9. Sophos Recently Has Made Three Acquisitions

Sophos has been aggressive in the merger and acquisition space this year, kicking things off in January by buying emerging cloud infrastructure vendor Avid Secure to provide end-to-end protection around public cloud services such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google. Later that month, the company bought DarkBytes to provide the foundation for its new managed detection and response services.

Then in June, Sophos acquired managed detection and response provider Rook Security to help businesses of all sizes monitor, hunt for, analyze and respond to security incidents. Four months later, Sophos debuted a managed threat response service that integrates with the company's protection capabilities to ensure security teams end up dealing with the most important alerts.

The acquisition spree kicked off in February 2017 when Sophos purchased endpoint security startup Invincea for $120 million. All told, Sophos has made 13 acquisitions since 2003, according to CrunchBase.
