Sophos Amplifies Network Security
FREMONT, CA: Sophos made an announcement that it has acquired Cyberoam Technologies, a global provider of network security products. The acquisition of cyberoam blooms Sophos’ product portfolio in network security, by combining Cyberoam’s Unified Threat Management (UTM), next-generation firewall and network security expertise with existing network security solutions in UTM and wireless security.
“Cyberoam has built a strong reputation as an aggressive and nimble innovator in the network security market, and like Sophos, has a ‘channel-first’ approach and reputation for delivering top-notch service and support. The acquisition expands and accelerates our network security roadmap to grow our presence in UTM, advanced threat protection, wireless and next generation firewall – some of the fastest growing markets in all of IT. This also continues our focus of providing exciting opportunities to grow our channel partners and customers.” said Kris Hagerman, Chief Executive Officer for Sophos.
Cyberoam’s high performance UTM and next generation Firewall appliances, built on a similar Intel-based architecture as Sophos’ UTM solutions, yield advanced technologies that will complement and expand the entire Sophos network security portfolio. Some of these technologies are user-based network policies, sophisticated next-generation firewall capabilities and advanced threat protection.
“We are growing our network security businesses substantially faster than the market, and joining forces allows us to drive even greater innovation and value. Our global footprint, commitment to the channel and complete security portfolio are clear competitive differentiators. We’re pleased to join the Sophos team.” Hemal Patel, CEO of Cyberoam.
