One of the world's most recognized brands, GE has signed an agreement to begin deploying Sophos across the globe.
Under the terms of the agreement, Sophos will be deployed on up to 350,000 endpoints including laptops, desktops and servers covering every division of the company.
Seeking to improve manageability and reduce costs which arise from managing multiple solutions, GE will introduce Network Access Control (NAC) as well as anti-virus and client firewall protection which forms part of the Sophos Security and Control solution.
Sophos CEO, Steve Munford, said companies want a single integrated agent that handles all aspects of endpoint security on each PC.
"Other vendors offer security suites that are little more than a bunch of separate applications bundled together, all vying for resources on the user's computer," he said.
"Enterprises tell us that the tide has turned, and the place for NAC and integrated security is at the endpoint."
