Sophos buys cloudy email security outfit Reflexion Networks

Om nom nom. It's buyout season alright

Sophos has acquired cloud-based email security firm Reflexion Networks. Financial terms of the deal, announced on Tuesday, were undisclosed.

Reflexion markets archiving, email encryption and business continuity services. Reflexion Total Control blocks spam and viruses before they ever get to the corporate network.

Archiving, discovery, and recovery services allow fast search and retrieval capabilities, while encryption services ensure that email communications are only readable by intended recipients.

Sophos said by purchasing the firm it will be able to add cloud-based email security to Sophos Cloud, the security firm's integrated cloud-based management console.

Reflexion Networks has over 17,000 customers around the world. One of its main channels is selling to mid-sized businesses through managed service providers (MSPs). More than 2,000 MSPs sell its cloud services every month.

"Reflexion is a great fit for Sophos because, like us, their sales model is 100 per cent channel," added Kendra Krause, vice president of global channels, sales for Sophos. ®
