Senior Information Systems Security Specialist

“Sophos provides the visibility you need to dig into issues (security incidents and production) through a simplistic interface and availability through logging. The same logs vendor support staff are available at your own fingerprints, empowering you and your own support staff to be more self-reliant, but if you need a helping hand, they're available at a moment's notice. Traditionally, practitioners partner with an anti-virus solution to protect them from what they know, we partnered with Sophos to leverage Sophos Intercept X to protect us from what we don't know and it does a great job to where I feel I can sleep at night without having to watch a SIEM console.”

A Partnership You Can Trust arrow-link

Support Analyst

“Previously we were using another antivirus solution, but it was not contracted thinking about the company's growth, nor with the security demand established by the board based on local legislation. We had to choose another solution that would meet our requirements. We already had a firewall solution from Sophos, and that made it easy for us to also acquire intercept X.”
