Intercept X Tech Specs

Intercept X is available for devices running Windows 7 and above, 32- or 64-bit operating systems. Intercept X is designed to augment your existing endpoint security or antivirus software, giving you next-generation anti-exploit, anti-ransomware, root cause analysis, and advanced system cleaning technology. It can also be used in conjunction with Sophos Endpoint Protection.

Intercept X and Endpoint Protection are both managed by our unified console, Sophos Central. No servers to build—just log in to download the agent and configure all your policies from one place.

For additional information, check out the Sophos Intercept X datasheet.
