Sophos to retain NZ office

Security vendor Sophos will retain a New Zealand office and one staffer here, despite a global round of redundancies that will see 80 jobs go.

Sophos Asia-Pacific managing director Rob Forsyth says the company’s Auckland office will be retained, with a staff of one, a channel-focused employee.

However, a staffer in a different role resigned recently, and that role won’t be replaced during the company’s current financial year, which ends next April, Forsyth says.

Country lead Shirley Wigley left to join distributor Chillisoft recently.

While the company is still achieving year-on-year growth, some internal targets have not been met, “so we have modified our cost base”, he says.

New Zealand “continues to be a good product market for us”, he says.

Most of the 80 job losses will be in the US, with a Sophos facility in Ohio to be closed.
