Sophos CEO: We’re betting entirely on the cloud
Sophos is betting entirely on the cloud in a bid to make it easier for understaffed IT departments to manage cyberattacks.
Kris Hagerman, CEO of the computer security company, said Thursday the challenge is that SMBs often have small IT departments and may have no one dedicated to full-time security.
“The vast, vast majority of enterprises around the world just don’t have an army of dedicated IT security professionals,” Hagerman said.
Sophos, with headquarters in Abingdon, England, is one of many vendors in the “unified threat management” segment, which sell a bundle of security tools ranging from firewalls to endpoint antivirus to small and medium size businesses.
