Arcserve UDP and Sophos Intercept X Advanced for Server power the service.The goal of the Arcserve UDP Cloud Hybrid Secured by Sophos service is to protect workloads for cohesive cloud security. Offered as a fully managed service extension to Arcserve UDP software and appliances, it provides cyber protection and policy-based management. Both business cybersecurity protection products are available for an annual subscription. This extension of Arcserve and Sophos’ alliance provides channel partners with the industry’s only means to combat cyberattacks with solutions that intelligently integrate cybersecurity and data protection to prevent data loss of on-premises, cloud and SaaS workloads,” Oussama El-Hilali, Arcserve’s CTO, told Channel Futures.


For over a year, we’ve seen an escalation in ransomware attacks not only on businesses, but on MSPs and IT services providers, too. Ransomware gangs have also been changing up their tactics, attacking data backups and workloads stored in the cloud to force victims into paying ransoms. For channel partners, the products deliver Arcserve and Sophos developers’ knowledge to help protect customers, El-Hilali said. “Further, they can remove multivendor complexity and support evolving IT challenges, such as quickly standing up remote workforces and protecting increasingly distributed data.” The alliance also enables partners to access a larger portion of customer IT budgets to increase profitability, said El-Hilali.“It also allows them to win more deals against both pure backup and security solutions, which they can attach to renewals to eliminate churn.” El-Hilali says channel partners are asking for combined services such as these and customers want them.
