We have now launched Sophos ID, which allows customers and partners to access web services via a single login.
Existing accounts for MySophos and SophServ have been automatically moved to Sophos ID, so you won’t need to register for a new Sophos ID account if you have a MySophos account today.
You can also access Sophos Community, a merger of SophosTalk and Sophos FreeTalk, with your Sophos ID.
Over the coming months we’ll be migrating web services used by our customers and partners to Sophos ID, giving you one account to access all the web services you subscribe to.
Beginning in mid-August, we’re enabling login via Sophos ID for MySophos and SophServ. Using your Sophos ID, you’ll also be able to access Sophos Community, a merger of SophosTalk and Sophos FreeTalk. Later this year, we’ll enable Sophos ID for our partners to access the Partner Portal, Cloud Partner Dashboard, and Sophos Cloud Firewall Manager.
We’re extremely proud that Sophos has won the award for best IT vendor in all three security categories in CRN’s Annual Report Card (ARC). It was an honor to win more categories than any other vendor recognized this year.
For the second year running, we’ve been recognized as the winners of two categories – Client Security Software and Network Security Appliances – and this year the channel also chose us as the overall winner for Network Security Software.
The ARC summarizes results from a comprehensive survey of solution provider satisfaction with hardware, services and software vendors.
Hot on the heels of Sophos Cloud Web Gateway, we’re demonstrating our renewed investment in Secure Web Gateway and our leadership in this market with another exciting release.
We’re pleased to announce the release of version 4.1 of the Sophos Web Appliance (SWA). This update adds the flexibility to configure granular control and reporting on the use of LinkedIn, Facebook, Dropbox and many more web applications.
You may have seen the OpenSSL team announced, on Monday 2015-07-06, that it had a “high severity” update coming out in three days’ time. The update was published Thursday 2015-07-09.
The good news is no Sophos products are at risk from this bug. Only the current pre-release Beta version of Sophos Management Communication System (MCS 3.0.0 Beta), a component used by Sophos Cloud and UTM Endpoint products, includes an affected version of OpenSSL. However, MCS does not use the relevant part of the OpenSSL code for certificate verification, so cannot fall foul of the bug. Nevertheless, we expect to update MCS 3 Beta with the latest OpenSSL version by mid-August 2015.
All other Sophos product families either don’t use OpenSSL at all, or use one of the unaffected versions.
We’re grateful for our remarkable channel community, and we showed our thanks at the 2015 Sophos Partner Connections conferences, where we announced the winners of our Partner of the Year Awards.
This year’s conferences had a theme of “Discover Sophos” – emphasizing how we can all be disruptive pioneers and achieve great things together.
Mike Valentine, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales, Sophos, said: “The channel is a vital element of Sophos’s success and we place it at the heart of everything we do. So we were thrilled to recognize the achievements of our outstanding partners across the world and to celebrate their success. It’s exciting to see them embracing our complete IT security value proposition and recognizing the benefits of delivering our award-winning, simple-to-use security solutions to their customers.”
We’re honored to be recognized for the second year in a row as a Visionary in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Mobility Management Suites (EMM).* As one of just 12 vendors in this year’s Magic Quadrant, we think that says a lot about our understanding of the rapidly evolving mobility landscape.
Businesses of all sizes need an innovative mobile solution like Sophos Mobile Control (SMC) that keeps up with the rapid adoption of new devices and applications, and helps businesses protect their corporate data while empowering employees. This is what makes Sophos attractive to small and mid-sized enterprises – and has resulted in a 50% increase in SMC installations in the past year.
We believe we’re a Magic Quadrant Visionary for these five simple reasons:
