Ipswich Hospital operates with Sophos
Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust has chosen Sophos products to protect its IT systems against viruses, spyware, and spam.
Providing healthcare services to nearly 500,000 people, Ipswich Hospital selected Sophos Enterprise Security and Control to defend 3,500 staff accounts.
Previously, Ipswich Hospital was running products from Bluecoat, Clearswift, and SurfControl, as well as Sophos's desktop and server offering. Upon renewal, the hospital reviewed its network security infrastructure, and opted to fulfil all its security requirements with the Didcot-headquartered security firm.
The NHS Trust has implemented the ES4000 email and WS1000 Web appliances, as well as upgrading its protection for desktops, laptops, file servers and mobile devices with Sophos's Endpoint Security and Control.
"From an efficiency point of view, it was vital that we deployed a simple, easy-to-use but comprehensive solution," said Karl Kroger, senior technical support specialist at Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust. "Having had a good experience with Sophos endpoint protection software, the common interface with the additional gateway products means that all our security is now controlled in a much more intelligible way."
