OXFORD, U.K. – Dec. 1, 2021  Sophos, a global leader in next-generation cybersecurity, today announced it has been named a Customers’ Choice in the October 2021 Gartner Peer Insights Voice of the Customer: Endpoint Protection Platforms (EPP) report. Sophos is the highest rated and most reviewed of all named vendors, earning an overall vendor rating of 4.8 out of 5 across 505 verified customer reviews as of August 31, 2021.

“In a year marked by devastating ransomware attacks and other advanced threats, bulletproof endpoint protection has never been more critical,” said Dan Schiappa, chief product officer at Sophos. “Nearly 40 percent of organizations surveyed in Sophos’ State of Ransomware 2021 report were hit with ransomware between 2020 and 2021, with total remediation costs from these attacks averaging nearly $2 million. Sophos is committed to turning this tide by arming organizations of all sizes and across all market segments with the industry’s best endpoint protection. This customer recognition, in our opinion, is validation of our dedication to developing the best endpoint protection to defend against adversaries.”
