Built for IT security operations and threat hunting

Maintain IT security operations hygiene and hunt down stealthy threats.

Add expertise, not headcount

Built-in expertise to help you answer the tough questions about security incidents.

EDR starts with the strongest protection

Sophos stops breaches before they start by consolidating EDR with the industry’s best protection.

Ask any question about what has happened in the past – and what is happening now.

Sophos EDR gives you the tools to ask detailed questions when hunting down threats and strengthening your IT security operations posture.

You get access to powerful, out-of-the-box, customizable SQL queries that access up to 90 days of endpoint and server data, giving you the information you need to make informed decisions.

Example questions include:

  • Why is a machine running slowly? Is it pending a reboot?
  • Which devices have known vulnerabilities, unknown services, or unauthorized browser extensions?
  • Are there programs running on the machine that should be removed?
  • Are processes trying to make a network connection on non-standard ports?
  • Have any processes had files or registry keys modified recently?

Remotely Respond With Precision

With Intercept X, it is easy to take action even if the device requiring attention is not physically present. From the same cloud management console, you can remotely access devices in order to perform further investigation, install and uninstall software, or remediate any additional issues.

Using a command line tool you can:

  • Reboot devices
  • Terminate active processes
  • Run scripts or programs
  • Edit configuration files
  • Install/uninstall software
  • Run forensic tools

Add Expertise, Not Headcount

Investigating suspicious activity can be complex and time intensive. Other EDR tools often require dedicated headcount or their own internal security operations center (SOC). Sophos makes EDR simple to use without sacrificing the ability to perform powerful analysis.

Automated threat identification

  • Automatically identify suspicious activity with groundbreaking SophosLabs machine learning
  • Prioritized list of threat indicators shows you where to focus
  • Quickly search for potential threats across your endpoints and servers

Live Discover

  • Ask detailed questions to hunt threats and uncover IT operations issues
  • Out-of-the-box, fully customizable SQL queries
  • Up to 90 days fast access to current and historical on-disk data

Live Response

  • Respond with precision using a command line tool
  • Remotely access devices to perform further investigation, install and uninstall software, or remediate any additional issues

AI Driven

  • Automated expertise to replicate the roles of hard-to-find security analysts
  • On-demand threat intelligence curated by SophosLabs
  • Reverse engineer files with machine learning-based malware analysis

EDR That's Built on the Strongest Protection

Other EDR tools are weak at protection. These tools force users to waste time on incidents that should have been stopped in the first place. Sophos takes a different approach to EDR. We combine EDR with the industry’s best endpoint and server protection. Together, they block the vast majority of threats before they need manual investigation. This leads to a lighter workload and less noise, so you can focus on the greatest potential threats.


Stop unknown threats

Deep learning technology is an advanced form of machine learning, detecting malware even when it has never been seen before


Don’t get held for ransom

Anti-ransomware protection stops ransomware from encrypting your files and rolls them back to a safe state


Block exploits

Exploit techniques are commonly used to break into organizations. Intercept X uses exploit prevention to stop these dangerous attacks


Deny hackers

Stop real-world hacking techniques used for credential harvesting, lateral movement, and privilege escalation

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.

Multi-platform, Multi-OS Support

Sophos EDR gives you the tools you need for advanced threat hunting and IT security operations hygiene. Inspect your endpoints and servers, both on-premises and in the cloud, across Windows, MacOS, and Linux operating systems.

As part of Intercept X and Intercept X for Server, you also get access to advanced protection against the latest, never-seen-before threats, ransomware, and file-less, memory-based attacks.
