Sophos Recognized as Pacesetter by the Boston Business Journal

Sophos Press Release

IT security and data protection company Sophos today announced that the company has been listed as one of the Boston region’s fastest-growing private companies in Boston Business Journal’s annual Pacesetter list. The 2012 Pacesetters are comprised of companies that have reported strong financial growth over the past four years despite the challenging economy.

"We're always honored to recognize dynamic, privately-held companies through our Pacesetters program," Boston Business Journal Publisher Christopher McIntosh said. "But it's a special privilege at a time when these businesses are widely recognized as the engines driving our economic recovery. The success of these 73 companies testifies not just to the vision of their owners and employees, but also to the health of our region."

“Our growth at Sophos is intimately tied to the success of the Boston region, since many local companies use our products to protect their IT,” said Rainer Gawlick, CMO, Sophos. “Our goal is to take away the pain of IT security so that IT teams can focus on helping their companies grow.  And being listed alongside so many of our customers and other successful privately-held companies is a testament to our great team.”
