Discover Sophos Tour

Thank you to those who attended! We hope you enjoyed the day!

The Discover Sophos Tour took place on 24th September 2015, at Brockholes Nature Reserve, Preston and the venue was transformed into a mountainous five peak challenge. Sophos brought the Sophos Discovery Zone, complete with their "Basecamp" trailer, discover security education sessions and mountain games.


Guests were some of the first in the country to get a glance at Project Copernicus Beta - a revolution in firewalls. They found out how it introduces a number of important innovations. The all-new Sophos Firewall OS combines the best of both Sophos UTM and Cyberoam next-generation firewall technology. Sophos experts provided guests with industry insights and product knowledge.

I have been very impressed with Virtue right from our very first meeting. They demonstrated an understanding of our requirements and budget from the outset.
