Sophos Launches Intercept X for Mobile

Experts agree. Intercept X Advanced consistently rates at the top of independent tests and analyst reports for endpoint protection.

By combining cutting-edge technologies, such as deep learning and endpoint detection and response, Intercept X delivers unmatched protection against unknown malware, exploits, and ransomware.

End-to-End Endpoint Protection

To stop the widest range of threats, Sophos Intercept X employs a comprehensive defense-in-depth approach to endpoint protection rather than simply relying on one primary security technique. This is the “the power of the plus” – a combination of leading foundational (traditional) and modern (next-gen) techniques. Intercept X integrates the industry’s top-rated malware detection and exploit protection with built-in endpoint detection and response (EDR).

Take it for a test drive.

Harness the power of a deep learning neural network

Drive threat prevention to unmatched levels. The artificial intelligence built into Intercept X is a deep learning neural network, an advanced form of machine learning that detects both known and unknown malware without relying on signatures.

Deep learning makes Intercept X smarter, more scalable, and higher-performing than endpoint security solutions that use traditional machine learning or signature-based detection alone.

Find out how deep learning goes beyond traditional machine learning, and how Sophos has the industry’s most advanced deep learning capabilities.

“Since deploying we've had zero ransomware infections on our clients' networks.”

“Intercept X uses a deep learning neural network that works like the human brain… This results in a high accuracy rate for both existing and zero-day malware, and a lower false positive rate.”

“Intercept X stopped every complex, advanced attack we threw at it.”

Stop Ransomware

CryptoGuard in Intercept X is the world's best ransomware protection. It uses behavioral analysis to stop never-before-seen ransomware and boot-record attacks, making it the most advanced anti-ransomware technology available.

Exploit Prevention

Intercept X denies attackers by blocking the exploits and techniques used to distribute malware, steal credentials, and escape detection. This allows Sophos to ward off evasive hackers and zero-day attacks in your network.

Intelligent Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)

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

Start with the strongest protection: Consolidate protection and EDR into a single solution

Add expertise, not headcount: Built-in machine learning and threat intelligence from SophosLabs

Guided incident response: Understand your security posture and respond with the click of a button

With Intercept X Advanced with EDR organizations can now understand the scope and impact of security incidents, detect attacks that may have gone unnoticed, analyze files to determine if they are a threat, and confidently report on their organization’s security posture at any given moment.

EDR Explained: What is endpoint detection and response?

Malware Cleanup

Intercept X includes the industry’s most powerful malware cleaner. While most virus cleaners simply remove offending malware files, Sophos Clean provides forensic-level remediation by eradicating malicious code as well as eliminating nasty registry key changes created by malware as well.

Synchronized Security

Synchronized Security simplifies and unifies defenses with real-time intelligence sharing between your endpoints and firewall. This means you get better protection against advanced threats and spend less time responding to incidents.

  • Automatically isolate infected computers
  • Instantly clean up malware
  • 100% visibility of all apps on your network
