Computer security firm Sophos has introduced its new unified threat management appliance and software package, UTM 100 for small businesses.
The new UTM appliance will enable small businesses to access the enterprise-grade security at a reduced cost.
Sophos UTM 100 appliance comes with BasicGuard to offer enhanced small business security applications that offer network, email, web and wireless protection together, the company said.
BasicGuard includes Web application control features, network firewall & IPS, remote access and VPN, wireless protection, web antivirus, URL filter, email antivirus and anti-spam capabilities.
The new release is claimed to enable its customers to upgrade their license to include advanced security features and accommodate more employees.
Sophos Product Management vice president Chris Kraft said: "We believe they shouldn't have to compromise between security and budgets, which is why we developed the UTM 100 -- enterprise features and the ability to upgrade, at an attractive price point."
