Sophos Intercept X employs a comprehensive defense-in-depth approach to endpoint protection, rather than simply relying on one primary security technique. This is the “the power of the plus” – a combination of leading foundational and modern techniques.
Modern techniques include deep learning malware detection, exploit prevention, and anti-ransomware specific features. Foundational techniques include signature-based malware detection, behavior analysis, malicious traffic detection, device control, application control, web filtering, data loss prevention, and more.
The artificial intelligence built into Intercept X is a deep learning neural network, an
advanced form of machine learning that detects both known and unknown malware
without relying on signatures.
Proven Ransomware Protection
Intercept X utilizes behavioral analysis to stop never-before-seen ransomware and
boot-record attacks, making it the most advanced anti-ransomware technology
Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)
Sophos Intercept X Advanced is the first EDR solution designed for IT administrators and security analysts to solve IT operations and threat hunting use cases. It allows you to ask any question about what has happened in the past, and what is happening now on your endpoints. When an issue is found remotely respond with precision.
Managed Threat Response (MTR)
24/7 threat hunting, detection and response delivered by a team of Sophos experts as a fully managed service.
Simplify Management and Deployment
Managing your security from Sophos Central means you no longer have to install or deploy servers to secure your endpoints. Sophos Central provides default policies and recommended configurations to ensure that you get the most effective protection from day one.
