Even better network security with macmon NAC and Sophos

09/08/2020 | Press Releases

Berlin, September 08.2020: Users of the macmon NAC solution benefit from the software’s high security, easy hand-ling and operation, and the capability to integrate with other leading security products. The development department at macmon secure GmbH has now created an integration that connects to Sophos Central. The rapid proliferation of complex, coordinated threats is increasingly overburdening the defense of many companies. Because isolated solutions are no longer adequate for current threat scenarios, companies require seamless interactions between best-of-breed solutions.

Sophos protects against today’s cyber threats
For more than 30 years, UK-based Sophos has specialized in the development of IT security solutions for enterprises. Sophos protects over 400,000 organizations in more than 150 countries against the latest cyber threats. Sophos’s cloud-native and AI-optimized solutions are able to adapt to changes in the threat landscape at any time. This ensures that endpoints and networks are protected against the tactics and techniques of cyber criminals—even those that are not yet known. Sophos Intercept X is able to quickly detect threats and indicate the threat status via Sophos Central.

Christian Bücker, Managing Director of macmon secure GmbH, reports:
“We have supported Sophos’s on premises management solution for many years. Now, with our Sophos Central integration, we can offer companies even greater value by combining detection and automatic isolation of infected endpoints. This automatic response to threats increases security while saving time and money. We also facilitate the Sophos cloud strategy.”

Sophos detects, macmon NAC isolates
In Sophos Central, macmon NAC regularly retrieves the system statuses of all endpoints in the network and shows them in the macmon graphical user interface for a convenient overview. If the system status of an endpoint is non-compliant, macmon can temporarily isolate this endpoint from the network segment, if desired. This prevents malware from spreading across the network and infecting other resources in the network. The combination of Sophos Central and macmon NAC provides a powerful mix of threat detection and endpoint isolation with low administrative costs.

Sven Janssen, Channel Sales Director at Sophos: “In times of increasingly complex cyber attacks, it is essential to have complement IT security solutions available that communicate with each other. This is exactly what Sophos Synchronized Security offers for companies of all sizes and we are delighted that macmon is committed to implementing and integrating our next-generation IT security philosophy."
