Wednesday 8 October 2014 | 15:42 CET | News

Sophos has acquired cloud-based security firm Mojave Networks. This acquisition will strengthen Sophos' cloud-managed and appliance-based security services. 

For Sophos Cloud, an integrated cloud-managed security offering, Mojave will add cloud-based web security. For Sophos' line of network security hardware, it will enable hybrid deployment options (SaaS and non-SaaS) to meet a range of web security needs. In addition, the acquisition of Mojave will provide Sophos with a cloud-based web filtering engine, real-time threat intelligence from the cloud, a simple and intuitive management experience designed for small and mid-market enterprises, and a zero-compromise approach to security across Windows, Mac, iOS and Android devices. 

Sophos plans to integrate Mojave Networks' technology into the Sophos Cloud product line in early 2015 and then later in 2015 into appliance-based network security services. No financial details of the takeover were disclosed.
