Sophos, a global leader in next-generation cybersecurity, today announced a UK distribution agreement with Arrow Electronics. Under the agreement, the first in the UK for Sophos, Arrow will distribute Sophos’ complete portfolio of business security solutions and services that help protect users, networks and endpoints against ransomware, malware, exploits, phishing and other cyberattacks.
“This is an exciting time for Sophos as we begin working alongside our first UK distributor,” said Jonathan Bartholomew, vice president of sales Northern Europe at Sophos. “At Sophos, we always strive to provide an excellent service, and this step will allow us to develop even stronger growth relationships. Arrow has an established reputation as a global supply chain partner, helping businesses to harness the power of complex and innovative technologies. As such, they can now expand our reach to MSPs and resellers, arming them with our innovative portfolio of next-generation products and threat response services that offer organizations of all sizes better protection against fast-changing cyberattacks.”
Arrow will support in the scale of Sophos’ operations by introducing automated ordering, cloud marketplaces, and new finance options, amongst many other benefits. It will also allow the Sophos sales team to jointly focus on providing new projects and support, further building customer trust in their security provider and help increase revenue.
As a worldwide leader in cybersecurity, Sophos delivers AI-powered, cloud-based cybersecurity solutions, including the recently launched Extended Detection and Response (XDR) solutions that synchronize native endpoint, server, firewall, and email security. Sophos XDR solutions are part of the Sophos adaptive cybersecurity ecosystem (ACE), a new open security architecture that optimizes threat prevention, detection and response. Arrow will be offering Sophos’ entire business portfolio, including Sophos ACE, which leverages automation and analytics, as well as the collective input of Sophos products, partners, customers, developers, and other security industry vendors to create protection that continuously improves – a virtuous cycle that is constantly learning and advancing.
Partners can easily manage Sophos products through Sophos Central, a single integrated cloud-based management dashboard to navigate quickly between products and across multiple customers. Sophos also offers Rapid Response and Managed Threat Response services to provide organizations of all sizes with 24/7 incident response, threat hunting and threat analysis.
