Sophos has revealed a major refresh of its network Security Gateway hardware with the availability of the new Sophos SG Series appliances in Australia and New Zealand.

These hardware appliances – based on the 4th generation Intel Core processors – now deliver up to four times the speed of the previous UTM generation appliances.

“The new Sophos SG Series appliances are the fastest UTM and Next-Gen Firewall devices we’ve ever produced,” says Guenter Junk, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Network Security Group, Sophos.

“They run our latest operating system, version 9.2, and are optimised to get the most out of latest performance innovations from Intel to ensure our customers and partners get an unrivalled performance and protection combination.”

The new SG Series includes models designed to cater for small offices to large, distributed enterprises, available in the mid-range 200, 300 and 400 models.

The SG Series is the 6th generation of Sophos security gateways built on an Intel architecture, utilising Intel technologies including LAN interfaces, high volume Solid State Drives and AES-NI acceleration.

“By using Intel Architecture, Sophos has been able to use the performance gains we’ve been able to deliver with the 4th Generation Intel Core processors which delivers improved software processing architecture,” adds Bob Ghaffari, Director, Communications and Storage Infrastructure Division, Intel.

“Sophos has been able to see dramatic performance improvements by unlocking Intel’s core processor capabilities to make fast, intelligent decisions.”
