next Generation Anti-Exploit, Anti-Ransomware and Root Cause Analysis.

Today’s cyber-criminals are becoming increasingly more efficient and sophisticated and so next-generation attacks call for next-generation solutions. We recommend using Sophos Intercept X, a completely new approach to endpoint security if your company is looking to protect its data from malicious attacks and malware from hackers.

The days of straightforward file scanning are long gone. Now, not only do you have to prevent threats from reaching your devices but ideally you want to stop them before they create havoc, detect them if they are in your system and not just clean up any malware but analyse it and undo any damage that it may have caused.

Your company operates a number of laptops, tablets, mobile phones and other wireless devices which are all connected to your corporate network. These ‘endpoints’ create potential attack pathways for security threats to gain entrance and so by deploying the proven endpoint security software you will enhance your protection levels for these devices.

Sophos Intercept X uses multiple layers of technology, allowing us to help you to create your own tailored endpoint security solution which can be installed alongside any existing security software to enhance the protection and detection of malicious activity on your data even further. It works by preventing threats from reaching your devices; stopping them before they run; detecting them if they have bypassed preventative methods and finally analysing and undoing everything it does to your endpoints.

Sophos Intercept X combines four critical next-generation security components and is easily managed by Net Technical on your behalf via the Sophos Central Admin console:

Signatureless Threat and Exploit Detection: Anti-malware and anti-hacker defence that blocks zero-day, unknown and memory resident attacks and threat variants without the need for file scanning.

CryptoGuard: Anti-ransomware innovation that identifies and intercepts malicious encryption activity, blocks ransomware before it can lock and cripple systems and can roll back maliciously encrypted files to their pre-attack state.

Root Cause Analytics: A comprehensive visual analysis of attack events that shows where the attack came in, what it affected, where it may have stopped and recommended actions to prevent a similar attack in the future.

Sophos Clean: Powerful utility that hunts for and removes any trace of spyware and deeply embedded, lingering malware
