The security firm will enable The Funding Corporation to meet the compliance requirements imposed on the finance sector
UK-based non-prime motor finance provider, The Funding Corporation has chosen IT security and data protection firm Sophos to ensure endpoint and email protection.
Sophos said Sophos application will offer protection to the corporation and its umbrella companies enabling it to meet the compliance requirements imposed on the finance sector.
The non-prime motor finance provider has deployed Sophos’ Endpoint Protection and Data Protection, as well as the Sophos web and mail appliances to ensure that its systems remain not just up-to-date, but also able to cope with new and changing needs.
Endpoint Protection automatically identifies and cleans new malware threats, scans for virus infections and controls the use of software applications, devices, data and web access. It also includes patch assessment and disk encryption.
Sophos UK&I sales director Ian Pugh said the company’s technology’s ability to scan and block email for malicious and inappropriate content has reduced the load on The Funding Corporation’s exchange servers.
"We’re delighted to be working with The Funding Corporation to help them maintain the integrity of their IT protection systems and to help future-proof these against changing requirements," Pugh said.
