Gerard has a deep understanding of the distribution and reseller channel, as well as extensive knowledge of successfully establishing new routes to market. With this impressive track record, Gerard will be a valuable and important Sophos sales leader overseeing EMEA, particularly as we head into 2023 with our new Sophos Managed Detection and Response service,” said Michael Valentine, chief revenue officer at Sophos. “The need for modern cybersecurity solutions, including MDR services from a team of experts trained to spot intrusions ‘hiding in plain sight’ along the attack chain, has become imperative, as indicated in the Sophos 2023 Threat Report. Sophos’ line up of products, services and threat intelligence capabilities, coupled with Gerard’s career expertise in cybersecurity and technology, will ensure our EMEA partners provide customers and prospects with the most advanced security solutions available.”

“Sophos is an industry leader, pioneering the way with a new type of MDR service that every organization can benefit from, so I am thrilled to be joining Sophos at this time and leading the company’s impressive sales team in EMEA,” said Allison. “I am also looking forward to working closely with our extensive partner network in the region to develop new revenue streams and ensure customers have the proper security needed to defend against today’s persistent attackers.”
