Q&A: Sophos CEO On WannaCry Ransomware, New Products And Double-Digit Security Growth


What can partners expect to see from Sophos as it looks to continue the growth trajectory it is on?

The message that we were sharing with everyone at the partner conference was pretty simple. One: this game plan is really working. We bet 100 percent on the channel. They are not just one of our routes to market, they are our only route market. That commitment to the channel is really working. No. 2: we will continue to drive innovation in Sophos Central, in products like Intercept X for next-generation endpoint and anti-ransomware, in the Invincea product for machine learning, in the firewall, in Synchronized Security to bring together all these components … We think that the approach that Sophos is taking to the market, with a single integrated cloud platform that is focused on the midmarket enterprises, dedication to continuous innovation, all delivered with simplicity and manageability, and all done through the channel – we think that is a very unique approach to the market. It is working. It is really working for our channel partners. We are going to continue to double and triple down on it. There is more of the same [growth] to come, that's for sure.
