SophosLabs is the company's global network of threat analysis centers.
Unlike other security companies, Sophos does not produce anti-virus and anti-spam solutions for home users, but instead has always focused on the business market.
In 2006, Steve Munford was named CEO of Sophos, and Hruska and Lammer announced they would remain as co-founders and members of the board of directors. Munford was the president of ActiveState prior to its acquisition by Sophos in 2003, and from 2003 to 2005 was president of Sophos's North American operations. In 2005, he became chief operating officer, responsible for the day-to-day running of the company and its senior management team. Munford holds a Bachelor's degree in economics from the University of Western Ontario, and an MBA from Queen's University.
In 2008, Sophos announced its intent to acquire Utimaco Safeware AG.
From September 2003 to February 2006, Sophos served as the parent company of ActiveState, a developer of programming tools for dynamic programming languages. In February 2006, ActiveState became an independent company when it was sold to Vancouver-based venture capitalist firm Pender Financial.
Sophos's anti-virus engine and identities are now packaged into Webroot Spy Sweeper with Anti-Virus.
