Sophos acquires DarkBytes

In News

Sophos, today announced that it has acquired endpoint security platform company, DarkBytes that offers a unified platform to deliver security operations center services to organizations of all sizes.The company brings to Sophos a highly talented team with rich domain experience in managed detection and response (MDR) and Security Orchestration Automation Response (SOAR).

“Sophos predicts that eventually all IT security products will evolve into adaptive, managed services as more organizations realize that they are unable to scale resources fast enough to respond to today’s threats,” commented Joe Levy, chief technology officer at Sophos. “The strength and architecture of the DarkBytes platform will accelerate Sophos’ plans to introduce global managed security services that will eventually span endpoint, firewall, mobile devices, wireless APs, and more. We welcome the DarkBytes team to Sophos and are excited to introduce these services through our partners over the coming months.”

MDR is a managed cybersecurity service designed to detect and respond to intrusions, malware, and malicious activity that often go undetected, enabling a faster response to eliminate and mitigate those threats. MDR augments security capabilities by providing a continuous monitoring service through a trusted third party, delivered through the combined intelligence of automated response and human expertise.

“The endpoint is the new perimeter of cybersecurity. It’s where the attacks happen and where the data lives,” commented Dennis Griffin, founder and former CEO at DarkBytes. “We built our unified platform to simplify high-end security operations using the combination of endpoint sensors and cloud-delivered analytics as the best way to achieve this. Our vision for using cloud-based, next-gen technology to make enterprise-grade cybersecurity simple to use made Sophos a natural home for the next stage of our development. We look forward to delivering the market’s most comprehensive and flexible endpoint security solutions.”
