Sophos CEO Kris Hagerman’s 10 Boldest Remarks From Best Of Breed Virtual Winter 2021
From surging sales and profitability and securing the supply chain to combating complexity and doubling down on detection and response, here’s a look at 10 notable statements made by Sophos CEO Kris Hagerman.
Good Enough Security Isn’t Enough Nowadays
There’s Sophos and then there’s good enough. If you have something that you think is good enough – given the wave of ransomware and the wave and the volume of attacks – it doesn’t take a very big difference between good enough and world’s best before you really regret it.
We’ve got over 12,000 MSP partners. A lot of those are coming from environments where they’re working with other endpoint providers who said they were kind of good enough, but the moment that you got a breach, all of your decisions around, ‘Hey, that’s good enough’ go out the window. Because, not only have you jeopardized your reputation with the customers, but, of course, the customer is in the middle of the breach. That could be a business life threatening event for that company.
In our view, there’s no practical alternative for a partner that really cares about it’s ongoing reputation and its business but to be really thorough and confident in ensuring that whoever you’re working with, as a security vendor, has really nailed, in a comprehensive way, some of these core attack vectors.
