dec 10: Detroit
Dec 10: Vancouver
The Sophos Synchronized Security sounds like the final product name for what was previously announced as Project Galileo. A Sophos post made at the beginning of 2015 gives the best description of the Project Galileo vision with Next-Gen Enduser Protection. They set forth 3 principles:
- Security must be comprehensive.
- Security can be made simple.
- Security is more effective as a system.
The system part is key and has Sophos connecting all of their products to make a mesh against malicious software and traffic. The Sophos UTM firewall, Malicious Traffic Detection, SafeGuard Encryption, Sophos Mobile Encryption, and Sophos Cloud Enduser Protection/Sophos Endpoint Protection work together to see and stop malware at the edge and the endpoint. Malware detected by one endpoint can notify the firewall, which can prevent other endpoints from being infected. The command-and-control traffic can also be detected and stopped.
