We’re excited to announce the upcoming launch of Sophos Intercept X, ushering in a new era of endpoint protection for modern threats. It’s our new signatureless anti-exploit, anti-ransomware, and anti-hacker technology that includes root-cause analytics and advanced malware cleanup – all managed via the Sophos Central Admin console.
You’ve undoubtedly seen countless headlines about crippling ransomware attacks that cost people hundreds of millions of dollars each year. With Sophos Intercept X, we’ve integrated powerful ransomware protection that’s capable of automatically stopping ransomware attacks as soon as they’re detected and rolling back damaged files to a known and safe state.
Intercept X also includes advanced anti-exploit technology that blocks zero-day threats without the need for traditional file scanning or signature updates. In addition, we’ve added automated forensic reporting that traces attacks back to their origins, pinpoints additional infection points, provides advanced cleanup of malware, and offers prescriptive guidance for strengthening your organization’s security posture. Sophos Intercept X also includes comprehensive deep-cleaning technology, which hunts spyware down that other traditional AV misses and rips out deeply embedded, lingering malware to make remediation a snap.
At launch later this year, Sophos Intercept X can be installed alongside existing endpoint protection to fend off unknown exploit variants and stealth attacks that traditional cybersecurity software might miss – all with minimal impact to system performance. Intercept X will be available as part of our own Sophos Central-managed lineup as Endpoint Ultimate, which combines Endpoint Advanced and Intercept X into a dynamic, complete endpoint protection solution.
We’ll be rolling Intercept X out later in 2016, but we invite you to take it for a spin today alongside our advanced endpoint protection. If you’re already a Sophos Central customer, simply contact your partner for a beta code; if you’re new to Sophos, please sign up for a free 30-day trial account of Sophos Central to get started.
We hope you enjoy using Intercept X and we look forward to your feedback as we perfect this incredible product!
