Sophos Intercept X Anti-Malware Technology
Research from Abingdon, U.K.-based Sophos shows that IT managers cannot identify 45 percent of their organization’s network traffic, potentially leaving them blind to ransomware, malicious applications, rogue users, and other threats. Intercept X, introduced early this year, provides malware detection powered by deep learning neural networks, and combines new active-hacker mitigation, advanced application lockdown, and enhanced ransomware protection to increase the levels of detection and prevention. Deployed through the Sophos Central cloud-based management platform, Intercept X can be installed alongside existing endpoint security software from any vendor. When used with Sophos XG Firewall, Intercept X can introduce synchronized security capabilities to help further enhance protection.
