Organizations of all types require simple solutions to protect their people and information from increasingly damaging threats,” said John Shaw, vice president end user security products at Sophos. “Sophos Mobile Control is a complete solution for confidently protecting the mobile workforce and classroom; we’re delighted to deliver it to the market.”
