Evolve: embracing technological change to deal with modern threats
In the fast-moving world of IT security, organisations must adapt to technological change or they will become increasingly vulnerable to cybercrime and could be left behind by their competitors. In almost four decades of business, Datapac has had to continually adapt to technology evolution to meet the changing needs of our customers.
A key element of our technology strategy is our close-knit and successful partnerships with global vendors, such as Sophos, a world leader in cybersecurity which provides solutions to nearly 400,000 organisations in more than 150 countries. Datapac was recently awarded Sophos Irish Partner of the Year 2019 – the fifth time it has secured the prestigious award.
Datapac was recognised for our commitment to offering customers award-winning, next-generation network and endpoint protection. Datapac combines Sophos’ technologies with our local knowledge and expertise to ensure Irish businesses are well protected and equipped to tackle cybercrime. There is no pause in the pace of development from the Sophos research team and Datapac is bringing several of these new and enhanced security solutions to the Irish market. Here’s three of the latest innovations from Sophos now being deployed by Datapac to some of Ireland’s leading organisations.
For many years, Sophos has been an IT security leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for both endpoint protection and unified threat management (UTM). This makes it uniquely positioned to lead the way in the emerging area of Synchronised Security – which integrates endpoint and network security products to deliver a more coordinated defence for your organisation.
As more businesses adopt a hybrid cloud environment – using both private and public cloud – the need for a unified cloud security solution grows. Responsibility for securing the cloud can be complex, lying somewhere between the public cloud provider and the business itself. Sophos Cloud Optix combines the power of AI and automation to simplify cloud security through one easy-to-use interface.
Intelligent Endpoint Detection and Response
When it comes to data breaches, prevention is the best cure. Sophos’ endpoint detection and response (EDR) tools are designed to stop threats before they can ever cause damage. Sophos Intercept X has the ability to automatically detect, investigate and respond to potential security threats on an organisation’s network – enabling staff to focus on the business rather than chasing an overwhelming volume of security alerts.
Holding the highest levels of accreditation for solution architecture and managed services ensures our customers enjoy elevated levels of proactive support and protection. This latest high-profile award for Datapac is fantastic and deserved recognition for our team’s capabilities, dedication and unrivalled expertise in Ireland.
The fast-paced nature of technological evolution makes it essential that your security partner is working with global innovators to bring solutions to market that can cater for the ever-increasing volume and sophistication of cyber threats. Over the years at Datapac, we have honed and enhanced our approach to continue to integrate the most innovative technologies and capabilities into the architecture of our security solutions. Our access to world-class security technologies and deep knowledge of the threat security landscape in Ireland, distinguishes Datapac in the market and greatly contributes to the success of our long-term partner and customer relationships.
Our latest award from Sophos demonstrates that Datapac is best placed to advise Irish organisations on the suitability of these solutions for their business as we are leading the way for the adoption and deployment of these next generation capabilities.

“The value of dealing with an HP Gold partner in this process can’t be underestimated. Datapac provide us with a local touch and can cover the full range of our IT requirements, but when there is a specific technical requirement like this, they can bring the specialist technical resources of HP to the table. HP and Datapac had a thorough discussion with us around our requirement - and had really done their homework - and then were able to provide us with a very highly specified test platform for us to prove the application on before we committed to purchase.”
Datapac understands our needs and requirements and has the expertise and experience to follow through on all our requests. Our constant need to reduce costs has been assisted by Datapac's ability to suggest alternative solutions and methods whilst improving both efficiency and productivity. Our partnership with Datapac is akin to having an IT department on site that we simply could not provide ourselves.
