MSP Connect growth accelerates, says Sophos

Cyber security firm Sophos says there has been significant worldwide growth of MSP Connect, its program for MSPs to expand market opportunities and revenue streams with its portfolio of solutions and services.

According to Sophos, the growth is fuelled by increasing demand for its offerings protecting against "sophisticated and evolving cyber security threats".

Sophos says MSP Connect now supports more than 12,500 global and regional MSPs worldwide, representing a 30% increase since the start of its fiscal year in April 2020, with MSP billings also increased 56% during that time.

“Channel partners have a tremendous opportunity to secure organisations from complex ransomware, like the recent Maze, WastedLocker and Dharma attacks, and other threats – including this year’s surge in attack campaigns preying on mounting Coronavirus fears,” said Scott Barlow, vice president of global MSP at Sophos.

“MSPs are also increasingly finding themselves under attack through remote monitoring and management (RMM) and professional service automation (PSA) tools, misconfigured firewalls and endpoints, and targeted phishing scams. Sophos reduces these risks, and Sophos’ recent growth momentum is a direct reflection of its proven track record in securing partner and customer environments.”

“Partner demand for Sophos’ entire product and services portfolio – including Sophos Intercept X, Sophos XG Firewall, Sophos Cloud Optix, and Sophos Managed Threat Response (MTR) – continues to increase,”Sophos said in a statement.

“Sophos MTR, which launched, in October 2019 as a fully-managed threat hunting, detection and response service that fuses machine learning with human analysis for an evolved approach to proactive security protection, now supports more than 1,000 customers.

“As one of the industry’s most widely used managed detection and response (MDR) services with more than 1000 customers, Sophos MTR stands apart with its ability to proactively take action on an organisation’s behalf to mitigate threats in real time.”

“We made the decision at the start of the pandemic to deploy Sophos’ entire security stack of solutions — starting with Sophos MTR — across all of our clients to ensure they’re protected in the office and at home,” said Chris Wanamaker, chief executive at GeeksHD.

“Sophos’ innovative security solutions are the industry’s best, bar none. They’re cornerstone to our business success, and most importantly, critical in protecting organisations from advanced threats.”

“The only way to protect against unscrupulous cyber criminals is to stay one step ahead of them, and Sophos arms us with the threat intelligence and synchronised next-generation solutions to do exactly that,” said Bob Pankratz, chief executive at Technosis.

“We’re always looking for new ways to ensure our customers’ security as they migrate to cloud environments and adopt other technologies. We’ve relied on Sophos for many years because of its resolute pursuit of a complete and synchronised ecosystem, and as a result, we’re working smarter – not harder. Sophos MSP Connect saves us resources, and empowers our team and our clients to quickly adapt their defenses to meet ever-changing needs.

“In turn, we’re able to reinvest those resource savings into the services and technologies our clients need.”

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
