We are very excited to announce the launch of Sophos Intercept X Advanced with EDR, a new Intercept X offering that integrates intelligent endpoint detection and response (EDR) with the industry’s top-rated malware and exploit protection.
With Intercept X Advanced with EDR, IT and security teams can now better navigate the challenges of today’s most complex threats, such as:
- Understanding the scope and impact of security incidents
- Detecting attacks that may have gone unnoticed
- Searching for indicators of compromise across the network
- Prioritizing events for further investigation
- Analyzing files to determine if they’re potentially unwanted or true threats
- Confidently reporting on the organization’s security posture at any given moment
- Answering tough compliance questions in the event of a breach
Consider the old “needle in a haystack” figure of speech: Most EDR solutions on the market today attempt to collect as much hay as possible to ensure the needles are eventually found.
It’s a complicated, tedious, and manual process. The Sophos approach is different: thanks to industry-leading deep learning technology and unequivocally strong up-front protection, we exponentially shrink the haystack to make the needles much, much easier to find.
Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) tools give security teams the ability to detect, investigate, and respond to suspicious activity. The best EDR solutions start with the strongest protection, and no other solution offers stronger protection than Intercept X.
Because Intercept X technology is so effective at stopping breaches before they start, the EDR workload is significantly lighter. This means that IT organizations of all sizes can optimize key resources, enabling them to focus on the business of IT rather than chasing false positives and dealing with overwhelming volumes of alerts.
The intelligent EDR built into the new Intercept X Advanced with EDR replicates the capabilities of highly-skilled analysts, allowing organizations to add expertise without having to add headcount. The product leverages deep learning, SophosLabs threat intelligence, and more to mimic the roles of a malware analyst, security analyst, and threat intelligence analyst all in one, without having to pay human salaries for those key skillsets.
Even for larger organizations with a security operations center (SOC), Intercept X Advanced with EDR provides a valuable first tier of detection, freeing up human analysts to focus on what’s most important. Guided investigation allows security teams of all skill levels to quickly understand their security postures thanks to context-sensitive guidance, which offers suggested next steps, clear visual attack representations, and built-in expertise. When an investigation is concluded, analysts can respond with a click of a button.
