As Sophos’ largest EMEA wide strategic distributor, Infinigate will be pivotal in expanding Sophos in the U.K., enabling partners and MSPs to access Sophos’ entire portfolio of innovative managed services and endpoint, network, email, and cloud security solutions.
Infinigate is a leading, pan-EMEA distributor specializing in total cybersecurity solutions and services. With Infinigate Cloud, which provides partners with an ecosystem of cloud, managed and professional services to keep customers secure, this distribution agreement will help drive Sophos’ growth and reach to new customers.
Infinigate’s channel partners and MSPs will also be able to leverage Sophos’ newly launched Partner Care programme, a new offering that features a dedicated, 24x7 team of Sophos experts who handle non-sales-related questions and operational support. With Partner Care, channel partners and MSPs receive support with administrative and operational tasks, so that they can focus on selling and securing their customers with Sophos solutions.
Justin Griffiths, MD of Infinigate UK&I, said: “Sophos is an important addition to our UK portfolio of cybersecurity solutions, complementing and further enhancing our offering, and builds on our 20+ years’ successful relationship across Europe. We are looking forward to supporting our channel partners and MSPs in taking advantage of this great growth opportunity by providing a dedicated team of Sophos specialists and an award-winning MSP platform. Whether partners are looking to grow their traditional Sophos business, or their secure cloud offering then our extensive dedicate Sophos team of pre-sales, post-sales, solutions architects, marketing and business development people will work with partners to leverage the double-digit growth opportunity in the market.”
Gerard Allison, senior vice president for sales EMEA, Sophos, said, “Infinigate has a strong track record as a pan-EMEA distributor specializing in total cybersecurity solutions. With a best-in-class cloud platform, this agreement will enable us to scale our operations in the region, offering greater support for MSPs that are looking to protect themselves and customers from ever-increasing cyberthreats. The availability of our portfolio of innovative solutions including the newly launched Sophos Managed Risk, a worldwide vulnerability and attack surface management service, will enable channel partners to offer multi-layered protection to their customers and scale their business.”
“At Sophos, the channel is at the center of our go to market strategy, and distribution is integral to how we scale and grow our business moving forward. Working with Infinigate in the U.K. supports this strategy, and I look forward to working with the team to expand our partner reach,” said John Mitchell, channel director EMEA North at Sophos.
