Sophos acquires Endforce

Sophos announced that it has acquired Endforce, a leader in network access control (NAC) and endpoint security policy compliance solutions for enterprise customers. Sophos will build on Endforce’s position as the leading stand-alone NAC provider for organisations with more than 10,000 users, and also integrate NAC as part of its comprehensive endpoint security solution.

“This acquisition will enable us to target a new sector of the security industry, as well as bringing our existing customers the most proven mass deployed enterprise NAC solution on the market,” said Steve Munford, CEO of Sophos. “Administrators demand the option of choosing a NAC provider without the risk of disrupting installed systems, and Sophos is now able to meet this demand ahead of the competition.”

Endforce, based in Columbus, Ohio, has deployed its software-based NAC solutions to some of the most complex multi-national corporate networks in the world. “Securing the endpoint is the most practical and effective method to implement access control over a heterogeneous network,” said Gregg Moore, CEO of Endforce.

“The addition of Network Access Control further expands our proposition of total security and control over what is allowed to run on the network as well as who has access and to what,” continued Munford.
