Sophos UTM 9
Next is the all important category of security. In today's threat-filled world, IT administrators want a unified threat management system that's bulletproof, one that locks out threats first and asks questions later. This year's winner in the Security category is one such solution. It's the industry's first UTM specifically designed to fully integrate gateway and endpoint security in a single hardware or virtual appliance, providing complete protection managed from single console regardless of location and simplifying the challenges of BYOD. This year's winner for security is Sophos and its UTM 9 appliance. Accepting for Sophos was Colin Martin, senior director of sales in the Sophos Networking Security Group.
