Sophos has appointed Joe Levy as chief technology officer (CTO), in a move the security vendor hopes will further strengthen its focus innovation both locally, and on a global scale.

Recognised as a thought leader in IT security, Levy will lead the company’s technology strategy worldwide, driving product vision and innovation following more than 20 years of leadership and development expertise focused on information security.

“Sophos is focused on making comprehensive, enterprise-grade security simple,” says Kris Hagerman, CEO, Sophos.

“Joe shares our vision that the next generation of security solutions will require disruptive innovation both in capabilities and in usability.

“Throughout his career, Joe has demonstrated his ability to think differently and drive success, and we are very pleased to welcome him to our senior management team.

“His technical expertise and vision will be critical as we build new solutions to meet the growing demands of our customers.”

Prior to Sophos, Levy was CTO for Blue Coat Systems following the company’s May 2013 acquisition of security analytics pioneer Solera Networks, where he had served as CTO since 2008.

Prior to Solera, Levy was CTO of SonicWALL (acquired by Dell), where he led research and development teams with concentrations in the areas of next-generation firewalls, deep packet inspection, cryptography, and secure remote access.

“I’m very excited to join the talented team at Sophos,” Levy adds.

“As a global leader in endpoint, network, and data security, and with a powerful cloud security platform, Sophos has all the technology needed to deliver the complete security solution that customers require. This is a great time to become part of the Sophos team.”
