Advanced Intelligence Threat Detection – The cutting edge AI uses deep analysis to evaluate files to identify attacks that have never been seen before, replacing traditional signature methods that wouldn’t pick up on new malicious techniques. The government, banks and businesses around the world use this level of protection.
Real-Time Threat Prevention – Sophos goes above and beyond traditional antivirus by actively seeking out suspicious behaviour and activity. This alongside 24/7 real-time threat intelligence ensures that you are protected from all of the latest cybercrime.
Advanced Ransomware Security – Personal ransomware attacks can slip by traditional web filters/antivirus softwares and encrypt your files and photos. This will be followed by a demand for you to to pay a ransom in return for the decryption key. Sophos is vigilant in protecting your personal data, if anything is detected it will be blocked and the data will be rollbacked to a pre-tampered state.
To get started with Sophos endpoint protection, an administrator installs the software on a server for management purposes and then installs it on every included endpoint.
Some examples of the features that Sophos includes (but are not limited to) are: anti-phishing, advanced real-time threat prevention, banking protection and malware removal.
