What Does Sophos Intercept X Do?
Intercept X Advanced with EDR allows you to ask any question about what has happened in the past, and what is happening now on your endpoints. Hunt threats to detect active adversaries, or leverage for IT operations to maintain IT security hygiene. When an issue is found remotely respond with precision. By starting with the strongest protection, Intercept X stops breaches before they start. It cuts down the number of items to investigate and saves you time.
Intercept X Endpoint Features
Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)
Sophos Intercept X Advanced with EDR integrates powerful endpoint detection and response (EDR) with the industry’s top-rated endpoint protection. Built for both IT security operations and threat hunting, Intercept X detects and investigates suspicious activity with AI-driven analysis. Unlike other EDR tools, it adds expertise, not headcount by replicating the skills of hard-to-find analysts
Extended Detection and Response (XDR)
Sophos Intercept X Advanced with XDR integrates network, email, cloud*, and mobile* data sources on top of endpoint and server information, giving you an even broader of your organization’s cybersecurity posture. With 30 days of cloud storage included you can look back in time to understand how an attempted breach began and conduct real-time investigations.
Today’s ransomware attacks often combine multiple advanced techniques with real-time hacking. To minimize your risk of falling victim you need advanced protection that monitors and secures the whole attack chain. Sophos Intercept X gives you advanced protection technologies that disrupt the whole attack chain including deep learning that predictively prevents attacks, and CryptoGuard which rolls back the unauthorized encryption of files in seconds.
Deep Learning Technology
By integrating deep learning, an advanced form of machine learning, Intercept X is changing endpoint security from a reactive to a predictive approach to protect against both known and never-seen-before threats. While many products claim to use machine learning, not all machine learning is created equally. Deep learning has consistently outperformed other machine learning models for malware detection.
Exploit prevention stops the techniques used in file-less, malware-less, and exploit-based attacks. While there are millions of pieces of malware in existence, and thousands of software vulnerabilities waiting to be exploited, there are only handful of exploit techniques attackers rely on as part of the attack chain – and by taking away the key tools hackers love to use, Intercept X stops zero-day attacks before they can get started.
Sophos Managed Threat Response (MTR) provides 24/7 threat hunting, detection, and response capabilities delivered by an expert team as a fully-managed service. Sophos MTR fuses machine learning technology and expert analysis for improved threat hunting and detection, deeper investigation of alerts, and targeted actions to eliminate threats with speed and precision.
