We proudly accept this award on behalf of our frontline partners as validation of their success in protecting customers of all sizes and across all industries from constantly evolving cyberthreats.”

Sophos’ robust, integrated portfolio of managed security services and solutions – including Sophos Managed Detection and Response (MDR), Sophos Incident Response, Sophos Intercept X with XDRSophos FirewallSophos Cloud Native Security, and more – protect against today’s most advanced cyberattacks. Offerings are powered by deep threat intelligence from Sophos X-Ops, and are easily managed in the cloud-native Sophos Central platform or by Sophos MDR. 

CRN's ARC Awards honor best-in-class technology vendors that are committed to growing the IT channel through technology innovation and partner relations. Winners are determined based on the results of an invitation-only survey, conducted by The Channel Company, of 3,300 North American solution providers. 68 vendors were evaluated.

"It’s an honor to recognize these vendors that regularly deliver industry-leading products and services to further successful channel partner relationships,” said Blaine Raddon, chief executive officer at The Channel Company. “In addition to showcasing our winners, CRN's Annual Report Card Awards give vendors useful input and insight into how they stand with partners that can be implemented into their channel strategies going forward.”

This is the latest in a series of CRN accolades for Sophos, which already this year has been named a CRN Tech Innovator and to CRN’s MES Midmarket 100 list. More than a dozen Sophos executives have also been recognized this year by CRN as the industry’s Most Influential Executives and top Channel Sales Leaders on the Top 100 Executives list; Women of the Channel; Inclusive Channel Leaders; and more. 

Winners of the CRN ARC Awards will be featured throughout The Channel Company’s XChange 2023 conference, taking place Aug. 20-22 in Nashville, Tenn. Coverage of the results can be found online at www.CRN.com/ARC and will be featured in the October 2023 issue of CRN Magazine.
