All our support staff are now fully-equipped with the essential knowledge, expertise and technical skills needed to provide industry leading Sophos security solutions that best meet our clients’ individual business needs, as well as supplying, implementing and supporting the software itself.

It’s all part of our overall aim to provide the best possible IT support solutions for our clients.’
Next Steps with Sophos
We’re now working towards becoming a Sophos Certified Solution Provider. This will enable us to specialise further in Sophos products and provide consultancy and professional services to our clients, on top of supplying, installing and supporting their complete range of security solutions.
To help us achieve this next step, Air-IT’s Senior Field Engineer, James Hissitt, will be undertaking three days’ intensive training on unified threat management (UTM) at the Sophos HQ in Oxford. Jamie will also be sitting a number of exams, over the coming months, to become a fully qualified Sophos Certified Engineer and expert in the Sophos security range.
