The Sophos Security Gateway?

Hardware

I'm late to the party on this, but was going through my spam folder this afternoon and saw an email report on this announcement:

Several months ago Sophos approached Astaro with the idea to bring the two companies together [..] we have now signed a definitive agreement to be acquired by Sophos.

I used a beige box with ASG on it for years before switching to a VMware appliance. I wish them the best, though the history of IT mergers, buyouts and takeovers aren't on their side.
