Data Storage Corporation Partners with Sophos


Cloud infrastructure provider Data Storage Corporation (DSC) partners with Sophos in the move to expand its cybersecurity portfolio.

The company announced the alliance last Thursday, indicating that Sophos can help create enhanced security solutions to its networks. For DSC President of technical operations Thomas Kempster, Sophos can leverage the company’s security solution for cloud storage.


“It’s critical that organizations secure their networks and endpoints as they move systems and applications to the cloud. With Sophos, we’re enabling them to do exactly that with the industry’s best [artificial intelligence] enhanced security solutions,” said Kempster.

With the partnership, Data Storage Corporation customers can access Sophos’ cloud and network solutions for free—Intercept X, XG Firewall, Cloud Optics, and more. One of Sophos’ unique systems is Synchronized Security, wherein data is shared and the system automatically attacks threats. All of these are managed in a single pane of glass in Sophos Central.

Technical Expertise on Cyberattack Trends

Sophos also shares the same vision with DSC, arming networks with the best cyberattack systems to prevent breaches and hacking.

Sophos North America vice president for channel sales Erin Malone said the company is confident and armed with DSC—one of the best in terms of cyberattack solutions, to deliver effective security management.

Given the fast-paced and sophisticated cyberthreats in the digital storage networks, organizations need to rely on industry partners. These companies, like DSC and Sophos, have a deeper knowledge of cybersecurity and management services.

Aside from security-proof storage systems, DSC also provides migration movement and disaster recovery through tier 3 data.

Private equity investors acquired Sophos for $3.9 billion last October. The acquisition is part of Thoma Bravo’s plan to bring all next-generation tech companies together, in one synchronized system.

“The acquisition fits with our strategy of investing in and growing software and technology businesses globally. The global cybersecurity market is evolving rapidly, driven by significant technological innovation, as cyber threats to business increase in scope and complexity,” said Thoma Bravo managing partner Seth Boro.

This year’s biggest data breaches include the Equifax data breach that exposed the personal information of more than 147 million people. In April, Facebook exposed 540 million user names, passwords, and IDs on unprotected servers. Then in October, Adobe left 7.5 million Creative Cloud customer records in the open, exposing pictures and other files.

Sophos works with 400,000 organizations in more than 150 countries. Data Storage Corporation, on the other hand, assists clients with data analytics, email and security compliance, migration process, and disaster recovery.
