Miami-Dade Selects Sophos

Miami-Dade Public Schools has selected Sophos to protect 90,000 desktops and 50,000 email accounts

BOSTON -- Sophos, a world leader in IT security and control, today announced that Miami-Dade Public Schools has selected Sophos to protect 90,000 desktops and 50,000 email accounts from spam, viruses, worms, spyware and potentially unwanted applications for the next four years. The district will also utilize Sophos Professional Services to ensure that the switch from its legacy McAfee solution to Sophos is accomplished seamlessly.

After more than a year of evaluating numerous security solutions, Sophos was selected as the best choice for the district based on breadth of coverage; speed of detection; better computer performance; the size, speed and frequency of updates; a simplified console; superior detection technology; and the quality of Sophos’s technical support.

“Throughout the evaluation, Sophos was enormously attentive to our needs and requirements,” said Thomas Sims, director, network services, Office of Information Technology at Miami-Dade County Public Schools. “In the end, we decided to invest in Sophos based on its exceptional level of service and expertise; simplified management capabilities; and proactive, multi-tier protection across our entire district.”

“We are pleased to have been selected by one of the most widely recognized school districts in the United States to provide comprehensive security at the endpoint and gateway,” said Mark Hatton, president of Boston-based, Sophos. “Sophos is committed to providing flexible, reliable and centrally managed solutions that are consistent with the district's needs."
