Sophos Launches Managed Security Services Provider Program
Sophos unveiled the details of its managed security services provider program this week, touting its pay-as-you-go monthly billing and usage-based pricing for MSP license holders. "We are the first to launch this managed security services program where it is a utility pay-as-you-go program," said Kendra Krause, Sophos' new Americas channel chief.
Like other endpoint security vendors, Sophos is Web-enabling its product portfolio to appeal to SMBs. And the vendor is in heated competition with Kaspersky Lab and other vendors to capture a larger share of SMB customers.
The new Sophos Complete MSP Security offering ties together the company's Astaro purchase, now called Sophos UTM, and its endpoint software and SaaS-based mobile device security platform.
