Sophos Announces the Acquisition of SOC.OS

The solution consolidates and prioritizes massive volumes of security warnings from dozens of IT and security products and platforms across an organization’s estate, allowing security operations teams to swiftly analyze and respond to the most critical ones.
Sophos intends to advance its Managed Threat Response (MTR) and Extended Detection and Response (XDR) solutions for businesses of all sizes using SOC.OS. SOC.OS will also assist Sophos in expanding its Adaptive Cybersecurity Ecosystem, which serves as the foundation for all Sophos security solutions. This will include warnings and events generated by third-party endpoint, server, firewall, Identity and Access Management (IAM), cloud workload, email, and mobile security solutions.
Sophos MTR is the company’s fastest-growing new offering in its history. Sophos is now one of the world’s leading Managed Detection and Response (MDR) businesses, providing improved security outcomes to over 8,000 customers through a MTR service. Customers’ #1 enhancement request is ‘greater integrations with existing security environments,’ and with SOC.OS’ revolutionary technology, customers will be able to do just that – easily combine Sophos’ MTR and XDR solutions with their existing set of security and IT solutions.
SOC.OS will also give a broader collection of third-party telemetry to Sophos’ Adaptive Cybersecurity Ecosystem, giving security analysts more visibility into crucial events and alerts. SOC.OS offers a long number of integrations that will benefit Sophos clients as the company expands and develops industry-leading XDR and MDR capabilities.
