As businesses move towards mobilizing their workforce, the need for protection is more critical because we store a lot of sensitive data on these devices. This involves protecting portable devices such as laptops, tablets, smart watches, and phones against cyber threats. As more and more people access their emails through a portable device, your mobile phone is the most vulnerable to attacks.  For instance, the more emails you open, the higher the prospects of you clicking on a phishing link.

This blog covers how Intercept X for Mobile protects users, their devices, and corporate data from known and never-before-seen mobile threats by leveraging our market leading Intercept X deep learning engine. It is all deployed by us, as your national cybersecurity partners and is managed seamlessly through Sophos Central, under the Sophos portfolio of next-generation cybersecurity solutions.
