Sophos experiences worldwide growth for MSP Connect

Sophos has reported accelerated worldwide growth across its MSP Connect partner programme, driven by increased demand for its cybersecurity solutions and services. 

MSP Connect now supports more than 16,500 global and regional MSPs worldwide, representing a 54% increase since April 1, 2020, Sophos notes.  

With its fiscal year running from April to March, the security firm said it achieved a 67% YoY MSP Connect billings increase in Q1 of fiscal year 2022 and a 55% YoY billings growth in fiscal year 2021.

Sophos wrapped up its fiscal year with double-digit MSP Connect growth in the Americas, Asia-Pacific and Japan, and EMEA regions. The areas that made significant gains were the US, UK, Ireland, Germany, and Australia and New Zealand, the company adds. 

“The world experienced a necessary shift to remote working this past year, requiring businesses to rely heavily on the cloud,” said Scott Barlow, Sophos VP of global MSP and cloud alliances. “MSPs have been on the front lines since day one, helping organisations secure hybrid workforces with remote employees – a critical role considering changing attacker tactics, techniques and procedures that increasingly involve remote access services such as Remote Desktop Protocol. MSP Connect makes it easier than ever for MSPs to secure diverse customer environments with one comprehensive cybersecurity portfolio that’s simple to deploy and manage.”
