Ruth Lawton, Foursys, Education Account Manager, said: “The agreement that Sophos and Eduserv has struck up can only be good news for Colleges and Universities. Foursys, being one of the few privileged partners to be able to offer Eduserv pricing, has had real success in allowing our customers to renew and upgrade while demonstrating cost savings and still provide the best protection for their students and network.”
