Introducing Intercept X

Top Recognition from Industry Experts

Modern and Traditional Techniques Combined

To stop the widest range of threats, Sophos Intercept X employs a comprehensive defense-in-depth approach to endpoint protection rather than simply relying on one primary security technique. This is the “the power of the plus” – a combination of leading foundational (traditional) and modern (next-gen) techniques.

Modern techniques include deep learning malware detection, exploit prevention, and anti-ransomware specific features. Foundational techniques include signature-based malware detection, behavior analysis, malicious traffic detection, device control, application control, web filtering, data loss prevention, and more.

Harness the power of a deep learning neural network

Drive threat prevention to unmatched levels. The artificial intelligence built into Intercept X is a deep learning neural network, an advanced form of machine learning that detects both known and unknown malware without relying on signatures.

Deep learning makes Intercept X smarter, more scalable, and higher-performing than endpoint security solutions that use traditional machine learning or signature-based detection alone.

MRG Effitas

“Intercept X uses a deep learning neural network that works like the human brain… This results in a high accuracy rate for both existing and zero-day malware, and a lower false positive rate.”

ESG Lab Report, December 2017

“Intercept X stopped every complex, advanced attack we threw at it.”

Stop Ransomware

CryptoGuard in Intercept X is the world's best ransomware protection. It uses behavioral analysis to stop never-before-seen ransomware and boot-record attacks, making it the most advanced anti-ransomware technology available.

Exploit Prevention

Intercept X denies attackers by blocking the exploits and techniques used to distribute malware, steal credentials, and escape detection. This allows Sophos to ward off evasive hackers and zero-day attacks in your network.

Root Cause Analysis

Detection and response technology provides complete visibility of how the attack got in, where it went, what it touched, plus recommends what you should do next.

Detailed, forensic-level analysis illuminates the root causes of attacks and their infection paths, and offers prescriptive guidance to help remediate infections today and bolster your security posture moving forward.

Malware Cleanup

Intercept X includes the industry’s most powerful malware cleaner. While most virus cleaners simply remove offending malware files, Sophos Clean provides forensic-level remediation by eradicating malicious code as well as eliminating nasty registry key changes created by malware as well.

Synchronized Security

Synchronized Security simplifies and unifies defenses with real-time intelligence sharing between your endpoints and firewall. This means you get better protection against advanced threats and spend less time responding to incidents.

  • Automatically isolate infected computers
  • Instantly clean up malware
  • 100% visibility of all apps on your network

Sophos Central

Intercept X is integrated into Sophos Central, the intuitive cloud-based console for managing all your Sophos Products. There’s no servers to build – just log in, download the agent, and configure all your policies from one place.

Complement or Replace Your Existing Antivirus

Sophos Intercept X Advanced combines the modern techniques found in Intercept X, as well as the proven foundational techniques found in Sophos Endpoint Protection – all in a single agent. Intercept X can also be used to augment your existing endpoint security or antivirus software, giving you deep learning malware detection, anti-ransomware, anti-exploit technology, root cause analysis, and more.
