BOSTON - March 15, 2010 - IT security and data protection firm Sophos today announced that Chris Doggett, Vice President of Global Channels will participate in an Everything Channel panel discussion titled, "Protecting Data-in-Motion and How VARS Can Sell Security Solutions" on Thursday, March 18, 2010 from 2:30pm-3:15pm ET. The panel includes executives from RSA, Novell, Cyberoam and CPU and will be moderated by Everything Channel's VP/Editorial Director Kelley Damore.

The way in which organizations conduct business has dramatically changed. Keeping information safe is a constant challenge as threats have grown in sophistication and volume. Individuals and enterprises demand secure, expeditious internet and network access, and safeguarding personally identifiable information from loss or theft is a paramount concern. With increasingly tighter industry and government regulations, the way in which businesses operate is now, more than ever, scrutinized by many. And if a business is not compliant, the negative impact such as loss of customer trust, fines, legal action, etc. can forever alter a company's reputation and profitability.

With more than two decades of security and data protection expertise bolstered by a 100 percent channel distribution model, Sophos provides customers with complete security and data protection - all in a way that lets them manage it simply and quickly. In addition to firewalls, anti-virus and anti-spam, organizations need security across a number of fronts that cover the entire infrastructure. A comprehensive security strategy requires more than just malware blocking - encryption, email, web, and network access control solutions are strategic necessities.

Sophos has created a successful co-selling program by effectively collaborating on initial customer engagements and evaluations on through to post-sales support and service. Sophos makes doing business easier and more profitable for partners. As a result, partner revenues well exceed industry averages and for many, its relationship with Sophos represents their highest growth security vendor partnership.
