The editors of our media partner, Channel Futures, will sit with Sophos CEO Joe Levy for a wide-ranging interview. This interview is part of the Channel Futures Executive Interview Series hosted at The MSP Summit. Levy has served as Sophos’ CTO, president of its technology group, and now is the acting CEO. He brings a partner’s perspective to the job, given his time working for a VAR and integrator. Today, Levy oversees what many consider one of the largest pure-play cybersecurity providers in the world with an expansive global MSP channel. During this interview, our editors will ask Levy about how the company’s acquisition by private-equity giant Thoma Bravo changed its growth trajectory and business model, how its relationship with MSPs and security-focused partners is evolving, and the work he did to help transform Sophos from a product-only provider to a cybersecurity-as-a-service company. Of course, we will probe his thoughts on the game-changing role of AI in the security business along with Sophos’ recent success in the managed detection and response market. Security solutions are at the core of every MSP and managed services-focused organization, so this is one interview you don’t want to miss.
