With the Sophos on-demand malware scanner, VARs, system integrators, and IT security solution providers are able to offer next-gen awareness to their customers as they guard against viruses, Trojans, rootkits, spyware, and other malware on up-to-date and fully-protected computers. The solution runs side by side with existing antivirus solutions, allowing customers to get a second opinion and better visibility as they protect against threats and attacks their current antivirus may have missed.

Signatureless protection.
Runs without installation.

Offers a signatureless, on-demand and lightweight security – no setup required. The solution can be run from a USB flash drive, a CD/DVD, or from network-attached storage, which is also useful if malware is manipulating the installed antivirus software and its updates.

Zero-day malware coverage.

Provide protection that goes beyond identifying static malware attributes and instead detects behavior indicative of advanced malware threats. Sophos technology combines deep forensic inspection with behavior analysis and collective intelligence from multiple sources to help detect and combat new and resilient malware.

Compatible with most other antivirus solutions.

Help your customers with conflict-free, on-demand scanning for next-generation malware their existing antivirus is unable to detect. Sophos malware scanner not only scans and detects non-signature threats – it also replaces infected Windows resources with the original, safe versions.
