How Sophos Synchronized Security helps to comply with the GDPR
The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) has a global scope, applicable whether you’re the owner of a grocery store in the country’s interior, keeping a list of your customers’ addresses to deliver products to their homes, or a multinational with customers from around the world. The new Data Protection Regulation should be viewed more as an opportunity, than as a threat or a complication, since it’s the perfect opportunity to sort out a company’s or organization’s Information Technology infrastructure.
It’s about taking absolute control of the personal data you collect, store, and process, implementing absolute transparency in all processes and strengthening security conditions. Circumstances that benefit any organization, which can even become a factor of advantage for small and medium companies.
It is with this spirit, in a global and long term approach, that the Sophos Synchronized Security functions as a good investment to guarantee full compliance with the GDPR. We are talking about an intuitive platform, consisting of state-of-the-art solutions that work in tandem, crossing synergies, to block advanced attacks. In this way, it is possible to implement a coordinated and more efficient strategy, to address the increasingly complex malware threats, specifically, ransomware.
Sophos presents cutting edge solutions, such as Sophos Intercept X, which uses deep learning technology to detect threats, and the Sophos SafeGuard, considered the most complete data protection solution on the market, or also, the Sophos Encryption, the Sophos XG Firewall, and the Sophos Mobile. Adding these strengths in Synchronized Security, the British company combines endpoint protection with network protection to detect and stop threats more quickly and more effectively, which helps to comply with the GDPR’s main demands.
Sophos Synchronized Security functions through a unified management, in a single interface, which connects several interconnected solutions, sharing information to stop the main causes of data loss. This combined effort allows you to preserve the security of applications and shared data, even in scenarios of loss or theft, since the data is automatically encrypted. Thanks to Synchronized Security, you can also block malware threats, namely of ransomware, at the network’s perimeter, before they reach the devices. This synchronized and real time perimeter security, enables you to automatically identify and isolate compromised systems.
