Hooters protects its endpoints with Sophos
US restaurant chain selects endpoint security solution from Oxfordshire-based IT security firm.
The chain has selected the IT security company's Endpoint Security and Control protect to protect its assets against viruses, Trojans, worms, spyware, adware, potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) and hackers. The chain has 440 outlets in 22 countries.
Hooters chose the solution from Sophos as it liked the size, speed and frequency of its updates. The product also operates from a single console that doesn't interrupt communications with clients. The ability to function without impacting precious system resources was critical to the chain deciding to go for the solution.
Ryan Pierce, network administrator at Hooters said the solution "outperformed the others in multiple categories throughout the evaluation."
"There were other key advantages that factored into the decision," said Pierce. "Sophos's Competitor Removal Tool allowed us to easily remove our former solution without rebooting as part of the deployment of Sophos Endpoint Security & Control. Since Sophos upgrades are automatic, my team has saved countless hours, as we no longer have to make manual updates."
Dick Faulkner, vice president of North American sales at Abingdon-based firm said that his company was committed to providing flexible solutions that meet the needs of today's businesses.
