Web Security and Control


Securing the gateway
You can stop threats before they infiltrate your network. The WS1000 Web Security Appliance blocks access to malicious websites and scans inbound content quickly and thoroughly to keep new spyware and other malware out.

Performance and ease of use

The WS1000 eliminates dangerous and unproductive web browsing with our innovative bi-dimensional URL classification system. With the easy-to-use web-based management console delivering unrivaled insight and control on a single page you are able to see what's really happening on your network.

The security you need, the performance you require

Fast, full-spectrum protection against spyware, viruses, phishing, malware and unwanted content allowing safe and productive web browsing. Our award-winning detection engine delivers a safe and seamless user experience. We are the first vendor to scan and analyze billions of webpages, and uncover and block over 25,000 new malicious sites every day.

Detect zero-day threats before they execute

Sophos Behavioral Genotype® Protection is a Host Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) that monitors code on a computer. Unlike others which only monitor running code, Sophos Behavioral Genotype Protection identifies and blocks malicious programs before execution.

Easy reporting and control

Reporting on suspect machines, security and content filtering performance by user means greater insight and control over web traffic and its impact on your organization. The easy to use web-based management console delivers unrivaled insight and control, presenting all vital system statistics on a single page. Integrating with Active Directory and Exchange, the WS1000 has quick and easy access control and policy deployment.

Proactive heartbeat monitoring

We listen for connection failures to ensure every WS1000 continuously receives protection updates, and we'll contact you to initiate resolution of any problems. You can get extra help from our highly trained technical staff with on-demand remote assistance via a secure connection.
