Sophos RED-deployment-helper

Sophos makes it easy to turn any location into a secure location.

Sophos RED (Remote Ethernet Device) instantly connects a branch office to your LAN. And client VPN provides remote access for desktops, laptops, and mobile devices.

Sophos RED is the first security gateway that requires no local set up or technical skills at the remote site. Configuration and deployment is completely automated (See screen shot). Enter a name and the unique RED device ID into your Sophos UTM and a configuration file is automatically created.

All your branch office user needs to do is connect Sophos RED to the Internet router and plug in the power. It automatically connects to your central Sophos UTM and establishes a secure Ethernet tunnel.

Once Sophos RED is in place, all branch office traffic is forwarded to the Sophos UTM appliance. Giving you complete security and visibility.

Intrusion Prevention protects your network against new and existing threats and you can extend protection to include web, email, endpoint web servers and even secure Wi-Fi.

Built-in reporting gives you the insight you need to fix problems fast.

Users can simply install individual VPN packages with a click of the mouse using the Sophos UTM UserPortal. That means your help desk doesn’t have to get involved.

For Clientless VPN for BYOD, Sophos’ HTML5 VPN Portal is the only solution of its kind with no need for ActiveX, Java or a client to install. Because it’s pure HTML5 technology, it works on all platforms, from Windows and Macs to iOS and Android.

Users can create fast and easy VPN tunnels to secure data traffic back to the corporate network from all their devices, including iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch devices. Automatic login stores resource credentials on the device. There’s no need to give it out to third-party users.

All Sophos VPN clients support state-of the-art algorithms like AES256 and SHA-512, and they ensure compatibility and data privacy across unsecured networks.

Secure authentication is delivered by X.509 certificates in a PKI (public key infrastructure).

With Sophos, you’ll have complete control over all the security features you need all in one place, with none of the complexity and the admin interface is intuitive and easy to use.

Built-in reporting means you’ll know exactly what’s happening with your users. Fix problems fast and shape your policies, keeping your users secure while boosting network performance. And get detailed reports as standard, stored locally with no separate tools required.

At-a-glance flow graphs show usage trends with predefined and customisable reports, providing key web activity. Report anonymisation hides user names, requiring the four-eyes-principle to unhide them.
