Server Security Server Protection

Powerful, Server-specific Protection

Protect the applications and data at the core of your organization, whether that data is on physical servers or virtual servers, in the cloud or on premises. Sophos Server Protection integrates anti-ransomware and application whitelisting alongside our advanced anti-malware and HIPS to provide easy, centralized management of the security of all servers.


CryptoGuard Stops Ransomware

Even if ransomware sneaks past your initial layers of protection, CryptoGuard protects against the unsolicited encryption of server data, whether that ransomware is running on the server or on connected endpoints. It goes beyond stopping ransomware and restoring encrypted files back to their previous state with no loss of data – Sophos can also accelerate threat discovery, investigation, and response with Synchronized Security, reducing incident response times exponentially.
