Synchronized security protection is a game changer: Sunil Sharma, Sophos

Sunil Sharma, VP-Sales, India and SAARC at Sophos Technologies highlights how synchronized security platform is enabling businesses to address the security challenges they face today.

The rapid growth of advanced threats and coordinated breaches is outpacing IT leaders’ ability to protect their businesses.

According to a recent Sophos Labs’ report, 70 percent of Indian organizations have reported a compromise in data security in the last 12 months. The report also states that 75 percent of malware were unique to organizations and have never been encountered before.

For a long time, businesses have treated their networks and endpoints as two different entities, with completely different security strategies. But as the world is getting dynamic with accelerating security threats, Sunil Sharma, VP-Sales, India and SAARC at Sophos Technologies believes it to be a futile approach.

IT organizations of any size can benefit from the advanced threat protection capabilities of Heartbeat without adding layers of complex management tools, analysis tools, or expense.

In order to get rid of those security silos, Sophos have introduced a synchronized security—Heartbeat. Sharma describes Sophos Security Heartbeat as a revolutionary technology, which makes both network and endpoint smarter.

Further explaining, Sharma said, Security Heartbeat shares real-time intelligence between endpoints and networks. It links next-gen firewalls and UTMs with next-gen endpoint security, enabling faster detection of threats, automatic isolation of infected devices, and immediate response to threats.

IT organizations of any size can benefit from the advanced threat protection capabilities of Heartbeat without adding layers of complex management tools, analysis tools, or expense, added Sharma.

The threats faced by organizations are horrifying, and Sharma believes that mitigating those will require resources, expertise, and manpower. Synchronized security completely changes this dynamic, provides better protection, and offers powerful communications.
