BSM chooses Sophos Central to enhance IT security and minimize operation overheads

Business Challenge

BSM needs enhanced endpoint security protection with a solution that meets group IT policy for light IT. The company manages many remote locations lacking local security skills to support a demanding 24/7 global environment. Moreover, the industry’s regulations are becoming harder to meet, and customers are setting even higher demands on cybersecurity legislations. GDPR compliance has created extra requirements on cybersecurity awareness and the rise of ransomware created an urgent situation for requiring a more modern approach on cybersecurity.

The technical solution

BSM implemented a Sophos Central Enterprise Dashboard solution with 12 sub-estates. Personnel with expertise in security have super admin roles, while they have local generalist IT staff for the sub-estates with helpdesk role. Policies are set up centrally from corporate IT and they can offer a unified security experience to the remote locations. Corporate IT is responsible for monitoring and providing training to local resources. The combination of Sophos Endpoint Antivirus with Intercept X
