Cloud Optix Tech Specs

Cloud Optix delivers the continuous analysis and visibility organizations need to detect, respond, and prevent security and compliance gaps that leave them exposed. This provides a single view of security posture across AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, Kubernetes, and Infrastructure-as-Code environments.

Extending Cloud Workload Protection with CSPM

Sophos Intercept X Advanced for Server protects server instances running in the cloud from the latest threats, and by including Cloud Optix Standard, organizations will extend security to visibility of those instances, containers, serverless and more, while identifying vulnerabilities to optimize security posture.
