Perfect solution for MSPs:

According to the Allianz Risk Barometer, cyber perils are the biggest concern for companies globally in 2022, with 43% of all data breaches involving small and medium-sized businesses. They trust their IT- and Managed Service Providers to protect them against ransomware, e-mail, or cloud attacks. ALSO is constantly expanding its Cybersecurity platform to support resellers in mastering this challenge. With Sophos, they now have cutting edge technology available to deploy to their customers. Powered by threat intelligence, AI and machine learning, the security expert delivers a broad portfolio of advanced products and services to secure users, networks, and endpoints against a wide range of cyber threats.

“Sophos is excited to launch API integration into ALSO Cloud Marketplace and deliver its world class Managed Threat and Response service and security products, like Sophos Intercept X, to MSPs throughout Europe. MSPs will be able to procure licenses on a monthly subscription, auto-provision customers and automate billing, freeing up more of their time to defend against attack cyberattacks,” said Scott Barlow, Vice President, global MSP and Cloud Alliances. “With the threat landscape constantly changing and ransomware payments at an all-time high, as evidenced in Sophos’ recent annual State of Ransomware report, MSPs need access to advanced solutions that detect, protect and respond to cyber intruders as early as possible on the attack chain.”
Sophos MSP Connect Flex is a flexible MSP program connecting resellers and their customers with a comprehensive and simple security solution. To obtain MSP Connect Flex status, partners must complete the MSP Connect Flex certification training by passing an exam. This training is free of charge and can be completed online at any time.

Chuck Cohen, Consumptional Sales Director at ALSO Holding AG (SIX: ALSN): “Revenue in the Cybersecurity market is projected to reach 146.30 bn US Dollars in 2022, with an expected annual growth rate of 9.68 percent worldwide, resulting in a market volume of 211.70 bn US Dollars by 2026. The partnership with Sophos allows our resellers to participate in this growth even more, enabling them to execute and deliver faster – both crucial elements when it comes to cybersecurity. We already have started the rollout of products in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland, Denmark and Spain will follow during this month.”
