Introducing the Refreshed Sophos Partner Program Guide

Partner Program

The Sophos Partner Program guide is bringing together all of our channel routes to market into one document

Defending an organization against rapidly evolving, increasingly complex and elusive cyberthreats is a considerable challenge. In today’s volatile climate, going it alone is just not an option. There’s a real need for an end-to-end cybersecurity approach and a strong partner to navigate this complex environment.

Delivering Superior Cybersecurity Outcomes

We’re enabling you to become the trusted security advisor for your customers and take a whatever-works-best-for-you approach when it comes to managing your customers’ security operations. You can establish your own threat hunting and incident response team, rely on our expert teams to augment your offering or combine both approaches so you can take the lead during the week, and we’ll take over after hours.

Unwavering Channel Support with Partner-First Commitment

At Sophos, it has been a long-term strategic priority to see the needs of our partners as number one. We take great pride in our commitment to “Partner First, Partner Best.”

At Sophos, we provide you — and your customers — with unrivaled, real-world cyber defenses to stop more threats faster. And we do so with a remarkable return on investment for partners and customers alike. As a Sophos Partner, you’ll have extensive opportunities to gain even more of your customers’ security budget while they enjoy the same level of cybersecurity readiness as many of the largest, most sophisticated organizations worldwide.

Not only are we committed to providing your customers with the ultimate protection against modern threats using our award-winning next-gen cybersecurity solutions, but we’re also building our products and processes with our partners in mind. From development, operations, sales, marketing, to support – the Sophos team is dedicated to fueling your success with the tools and know-how to drive bottom-line revenue for your organization.

Refreshed Partner Program Guide

The needs of our partner ecosystem is transforming and our mission to provide cybersecurity-as-a-service that works as a revenue driver for you, our partners, has led us to consolidate our partner offerings into one global partner program guide that covers managed service providers (MSPs), cloud security providers (CSPs) and next-gen resellers. The program now also calls out the monthly recurring revenue (MRR) required for MSP partners to reach a certain partner tier. When multiplied by 18, the MRR is the exact equivalent to the annual revenue requirements. The MRR listed (and the 18x multiplier) applies to partners with only MSP Flex billings to reach the billings threshold for each program level.

Currency conversion rates used to calculate program level attainment have been updated. The program guide now also offers a quick Getting Starting Checklist, which helps you navigate our program to find the right specializations and accreditations that support your business model. Numerous links to channel services, resources, and support will help you make the most of your partnership.

While the overall architecture of the program benefits and requirements stays the same, the new program guide marks a fundamental shift in the way we present our channel offerings and consolidates what’s been previously available into one, global document.

As a Sophos partner, you can access the new Sophos Partner Program guide on the Sophos Partner Portal (login required).
