Cyber Security can no longer be considered just the problem of the IT department. It is a problem for an entire organization. With advancements in technology, organizations are storing more and more confidential data on servers and in the cloud due to the ease of storing. At the same time, cybercriminals are getting access to sophisticated technologies to access these confidential data by targeting the endpoints. Coping with cybersecurity threats is now part of the business continuity strategy of many organizations, and it is high time that they invest in an advanced endpoint security solution to protect their data.

Sophos Intercept X Endpoint is a next-gen endpoint security solution. It is much more than a simple antivirus software and comes with a plethora of features that keep your endpoints safe and secure. Here are some of them –

Features of Sophos Intercept X Endpoint

  1. Deep Learning Technology
    Sophos Intercept X Endpoint is powered by Artificial Intelligence that uses deep learning to provide malware protection without depending on signatures. It uproots various malicious software completely even before they attack your endpoints due to the deep learning and predictive analytics capabilities of it. These capabilities make Sophos Intercept X much smarter and effective against even futuristic threats as it can detect them from its past learnings. This feature makes this solution unique amongst the countless other endpoint security solution providers available who use traditional methods to protect the endpoints of organizations.
  2. Anti-Ransomware
    Sophos Intercept X Endpoint also offers comprehensive ransomware protection for your endpoints. It does this by not just protecting your files but also by helping in the automatic recovery of them in case of any issues. Ransomware is wreaking havoc in various organizations by intelligently fusing advanced techniques and real-time hacking, making it extremely difficult to identify the threat and also eliminating them. Thankfully, it protects you by disrupting the entire attack chain of ransomware with the help of its deep learning techniques, thereby preventing possible attacks.

    Sophos is also powered by CryptoGuard that rolls back all the unauthorized encryption of files to a safe state within minutes. This means the employees in your organization can continue working without any interruption to ensure the continuity of business. You will also get the complete report on where the threat got in and what was infected by it to give you a holistic picture of the attack.

  3. Endpoint Detection and Response
    Sophos Intercept X Endpoint comes packaged with intelligent Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) that can detect breaches on Endpoint and respond immediately. It shows you exactly where to begin an investigation and guides you through the entire investigation process step-by-step. By stopping breaches even before they start, Intercept X helps you to save time by cutting down the number of items that need investigation. The powerful SophosLabs helps you to make an informed decision on whether to ignore or convict suspicious items thanks to its curated threat intelligence. It also adds expertise by replicating the skills of security analysts.
  4. Managed Threat Response
    The Managed Threat Response of Sophos Intercept X Endpoint gives you round the clock threat hunting and detection and also response capabilities that are delivered by an expert team. This feature of Intercept X takes security one notch higher by not just notifying you of any threats, but also takes actions on your behalf and eliminates even the most complex threats within seconds.
  5. Exploit Prevention
    Even though there are many software vulnerabilities and malware that can cause irreparable damage to your endpoints, thankfully, there are just a few exploitation techniques that attackers regularly use to get their job done. Intercept X keeps track of all these techniques that hackers use to exploit the vulnerabilities in the endpoints. By doing this, Intercept X stops all those exploit-based attacks right at the doorstep of the endpoints.
  6. Active Adversary Mitigations
    Intercept X never incorporates before seen techniques to identify and prevent any form of credential theft or code cave utilization, which are usually very safe havens for attackers owing to their ability to remain undetected in the victim’s network. As a result, these malicious techniques are dangerous way beyond malware and ransomware due to its ability to make the attackers look like legitimate users in the network. Intercept X detects their presence easily in a network and prevents all sorts of attacks on endpoints.

Wrapping Up

Cybersecurity is a big issue currently faced by various organizations. The threat is only going to increase as the attackers get more and more powerful thanks to the never-seen-before attack mechanisms they can lay their hands on. It is up to the organization to protect its confidential data by investing in an ideal security solution like Sophos Intercept X, which offers a blanket of security across all the endpoints.
