Sophos Mobile 8 simplifies effective endpoint management and security for businesses of all sizes


SINGAPORE – Mar. 1, 2018 Sophos (LSE:SOPH), a global leader in network and endpoint security, today announced Sophos Mobile 8, the latest version of its Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) and mobile security solution. This new version lets system administrators manage and secure corporate-owned and personal Mac, Windows, and mobile endpoints in the Sophos Central management platform alongside Sophos Endpoint Protection and Intercept X to deliver simpler and more effective endpoint security for businesses of all sizes.

This unified approach to endpoint management enables consistent security policies and secure access to resources regardless of an employee’s choice of device. Sophos Mobile 8 adds a range of management features such as MacOS management and configuration, Windows 10 application management, and extended Android and iOS management functionality.

Sumit Bansal, Managing Director of ASEAN and Korea at Sophos said, "With mobile penetration growing at an unprecedented rate, they have also grown to be a target of choice for malware attacks. Personal and IoT devices provide increased mobility for users, which in turn, increased the number of access points especially when logged into corporate networks. For corporate security, such connectedness represents a significant threat as visibility into the management of devices and discovery of embedded malware becomes an issue. For IT admins, regardless of the size of the corporation, Sophos Mobile 8 provides visibility from a single access point, with the ability to manage and monitor across various platforms such as MacOS, Windows and mobile endpoints. By doing so, security management is streamlined, both for administrators and users, saving time, effort and increasing productivity across the business.”

Responding to the rise in mobile malware and ransomware, Sophos Mobile 8 includes the latest in mobile security and anti-ransomware technology to protect devices against the evolving threat landscape. In 2017, SophosLabs processed more than 10 million Android samples (up from 8.5 million in 2016) submitted by customers for analysis. Within that sample, nearly 3.5 million were deemed potentially suspicious or malicious apps, 77 per cent of which were malware.  More recently, SophosLabs discovered attackers are increasingly using Google Play to hide malicious apps like cryptocurrency mining or unwanted advertising that can cause a variety of problems for Android users.

Sumit added, “To protect user productivity whilst providing a secure environment, our Unified Management solution that provides market-leading levels of detection and protection, delivers endpoint protection based on the ability of deep learning technology. Ultimately, our vision is to embed predictive security layers to all endpoints including mobile devices, providing comprehensive security tools to maintain a safe and productive working environment.”

Sophos Mobile 8 is available now both in the cloud-based Sophos Central platform and for installation on the customer’s own premises.
