Sophos Goes 100 Percent Channel

The North American arm of U.K.-based security software company Sophos PLC has adopted an all-channel sales model, a sharp change from the company's previous mix of 50 percent channel and 50 percent direct sales.

"This is a move that we've actually been contemplating for a number of years," says Mark Hatton, Sophos president for North America. "[Partners] probably never felt comfortable that we were fully committed to the channel because we were doing some business outside the channel."

The Burlington, Mass.-based company's main product is Sophos Endpoint Security, which consists of an enterprise console for managing the endpoints, Sophos Anti-Virus and Sophos Client Firewall, with an optional component for securing Windows Mobile devices. The company competes primarily with Symantec Inc. and McAfee Inc.
