Intercept X Endpoint Features

Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)

Sophos Intercept X Advanced with XDR integrates powerful endpoint detection and response (EDR) with the industry’s top-rated endpoint protection. Built for both IT security operations and threat hunting, Intercept X detects and investigates suspicious activity with AI-driven analysis. Unlike other EDR tools, it adds expertise, not headcount by replicating the skills of hard-to-find analysts.

Anti-Ransomware

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

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

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.

Managed Threat Response

Sophos Managed Threat Response (MTR) provides 24/7 threat hunting, detection, and response capabilities delivered by an expert team as a fully-managed service. Sophos MTR fuses machine learning technology and expert analysis for improved threat hunting and detection, deeper investigation of alerts, and targeted actions to eliminate threats with speed and precision. Unlike other services, the Sophos MTR team goes beyond simply notifying you of attacks or suspicious behaviors, and takes targeted actions on your behalf to neutralize even the most sophisticated and complex threats.

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.

Extended Detection and Response (XDR)

Sophos Intercept X Advanced with XDR integrates network, email, cloud*, and mobile* data sources on top of endpoint and server information, giving you an even broader of your organization’s cybersecurity posture. With 30 days of cloud storage included you can look back in time to understand how an attempted breach began and conduct real-time investigations.

Central Management

Sophos Central is the cloud-based management platform for all Sophos solutions. You can investigate potential threats, create and deploy policies, manage your estate, see what is installed where and more, all from the same unified console.

Synchronized Security

Sophos solutions work better together. For example, Intercept X and Sophos Firewall will coordinate to identify, isolate and cleanup devices that have been compromised. When the threat is neutralized and there is no risk of lateral movement, network connectivity is restored. It all happens automatically with no admin intervention required.

Harness the Power of a Deep Learning Neural Network

Achieve unmatched endpoint threat prevention. Intercept X uses deep learning, an advanced form of machine learning to detect both known and unknown malware without relying on signatures.

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.

Machine learning models identify malicious activity on your endpoints.

Stop Ransomware in Its Tracks

Block ransomware attacks before they wreak havoc on your organization. Intercept X includes anti-ransomware technology that detects malicious encryption processes and shuts them down before they can spread across your network. It prevents both file-based and master boot record ransomware.

Any files that were encrypted are rolled back to a safe state, meaning your employees can continue working uninterrupted, with minimal impact to business continuity. You get detailed post-cleanup information, so you can see where the threat got in, what it touched, and when it was blocked.

Intelligent Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)

The first EDR designed for security analysts and IT administrators

Intercept X Advanced with XDR allows you to ask any question about what has happened in the past, and what is happening now on your endpoints. Hunt threats to detect active adversaries, or leverage for IT operations to maintain IT security hygiene. When an issue is found remotely respond with precision. By starting with the strongest protection, Intercept X stops breaches before they start. It cuts down the number of items to investigate and saves you time.

  • The strongest protection combined with powerful EDR
  • Add expertise, not headcount
  • Built for IT operations and threat hunting

Extended Detection and Response (XDR)

Intercept X Advanced with XDR goes beyond the endpoint, pulling in rich network, email, cloud* and mobile* data sources to give you an even broader picture of your cybersecurity posture. You can quickly shift from a holistic view down into granular detail. For example:

  • Cross reference indicators of comprise from multiple data sources to quickly identify, pinpoint and neutralize a threat
  • Use ATP and IPS events from the firewall to investigate suspect hosts and identify unprotected devices across your estate
  • Understand office network issues and which application is causing them
  • Identify unmanaged, guest and IoT devices across your organization’s environment

Managed Threat Response

  • Threat Hunting - Proactive 24/7 hunting by our elite team of threat analysts. Determine the potential impact and context of threats to your business.
  • Response - Initiates actions to remotely disrupt, contain, and neutralize threats on your behalf to stop even the most sophisticated threats
  • Continuous Improvement - Get actionable advice for addressing the root cause of recurring incidents to stop them for occurring again
