Intercept X Endpoint Features


Web Protection

Intercept X blocks access to phishing and malicious sites by analyzing files, web pages, and IP addresses. It is powered by threat intelligence from SophosLabs and real-time intelligence from the Sophos MDR team.



Straight out of the box, Intercept X builds on the basic protection available in Microsoft Windows, adding no fewer than 60 proprietary, pre-configured, and tuned exploit mitigations. Intercept X protects against fileless attacks and zero-day exploits by stopping the techniques used throughout the attack chain.


Threat Exposure Reduction

Intercept X provides web protection and filtering, application control, and peripheral control, reducing your attack surface and blocking common attack vectors.


Account Health Check

Poorly configured policy settings, exclusions, and other factors can compromise your security posture. The Account Health Check identifies security posture drift and high-risk misconfigurations, enabling administrators to remediate issues with one click.


Adaptive Attack Protection

Adaptive Attack Protection dynamically enables heightened defenses on an endpoint when a "hands-on-keyboard" attack is detected. This prevents an attacker from taking further actions by minimizing the attack surface and disrupting and containing the attack, buying valuable time to respond. Watch the Adaptive Attack Protection video.


Critical Attack Warning

A Critical Attack Warning alerts you if adversary activity is detected across multiple endpoints or servers. It alerts all administrators in Sophos Central, informing you of the situation and providing attack details. You can respond using Sophos XDR, seek assistance from your partner, or ask the Sophos Incident Response team for help.

Ransomware file protection, automatic file recovery, and behavioral analysis to stop ransomware and boot record attacks


Anti-Ransomware screenshot

Today’s ransomware attacks often combine multiple advanced techniques with real-time hacking. To minimize your risk of falling victim you need advanced protection that monitors and secures the whole attack chain. Sophos Intercept X gives you advanced protection technologies that disrupt the whole attack chain including deep learning that predictively prevents attacks and CryptoGuard which rolls back the unauthorized encryption of files in seconds.

Deep Learning Technology

Artificial intelligence built into Intercept X that detects both known and unknown malware without relying on signatures

Deep Learning Technology

deep learning

By integrating deep learning, an advanced form of machine learning, Intercept X is changing endpoint security from a reactive to a predictive approach to protect against both known and never-seen-before threats. While many products claim to use machine learning, not all machine learning is created equally. Deep learning has consistently outperformed other machine learning models for malware detection.

Exploit Prevention

Deny attackers by blocking the exploits and techniques used to distribute malware, steal credentials, and escape detection

Exploit Prevention


Exploit prevention stops the techniques used in file-less, malware-less, and exploit-based attacks. While there are millions of pieces of malware in existence, and thousands of software vulnerabilities waiting to be exploited, there are only handful of exploit techniques attackers rely on as part of the attack chain – and by taking away the key tools hackers love to use, Intercept X stops zero-day attacks before they can get started.

Active Adversary Mitigations

Active adversary mitigation prevents persistence on machines, credential theft protection, and malicious traffic detection

Active Adversary Mitigations


Intercept X utilizes a range of techniques, including credential theft prevention, code cave utilization detection, and APC protection that attackers use to gain a presence and remain undetected on victim networks. As attackers have increasingly focused on techniques beyond malware in order to move around systems and networks as a legitimate user, Intercept X detects and prevents this behavior in order to prevent attackers from completing their mission.

Deep learning makes Intercept X smarter, more scalable, and more effective against never-seen-before threats. Intercept X leverages deep learning to outperform endpoint security solutions that use traditional machine learning or signature-based detection alone.


Intercept X includes CryptoGuard advanced anti-ransomware technology that stops new variants and never-before-seen ransomware. CryptoGuard inspects the contents of files to detect encryption and ransomware running on your network. Files encrypted by ransomware will automatically roll back to a safe state, irrespective of size or file type, minimizing the impact on business productivity.
