I was collared by Kim the other day and she told me she had some news that all British readers of this blog might be interested in.
Kim is one of the lovely crowd of people from upstairs who run the beta programs for upcoming versions of Sophos products and various exciting new technologies we are working on.
It turns out that in the next few weeks she is hosting a couple of open-days here at Sophos's HQ outside Oxford, to gain feedback on the new versions of our Sophos Enterprise Console and integrated Network Access Control solutions.
Guests will be involved in discussions about the forthcoming product features and will be invited to give us feedback as to the usability of the new versions.
If that didn't sound like fun enough then rest assured that you'll also get a free lunch at our swanky lakeside staff restaurant (occasionally a swan or a heron is spotted - but they're not on the menu) and a rare and exclusive tour of SophosLabs, where our experts analyse the latest malware and spam campaigns.
So, what are you waiting for? You can tell your boss that you're doing some serious work in improving the software you use to protect your network and you get a tour of our labs and you get a free lunch! Maybe Kim will throw in some other goodies too, I don't know..
The Sophos Enterprise Console workshop will be on the 25th of September and the NAC workshop on the 2nd of October 2008.
Spaces are limited - so if you're interested just fill in this form and Kim will contact you with further details.
