General Electric rolls out Sophos security

Antony Savvas

General Electric (GE) has signed an agreement to install Sophos security software on 350,000 laptops, desktops and servers throughout the world and within every division of the company.

 

Sophos will provide centrally-managed Network Access Control (NAC), anti-virus and firewall protection to GE.

 

Other Sophos users include Heinz and Daimler Chrysler.

 

This March, food manufacturer Heinz became one of the first companies to deploy dedicated security hardware from Sophos designed to protect thin client desktop terminals with web browsers.

 

It has installed the WS1000 gateway appliance from Sophos at its Portsmouth datacentre to provide 5,000 staff working on its European wide area network with secure internet access.
