Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)

The first EDR designed for security analysts and IT administrators

Try It on Your EndpointsTry It on Your Servers



Built for IT Security Operations and Threat Hunting

Leverage endpoint, server, firewall and other data sources



Add Expertise Not Headcount

30 days of cloud storage and 90 days on-disk data retention



EDR Starts With the Strongest Protection

Invest in a security ecosystem

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:

  • Re-boot 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.

    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.

    Unknown 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

    Extended Detection and Response (XDR)

    Sophos 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
