Where others stop at notification, Sophos MDR takes action.

Taking Care of the NHS with Sophos MDR

“Sophos MDR has become a fourth member of the team, someone who can wear that security hat 24/7/365. With MDR in full on ‘hands off mode’ we know we are continually protected around the clock, and with continued support from CyberLab we are able to ensure our solutions are always fit for purpose.”
– IT Infrastructure Team Lead, Spicerhaart
The Housing Association were able to discuss their challenges in detail with Sophos, and our team presented a series of demos to ensure they got the required solution. Once diverse options had been compared and commercials discussed, they decided Sophos MDR was the right solution for their specific needs.
“Having Sophos MDR gives us peace of mind 24/7. Not only that, but in a recent audit which was to be undertaken on our endpoints and configuration, mentioning that we have MTR in place led them to tick us off and say there was nothing more they would need to look at.”
– Head of IT, Housing Association
