New partnership ensures effective cyber defence for cloud services
Tarsus On Demand is reshaping the cybersecurity world and is proud to announce that it has partnered with Sophos, a global leader in cybersecurity. The partnership brings together cloud expertise and cutting-edge security solutions, elevating the standards of protection in the industry.
Sophos is a worldwide leader and innovator of advanced cybersecurity solutions, including Managed Detection and Response (MDR) and incident response services as well as a broad portfolio of endpoint, network, email, and cloud security technologies that help defeat cyberattacks. These solutions connect through its cloud-based Sophos Central management console and are powered by Sophos X-Ops, the company’s cross-domain threat intelligence unit.
“Our relationship with Sophos is a strategic move that underscores our commitment to provide our partners with the very best cybersecurity solutions available,” explains Inayeth Govender, Demand Generation General Manager at Tarsus On Demand. With a strong reputation and expertise in the cybersecurity domain, Sophos’ innovative security solutions are a perfect match for our mission to offer effective cyber defences to our partners, adds Govender.
“Working with Sophos reinforces Tarsus On Demand’s commitment to delivering holistic cloud solutions. It solidifies the strategy to offer not only cloud services but also comprehensive security, making cybersecurity a fundamental component of Tarsus On Demand’s operations,” says Govender.
This collaboration substantially enhances Tarsus On Demand’s existing cybersecurity offerings with industry-leading solutions, effectively raising the bar for protection, detection and response to persistent attackers who are constantly changing their tactics techniques and procedures (TTPs).
Partners and their customers are set to gain from a one-stop shop for cloud services and cybersecurity. Tarsus On Demand is introducing a dedicated team of experts to provide training, support, and guidance, enabling partners to leverage these solutions effectively.
The Sophos and Tarsus On Demand relationship also provides cost-saving benefits for partners and their customers. By integrating advanced security into cloud offerings, partners can streamline their operations and realise cost efficiencies while ensuring robust security for their customers.
“By working with Sophos and Tarsus On Demand, partners will receive automated provisioning and billing to accelerate their monthly recurring revenue,” said Scott Barlow, vice president of global MSP and cloud alliances at Sophos.
“This administrative ‘ease of use’ allows partners to focus on what matters most and that is building their business by providing the best cybersecurity solutions that defeat cyberattacks. We know from our Sophos X-Ops experts that attacker dwell time is quickly diminishing, meaning there is less time to detect and stop attacks in progress. Having the right threat intelligence, products and services in place from the start helps partners better prevent, monitor and disrupt any attacks on their customers,” adds Barlow.
“Tarsus On Demand has always been at the forefront of industry trends. With Sophos, we’re addressing not just a trend but a necessity in cybersecurity,” says Govender.
New products and services from Tarsus On Demand and Sophos are available to partners from 13 November 2023. For more information contact Tarsus On Demand – https://www.tarsus.co.za/contact-us
