Sophos Plays a Quartet of Aces
This May 2021 Market Note provides IDC’s point of view on the Sophos Adaptive Cybersecurity Ecosystem (ACE); extensions and additions to Sophos’ detection and response portfolio; the Sophos Secure Access portfolio; and our extended services offerings, centered on the Sophos Managed Threat Response (MTR) service.
“The adaptive and open architecture Sophos has launched with ACE reflects a pragmatic approach to the challenges of providing protection against an ever-changing threat landscape”
Sophos Adaptive Cybersecurity Ecosystem
The Sophos Adaptive Cybersecurity Ecosystem is a broad system that underpins all Sophos products and services. It leverages automation and analysts, as well as the Sophos data lake, next-gen technologies, and open APIs to create protection that continuously improves.
And best of all, you can start small and grow. Begin with Sophos endpoint or firewall technology and build off that foundation.
From EDR and Synchronized Security to XDR
Sophos Extended Detection and Response (XDR), launched May 2021, enables organizations to detect and investigate across endpoint, server, firewall, and other data sources – all underpinned by the Sophos data lake. It builds on and extends our market-leading Synchronized Security technology which enables Sophos products to work together and automatically respond to incidents.
Secure Access Portfolio
Secure network access is a top priority for almost all organizations and Sophos offers a complete and robust secure access portfolio to connect anyone, anywhere - on the service edge, or the core network:
- Sophos ZTNA securely connects your users to your applications, from any location
- Sophos SD-RED devices provide affordable zero-touch service access SD-WAN VPN connectivity
- Our new Network Switch series, coming late 2021, provides essential core network access and segmentation
