With WSI’s experience in the local market, excellent technical support group, aggressive sales and marketing, and its professional and experienced management team, we believe it will play a key role in developing our broader channel ecosystem strategy,” said Sumit Bansal, managing director, ASEAN, Sophos.

“Sophos is the perfect security partner to supplement our existing product line-up. Sophos offers best-in-class endpoint solutions as well as firewall products for organizations of all sizes, and we’re excited to offer existing WSI customers the opportunity to cross-sell and strengthen their IT positioning with market-leading security offerings from Sophos,” said Oliver Co, special assistant to the president, WSI.
