We are becoming a disruptive leader in the IT security market, and the company'sdedication to the success of its partners is second to none," added Chib.

The event brought together key channel partners from around the EMEAregion to discuss theirmarket strategy and to plan howto add value to customers as threat experts. It alsoincluded workshops, networking sessions, and meetings with Sophos experts where partners were advised and mentored about the threats in the region such as ransomware and howSophos Intercept X , one of its fastest growing products is used to combat these sophisticated cyber threats. Through this conference, partners were also introduced to the new app that allows partners to track and manage customers as well as submit deal registrations. It also gives them an overall visibility into the business and across platforms.
