Telefonica UK (O2) and Sophos announced an agreement to offer Sophos products and services to the operator’s business customers in the UK.

O2 now offers its small and medium-sized business (SMB) customers Sophos’  security solutions for mobile devices, computers, servers, and email, as well as its encryption software tools.

O2 business customers who sign up to use Sophos via O2 will be granted access to the Sophos Central cloud-based security platform to deploy, configure and manage their services, making it even quicker and easier for them to secure their organisation.

Service and support

Sophos’ security products help businesses reduce exposure to cybersecurity risks by using behavioural analytics and machine learning to identify known and previously unseen threats.

It claims to be the only cybersecurity company to deliver synchronised security, where protection on endpoints and firewalls share information about network traffic and respond to hidden threats in real-time.

All Sophos products purchased through O2 are complemented by a range of support services, including professional services, training and premium customer support.
 
Maria Fernandez, director of SMB Sales, O2, said: “As our customers become increasingly mobile and make greater use of cloud-based services, they have told us that a comprehensive security solution that is simple to manage is key to keeping their business safe.

Sophos, with the O2 wraparound support, helps provide the security our customers need, so they can focus on running their business.”
