Sophos has taken over sector partner Rook Security. Rook Security specialises in managed detection and response (MDR) and has a team of cyberthreat hunters and incident response experts who provide their services 24/7.

Founded in 2008, Rook Security monitors, hunts, analyzes, and responds to cyber security incidents in companies of all sizes. Sophos will combine these services with the recently acquired DarkBytes technology platform for the development of a fully-fledged MDR offering.

Companies need 24/7 monitoring and management of what’s happening on their network, but many of them don’t have the expertise, can’t keep up with developments or don’t have the internal security teams to optimally configure and manage their security around the clock, says Joe Levy, CTO at Sophos. With MDR, Sophos’ channel partners can provide companies of all sizes with expert services that continuously detect, detect and resolve incidents.

In addition, Sophos plans to align its Synchronized Security and product portfolio with Rook Security’s 24/7 services for MDR customers. Rook Security experts will also be able to assess the security of these customers to ensure that Sophos products are optimally configured across different locations.

Further details of the acquisition are not currently disclosed.
