Wednesday 15th June, 2022

We are proud to have advised Sophos, a global leader in next-generation cybersecurity, on its acquisition ofSOC.OS, an innovator of a cloud-based security alert investigation and triage automation solution.

The solution consolidates and prioritises high volumes of security alerts from multiple products and platforms across an organisation’s estate, allowing security operations teams to quickly understand and respond to the most urgent cases flagged. SOC.OS launched in 2020 and is a spinout of BAE Systems Digital Intelligence.

With SOC.OS, Sophos plans to advance its Managed Threat Response (MTR) and Extended Detection and Response (XDR) solutions for organizations of all sizes. SOC.OS will also help Sophos expand its Adaptive Cybersecurity Ecosystem, which underpins all of Sophos’ security solutions. This will include providing alerts and events from third-party endpoint, server, firewall, Identity and Access Management (IAM), cloud workload, email, and mobile security products.

The MH team was led by Daniel Jacob and James Stenning and included Charlotte Lewczynski, Ben Cole and Liberty Pearl, Katerina Heal and Alex Lee.
