Sophos – winner of Cybersecurity Company of the Year
Cyber Defense Magazine announced Sophos as the Cybersecurity Company of the Year in the publication’s 10th annual Global InfoSec Awards. The winners were announced at the RSA Conference 2022 held in San Francisco in early June. RSA Conference is reputed to be the world’s leading provider of information security conferences and expositions.
“Cyber criminals are constantly changing their tactics, techniques and procedures to evade detection, and Sophos forensic evidence shows a 36% increase in attacker dwell time in 2021. The fact that attackers are lingering in victim environments for weeks on end – and far longer for smaller organisations – should serve as a wakeup call to businesses worldwide,” says Ross Anderson, Sophos Product Development Manager at Duxbury Networking. “Sophos is helping organisations detect intruders and neutralise threats throughout the attack chain before they cause damage, and we’re honoured to be associated with Sophos.”
Sophos’ comprehensive and integrated portfolio of solutions and managed services protects against ransomware and other advanced cyberthreats. Pillar offerings – including Sophos Intercept X, Sophos XDR, Sophos Firewall, Sophos ZTNA, and Sophos Cloud Security – are easily managed in the cloud-native Sophos Central platform. Customers can also choose to have them managed by Sophos MTR, a threat hunting, detection, investigation, and response service that provides a dedicated 24/7 security team to rapidly identify and neutralise sophisticated and complex threats.
Offerings are part of the Sophos Adaptive Cybersecurity Ecosystem, where they share real-time threat intelligence for faster and more contextual and synchronised detection, protection and response. Working together, the solutions can better identify and quickly respond to active threats.
