Threat Prevention

At the gateway, on endpoints, and between them.

It’s a race between security providers and
malware developers, with each trying to stay a
step ahead of the other.

Sophos protects your organization against
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 Protection

Ransomware Protection

Stop ransomware with the CryptoGuard capabilities in Sophos Intercept X. Intercept X blocks ransomware as soon as it starts trying to encrypt your files, and then returns data to its original state. Sophos helps you stop ransomware at every point in your security infrastructure.

Sophos Server Protection

Integrates anti-ransomware that stops local and remote ransomware from encrypting critical business data.

Sophos Endpoint Protection

CryptoGuard, a component of Intercept X, prevents ransomware from causing malicious encryption and ensures against loss of data.

Web Gateway

Sophos Web Appliance blocks ransomware upload/download and its URL filter blocks sites hosting ransomware and their command and control servers.

Email Gateway

Sophos Email Appliance blocks email with ransomware macro attachments while Time-of-Click protection stops users from clicking through to infected sites.

Perimeter Protection

Sophos XG Firewall provides all the latest advanced technology you need to protect your network from botnets, hacks, and advanced threats. Get a full protection suite of network, wireless, IPS, VPN, web, app, email, and web application firewall technology. Sophos Sandstorm with next-gen sandbox technology offers an extra layer of security against ransomware and targeted attacks. With Sophos Synchronized Security, you can quickly identify an infection source and automatically limit its access to other network resources until the infection is cleaned up. Sophos’ network security allows all the advanced networking, protection, user, and app controls you need to stay secure and compliant.

Advanced Threat Protection

Sophos XG Firewall, alongside Sandstorm and Intercept X, provide the ultimate defense against the latest advanced threats like ransomware. Working together, these solutions automatically identify, block, and respond to the latest zero-day threats. Combined analysis from DNS, IPS, web, and traffic filters identifies and blocks botnet and command and control call-home attempts to give you multi-layered protection. The Security Heartbeat links your endpoints and your firewall, combining the intelligence they gather to identify and isolate systems compromised by advanced and previously unknown threats.

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.
