Sophos acquires SOC.OS

Sophos, a cybersecurity vendor, has acquired SOC.OS, a cloud-based security alert investigation and triage automation solution provider. 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. The company is privately held and based in Milton Keynes.

Sophos plans to advance its Managed Threat Response (MTR) and Extended Detection and Response (XDR) solutions with SOC.OS. SOC.OS will also help Sophos expand its Adaptive Cybersecurity Ecosystem, including providing alerts and events from third-party endpoint, server, firewall, Identity and Access Management (IAM), cloud workload, email, and mobile security products.

Joe Levy, chief technology and product officer, Sophos, said, “SOC.OS will provide our Adaptive Cybersecurity Ecosystem with a broader set of third-party telemetry, so security analysts have better visibility into important events and alerts. SOC.OS has an impressive list of integrations that will benefit Sophos customers as we continue to expand and develop industry-leading XDR and MDR capabilities. We’re very excited to bring the team and technology from SOC.OS onboard.”

Dave Mareels, chief executive officer and co-founder, SOC.OS, added, “Alert fatigue and lack of visibility still plague security teams worldwide. Considering this, against the backdrop of constantly changing cyberthreats and a challenging talent landscape, defenders need new and innovative products and services that can help them solve more complex incidents in less time. By joining forces with Sophos, we can address these challenges together, head on.”
