End-to-End Security for Distributed and Online Retail

Sophos offers the ultimate security package for modern retail that not only ensures secure POS and connectivity, but also extends security to your staff, business partners, and distribution networks.

Secure point-of-sale (PoS) network and back-end databases

Sophos’ next-generation ransomware prevention, endpoint, server, and network security for retail offers comprehensive end-to-end protection of your POS endpoints, database servers, and the network – stopping the latest advanced threats. Our unique Sophos Security Heartbeat™ shares telemetry and health status to enable coordinated isolation, detection, and malware remediation across servers, endpoints, and firewalls, stopping attacks before they can do damage.

Security for distributed and diverse retail environments

Sophos SD-RED lets you extend your secure network to other locations easily, including branch offices, stores, and other third-party partners – with no local setup or technical skills required. Apply the same protection to all locations or customize it to meet your diverse regional needs.

Now connect and collaborate for less with Sophos SD-WAN. Sophos XG Firewalls integrate SD-WAN, enabling you to connect multiple franchise stores for less by replacing expensive MPLS connections with lower-cost services such as cable, DSL, and 3G/4G/LTE. Securely exchange customer financial and personal data through in-store and online transactions, connect point of sale (POS) machines, kiosks, digital signage, and IoT devices, and keep up with the latest POS technologies.
