Sophos has introduced enhancements to MSP Connect that will help unlock revenue opportunities, increase productivity and lower operational costs.
MSP Connect is a program that makes it easier for Managed Service Providers [MSPs] to deploy, manage and sell Sophos’ entire product portfolio.
The enhancements include new security offerings for Managed Detection and Response (MDR) and cloud security, as well as new professional services automation (PSA) and remote monitoring and management (RMM) integrations.
Sophos MSP Connect supports more than 8,000 global and regional MSPs worldwide.
MSP billings increased 83 per cent in the first half of Sophos’ fiscal year, resulting in annual recurring revenue of USD 33 million.
“To further support this growth, Sophos is expanding its MSP program with optimised offerings that directly meet the evolving needs of MSPs and their customers,” said Scott Barlow, vice president, Global MSP, Sophos.
New MSP Connect offerings include:
- Sophos Managed Threat Response (MTR): New MSP Flex options empower MSPs to provide fully managed threat hunting, detection and response services with flexible monthly billing. Now with added support for Windows Server, macOS and Linux, Sophos MTR is customisable with different service tiers and response modes to meet the unique and evolving needs of MSPs, giving them ownership and control of licenses
- Sophos Cloud Optix: MSP Flex billing options now also extend to Cloud Optix, a powerful solution that automatically discovers and secures customer assets stored in AWS, Azure and Google Cloud. Now available on Sophos Central, it’s easily managed via a single pane of glass on the unified cloud-based platform, and Flex billing is based on an MSP’s aggregate cloud assets
- Expanded PSA/RMM Integrations: New PSA and RMM integrations enable partners to automate manual data entry and invoicing. Sophos expands integrations with Datto, Kaseya and ConnectWise Manage
Designed to meet the unique needs of MSPs, Sophos Central is at the heart of Sophos MSP Connect.
The partner dashboard enables MSPs to easily manage multiple customer installations, respond to alerts, enforce two-factor authentication, manage global policies and role-based administration, oversee licenses, and track upcoming renewal dates via a single, intuitive interface.
