Server Protection

Advanced server protection made simple.

Powerful, Server-specific Protection

Protect the applications and data at the core of your organization; whether that data is on physical servers or virtual servers in the cloud or on premises. Sophos Server Protection integrates anti-ransomware, application whitelisting, along with our advanced anti-malware and HIPS providing easy, centralized management of the security of all servers.


CryptoGuard stops local and remote ransomware from encrypting critical business data

Malicious Traffic Detection

Malicious Traffic Detection identifies communication to Command and Control servers

Security Heartbeat

Synchronized Security provides accelerated threat discovery, active source identification and automated remediation

CryptoGuard Stops Ransomware

Even if ransomware sneaks past your initial layers of protection, CryptoGuard protects against the unsolicited encryption of server data, whether that ransomware is running on the server or on connected endpoints. Beyond stopping the ransomware and restoring the encrypted files back to their previous state with no loss of data, Sophos can also accelerate threat discovery, investigation, and response with Synchronized Security, reducing incident response times exponentially.
