Jordan's Furniture Selects Sophos

Jordan's Furniture selected Sophos Endpoint Security and Control

BOSTON, Mass. -- Sophos, a world leader in IT security and control, today announced that Jordan’s Furniture, Inc., one of New England’s most recognized furniture retailers, has selected Sophos Endpoint Security and Control to protect its desktops against viruses, Trojans, worms, spyware, adware, potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) and hackers. For the past two years, Jordan’s Furniture has trusted Sophos PureMessage to defend its email gateway from spam. Recently, the retailer also added virus protection to its security suite. Implementing Sophos at both the email gateway and endpoint will provide tighter integrated security, while lowering total cost of ownership.

Earning the greatest return on investment, Sophos Endpoint Security and Control was selected for its superior detection technology, high performance and strong feature set, including: desktop firewall, application control and HIPS, frequent updates and broad operating system support. Jordan’s Furniture purchased Sophos solutions through Sophos Platinum Channel Partner, Softchoice. For the next three years, more than 1400 employees will be safeguarded with Sophos’s comprehensive solution.

“Managing different vendor security solutions caused higher administrative overhead, and we wanted to enhance our level of desktop protection,” said Peter Clark, director of information systems at Jordan’s Furniture. ”Sophos's Enterprise Console provides ease-of-use and uncomplicated deployment with full Active Directory integration. In the end, Sophos consistently outperformed the others in many key areas and provided better security with its expedited updates, and better zero-day protection and application control functionality.”
