For the third consecutive year, Sophos has been named a leader in the IDC MarketScape: Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) for Small and Midsize Businesses.
The IDC MarketScape evaluated 18 vendors based on how their device management and security capabilities meet the needs of small and midsize organisations.
Sophos believes that one of the key contributors to its position is how its UEM offering uniquely ties into Sophos XDR.
By storing mobile events and information inside the Sophos XDR data lake, customers benefit from enhanced visibility into events taking place across their environment.
All this information is stored side-by-side with each of Sophos’ XDR-enabled products – endpoint, server, firewall, email, and cloud security – allowing customers to surface suspicious activity and investigate it across the entire estate.
Through integration with workflow automation tools, Sophos UEM can also drive automated response actions, allowing UEM to be utilised as an enforcement point to remediate detected breaches, suspicious activity, or detected malware on devices.
The IDC MarketScape noted, “With a core focus on the SMBs and midmarket enterprises, Sophos’ broad portfolio of cybersecurity, networking, and analytics products offers customers a broad range of integration opportunities with its UEM product, strengthening the management offering as part of a larger Sophos security/management platform.”
Sophos Central is Sophos’ unified cybersecurity platform, enabling customers to manage and secure their devices side-by-side with each of the company’s other next-gen protection solutions.
Consolidation into a single cloud platform helps improve cross estate visibility and security whilst reducing admin efforts.
“We are honoured to be a distributor of Sophos technology in South Africa.”
“By aligning ourselves with vendors focused on providing customer-centric products, we can provide our client base with best practice in endpoint management technology,” says Ross Anderson, Sophos Product Development Manager at Duxbury Networking.
