Delivering superior cybersecurity outcomes requires a relentless focus on the development, refinement, and continual expansion of capabilities that enable security leaders to do their jobs more effectively.

A critical component for maintaining that improvement cycle is input from outside of Sophos: feedback from customers, independent testing organizations, and the analyst community.

That’s why Sophos is committed to participating in public evaluations and third-party tests that are independent, unpaid, and performed on a regular basis.

In its newly released evaluation of 10 leading endpoint security solutions, independent analyst firm KuppingerCole named Sophos a Leader, sweeping all product, innovation, and market leadership ratings.
