Sophos has announced the opening of a new office in Silicon Valley, California in what has been described as a key corporate initiative for the company as it looks to enter its next phase of growth.

The new office strengthens the company’s ability to support its growing network of value added resellers, distributors and strategic partners across North America, and particularly on the west coast.

“Sophos is thrilled to join the many other technology leaders that call Silicon Valley home,” says Kris Hagerman, CEO and president, Sophos.

“A meaningful presence in Silicon Valley gives us a golden opportunity to capitalise on the technology trends and partnership opportunities that are so abundant in this area.

“Silicon Valley is a renowned global centre for the disruptive innovation, top talent and strategic relationships that will help propel Sophos to the next level.”

Echoing Hagerman’s comments, Mike Valentine, senior vice president of worldwide sales and channel, adds: “Sophos is a global company with global reach.

“Given our ‘Channel First’ sales strategy, it’s important that we have a strong physical presence in the areas that will drive the greatest opportunities.

“This is why we’ve expanded to the Bay Area, adding it to the other 40 offices we maintain around the world. Sophos is building a market-leading channel program, constantly recruiting and enabling top-notch partners to join our team.

“This new office provides more evidence of our growing investment in the North America IT security market.”
