Email Security for Advanced Threats

Keep your users and business safe with instant protection from advanced threats. Our default settings get to work immediately, intercepting email containing suspicious content, attachments, and URLs.

Spam Filtering

Powered by the SophosLabs global network, updates for the latest threats are fed live to Sophos Email, ensuring your Sophos email gateway won’t miss any of the thousands of new threats discovered every hour. Our reputation filtering blocks over 99% of spam at the gateway, and our anti-spam engine catches the rest, including the latest phishing attacks.

Phishing and Malware Protection

Email is the most commonly used attack vector for an organization. Sophos Email protects against phishing and malicious attachments by scanning emails and attachments together in context, allowing us to detect and block content and technologies commonly used by malware writers – including those containing ransomware.

  • Intercept suspicious email content and URLs
  • Block infected email attachments
  • Provide “spoof” alerts direct to the user’s inbox
  • Create multiple lines or defense, including employee training through Sophos Central

Simple to move

We know moving platforms and providers can be a hassle. That’s why Sophos Email’s security filters work seamlessly with a comprehensive range of email services to provide advanced protection – including Google G Suite, Microsoft Exchange 2003+, and Microsoft Office 365. This allows you to scale up user numbers as and when you need.

  • Deployment requires a simple MX record change to route email through Sophos Central
  • Simply bring in users and their mailboxes with our handy AD Sync or Azure AD Sync tool
  • Pre-set policies reduce complexity, improve setup times, and increase policy adoption
  • Say goodbye to patching – new features are added seamlessly in Sophos Central
