Making the move: Symantec to Sophos

March 9th, 2020 Posted by Uncategorized 0 thoughts on “Making the move: Symantec to Sophos”

As a Cage Data customer, you probably know that we’ve run Symantec’s antivirus product for years. It’s been a great product as the cyber security landscape has been plagued by ever changing strategies employed by the people that create viruses and vulnerabilities that have even effected the way we think about processor chips.

As the cyber security landscape has changed, we’ve been watching the vendors who design software and hardware to protect their customers. Today we’re excited to announce that we’ve partnered with Sophos! Sophos’ cloud-based platform, Sophos Central, brings together their complete suite of products into a single platform which leverages Synchronized Security to make Intercept X, their endpoint security software, and their XG Firewall products work together.

Not only does Sophos offer security for your computers, servers and networks, but with Phish Threat, Cage Data offers customers phishing awareness training so that your employees know how to detect a malicious email. Phishing is the number 1 source of malicious attacks against businesses today, and the number 1 prevention method for these attacks is training to know what they look like. With Phish Threat, Cage Data assembles and sends out monthly simulated phishing attacks with follow-up training for anyone who clicks the links on the attack.

We will be transitioning all clients currently using Symantec Endpoint Protection over to Sophos Intercept X for both workstations and servers over the next 90 days.

If you have any questions or want to learn more about adopting Sophos’ Synchronized Security platform in your company, please reach out to us.

Skeptics in the Church of Data, Pt. 4: Reformation

This is the fourth part in a series on shifting our thoughts about Monitoring. All of this came from a talk I gave at GalaxZ’17 in Austin, TX earlier this year. You can find part one, “Ein Minuten Bitte”, part 2, “Empathetic Monitoring”, and part 3, “New Partners” from their respective links. But if you’re ready to read on, we’ll talk about…


That’s a heavy word. But I want to be clear about how much work goes into this process. There’s risk involved here, too. Change, being introduced the wrong way, can cause schism instead of reform. You’ll notice in the 16th century the Protestant Reformation didn’t create a new and improved Roman Catholic Church, but rather a whole assortment of new Protestant sects from Lutheran to Baptist to Pentecostal.


Christmas Time is Here

December 21st, 2016 Posted by Uncategorized 0 thoughts on “Christmas Time is Here”

It seems to happen every year. You tell yourself, this year I’m not going to let it happen, but then it happens. As the end of the year approaches and we all talk about how the stores are putting up Christmas decorations earlier and earlier. Right after Halloween, or even before Halloween, we see Christmas trees showing up in all of the large chain stores. We say, “it’s too soon”. Then we let the Holiday do what they do best, creep right up behind us and scare the stuffing out of us because, “AHHH, Christmas is NEXT WEEK”.


Happy Thanksgiving!

November 23rd, 2016 Posted by Uncategorized 0 thoughts on “Happy Thanksgiving!”

Many of us have our grade school memories of Thanksgiving, it’s all about Native Americans and Pilgrims sitting around a big table; the 1621 Plymouth colonists celebrated the first Thanksgiving with the Wampanoag Tribe. This celebration organized by Governor William Bradford lasted three days and included harvest from the colonist “fowling mission” and five deer provided by the colonist new native allies.
