Sophos Announces Joe Levy as New CEO

Sophos has officially appointed Joe Levy as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Levy, who has been serving as acting CEO since February 15, has also appointed Jim Dildine as the new Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and a member of his senior management team to support his strategic vision for the company.

With nearly three decades of experience in cybersecurity innovation and leadership, Levy has played a pivotal role in transforming Sophos over his nine-year tenure. Under his guidance, Sophos evolved from a product-focused company to a global cybersecurity powerhouse. This transformation included the development of an incident response team and a Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service that now protects over 21,000 organizations worldwide.

Levy’s initiatives also led to the creation of SophosAI and Sophos X-Ops, an operational threat intelligence unit comprising more than 500 cybersecurity experts. These teams enhance Sophos’ solutions with real-time and historical attack data, improving their effectiveness in defending against cyber threats.

Levy’s extensive experience with managed security providers (MSPs) and the channel dates back to his career beginnings in the mid-1990s as a cybersecurity practitioner and product innovator at a value-added reseller. As CEO, Levy aims to expand Sophos’ customer base in the midmarket sector, which includes nearly 600,000 clients and generates over $1.2 billion in annual revenue.
