What Are You Missing?

How do you know if your endpoint protection is actually working? Your security could have missed a virus and be unaware that you’re under attack. With Sophos Clean you can do an additional scan, find security breaches, and get rid of them.

Next-Gen Awareness

Sophos Clean is designed to discover viruses, trojans, rootkits, spyware, and other malware on up-to-date and fully-protected computers. This is next-generation technology to fight against next-generation malware.

No Installation Required

Sophos Clean is a signatureless, on-demand malware scanner that's just 11 MB and does not need to be installed. You can run it from a USB flash drive, a cd/dvd, or from network attached storage, which is nice if malware is manipulating the installed antivirus software and its updates.

How Does It Work?

Second Opinion Scan

This isn’t your average virus cleanup tool. Instead of relying on signatures, Sophos Clean gathers actionable intelligence and examines the collected information. This signatureless approach allows the scanner to discover which files act and look like malware.

Discovery

It’s designed to discover viruses, trojans, rootkits, spyware and other malware on up-to-date and fully protected computers. It searches for early-life and next-generation malware; the kind of malware that doesn't yet have a detection signature.

Fix It

Sophos Clean removes persistent threats from within the operating system and replaces infected Windows resources with the original, safe versions. Reinfection attempts are proactively blocked until threat remediation is completed.
Instead of searching for typical static malware attributes, Sophos Clean looks for unethical behaviors. It's much harder for malware authors to radically change the manipulative behavior of their malware than it is to change its static properties. By combining forensic, behavior, and collective intelligence, Sophos Clean is the single most effective solution to combat new and resilient malware.

Best of Both Worlds

Reliable, Zero-Day Malware Coverage

Sophos Clean works as a standalone, on-demand malware scanner. Use it alongside your existing antivirus to catch next-generation malware that has no immediate detection signature.
