We are excited for the upcoming launch of Sophos Intercept X, a next generation of endpoint protection for today’s threats. Intercept X is Sophos’ new signatureless anti-exploit, anti-ransomware, and anti-hacker technology that includes enhanced reporting and visibility (root-cause analytics) as well as advanced malware cleanup. All of this managed from Sophos Central.
Ransomware has been a hot topic in the Cyber Security world for several years now, costing businesses and organizations hundreds of millions every year. With the release of Sophos Intercept X, you can stop Ransomware right in its tracks. As part of Intercept X, Ransomware protection (Cryptoguard) is built in to stop Ransomware attacks as soon as they are detected and roll back any files to their original state if them become encrypted.
Along with Cryptoguard, Intercept X also has many other exciting and new technologies that include anti-exploit technology that blocks zero-day threats without needing to scan files or the need of signatures/definitions the way it was traditionally done. Sophos Intercept X also includes deep-cleaning technology, which can track down spyware that traditional Anti-Virus misses and cleans up deeply embedded malware to make remediation extremely simple. With all this, Sophos has added forensic reporting that traces attacks back to their origin and pinpoints addition infection points while cleaning up the malware and providing guidance for strengthening your organizations security posture.
Whether you’re a business or school, Sophos Intercept X is a must have add-on to your current Anti-Virus solution. Regardless of whether you are a Sophos Endpoint customer already, or use a 3rd party Anti-Virus solution, Sophos Intercept X can be installed alongside existing endpoint protection solutions to give you ultimate protection – all with minimal impact to system performance. Watch the video below to get a first hand look at Intercept X’s Cryptoguard technology in action.
