Server Security

Powerful Protection for Servers

Ensure the highest level of security for your mission-critical servers. Sophos Server Protection integrates server application whitelisting/lockdown with our advanced anti-malware and HIPS. This provides you with effective protection against zero-day attacks.

  • Server application whitelisting/lockdown—protects against known and unknown threats
  • Device Control protects against data theft via USB sticks
  • Malicious Traffic Detection blocks or alerts based on traffic to known Command and Control URLs
  • Application Control limits the applications that can execute, further reducing the attack surface
  • Server Lockdown allows only specific applications and associated/trusted files to run
  • Comprehensive malware scan before lockdown — your servers are locked in a known-good state
