(Bloomberg) — In a world where protecting against cyber crime is high on most big business agendas, a U.K. provider of IT security to clients as small as dentists and neighborhood stores is outpacing the best that Silicon Valley has to offer.

Sophos Group Plc shares have more than doubled in 2017, beating every other stock in the Nasdaq CEA Cybersecurity Index, including larger California-based peers such as Symantec Corp. and Palo Alto Networks Inc.

HUNTING VALLEY, Ohio — Violation of civil stalking protection order, harassing communications, menacing by stalking; Cedar Road: A Beavercreek man, 69, was indicted this month on charges that he continued to harass his former doctor the day after a judge extended a civil stalking protection order for another five years.
