Threat Prevention at the gateway,
on endpoints, and between them.

It’s a race between the security providers and malware developers, with each trying to get a notch ahead of the other. On one hand, the security defenses are growing in strength. On the other, malware are turning into more targeted and sophisticated attacks to get the maximum information out of an organization in minimum time – all this while lying low and going undetected by traditional network defenses.

Sophos protects your organization against such cutting edge threats by bringing together its advanced threat prevention technologies to give you a multi-layered approach to advanced threat protection.

Sophos and Threat Prevention

Perimeter Protection

Sophos Anti-Spam scans inbound, outbound and internal email to eliminate over 99% of spam with our Live Anti-Spam real-time updates. Sophos Anti-Malware Protection is based on a high-performance anti-malware engine supported by SophosLabs. Protection goes beyond signature-based detection to include advanced, proprietary techniques like code emulation and behavioral analysis to detect obfuscated or polymorphic threats. Sophos next-gen IPS offers advanced protection from all types of modern hacks and attacks using a uniform signature format also supported by SophosLabs.

Advanced Threat Protection

Sophos protects your organization from data exfiltration by identifying infected or compromised hosts inside the network and their communication with command-and-control (CnC) servers. The database is constantly updated by SophosLabs through pattern updates. Sophos’ revolutionary Security Heartbeat links your endpoints with your firewall to give you faster discovery, positive identification, and automated action to detect and prevent advanced threats faster. The Heartbeat status is integrated into the security policy settings of your firewall, allowing you to isolate or limit the access for compromised systems until they are cleaned up.

Protection of Encrypted Traffic

Sophos ensures that encrypted traffic in your network does not remain a blind spot by offering a fully transparent SSL scanning, enforcement and protocol validation. SSL Decryption securely intercepts and decrypts SSL traffic to allow deep scanning for security, compliance, and policy checks with policy-driven opt-outs, allowing privacy for sensitive traffic. Protocol Enforcement for encrypted traffic connections identifies and blocks unwanted traffic trying to bypass filtering or traffic shaping.

SophosLabs – the Global Threat Intelligence Advantage!

Sophos has developed a state of the art big data analytics system to efficiently process the millions of emails, URLs, files, and other data points that come into the labs each day. This data, along with our extensive experience, enables us to develop new definitions, detect entire classes of threats, and even new variants. And, with Live Protection and Live Anti-spam, you benefit from all our data and analysis in real time.
