Sophos Security Heartbeat Links Threat Management to Modern Firewalls

By Frank Ohlhorst  |  Posted 2016-05-05

Sophos has combined the best features of its endpoint security applications with the firewall technology of its Astaro and Cyberoam subsidiaries to create a new class of advanced firewalls. The combined products are designed to streamline threat management while protecting both endpoints and networks from zero-day attacks, advanced persistent threats, intrusions and the many types of malware haunting the Web today. Sophos' new take on Next Generation Firewalls (NGFWs) brings security intelligence to both endpoints and servers by unifying threat detection across all devices attached to the network. Sophos Security Heartbeat is fully integrated into the company's XG series of next-generation firewalls and unified threat management (UTM) systems. Sophos says Security Heartbeat directly links next-generation firewalls and UTMs with the latest endpoint security tools to share threat intelligence that enables faster threat detection, automatic isolation of infected devices, and more immediate and targeted response and resolution. With Security Heartbeat, organizations of any size can bolster their defenses against increasingly coordinated cyber-attacks and reduce the time and resources required to investigate and address security incidents.
