Sophos Sandstorm – Next-generation advanced threat defense made simple

Sophos SandstormAttackers are more frequently using previously-unknown malware to evade traditional protection. While conventional anti-malware protection is still absolutely vital as a first line of defense, organizations need additional tools to combat today’s targeted, unknown malware.

Unfortunately, many next-generation solutions designed to deal with unknown threats are too complex and expensive for many businesses to consider. And under-resourced small and mid-sized businesses definitely don’t want yet another point solution to clutter up their network.

This is why we’re launching Sophos Sandstorm, an advanced malware defense solution that complements Sophos security products to quickly and accurately detect, block and respond to evasive threats using powerful, cloud-based sandbox technology.

Sophos Sandstorm is a new breach detection platform across the Sophos portfolio. The first Sandstorm component is a cloud-delivered next-generation sandbox that provides targeted attack protection, visibility and analysis by detecting, blocking and responding to evasive, unknown threats.

Sophos Sandstorm integrates with the Sophos solutions you’re already using:

  • Sophos Web Appliance (SWA) 4.2 is the first product to implement Sophos Sandstorm.
  • Sandstorm will be integrated with Sophos Email Appliance 4.0, UTM 9.4, Cloud Web Gateway and XG Firewall in 2016.
