Sophos Endpoint Protection

Sophos Endpoint Protection (Sophos)

All-in-one malware and data protection which is designed to offer complete security including encryption, web filtering and patch assessment.


Sophos Endpoint blocks malware and infections by identifying and preventing the handful of techniques and behaviors used in almost every exploit.

Sophos Endpoint doesn’t rely on signatures to catch malware, which means it catches zero-day threats without adversely affecting the performance of your device. So you get protection before those exploits even arrive.

Sophos Endpoint can block web and application exploits, dangerous URLs, potentially unwanted apps, and malicious code from ever touching your endpoints.

Sophos Endpoint works on the device and in conjunction with the firewall to detect and isolate compromised devices. Synchronized Security gives you additional context providing information from the network.

Sophos Endpoint Protection is available in the following editions:

  • Advanced: Complete security that includes encryption, web protection and patch assessment.
  • Standard: Everything in Advanced, minus patch assessment, DLP, anti-malware for network storage and not able to be used on Linux.

Product Features

Current Features:

Decloaking Malware

  • Behavioral Analytics: Determines suspicious behaviors, allowing for the detection of malware specifically designed to evade traditional solutions.
  • Traffic Detection: Pre-filters all HTTP traffic and tracks suspicious traffic as well as the file path of the process sending malicious traffic.
  • Integrated Endpoint and Network:Instant and automatic communication between the Endpoint and Network alerts the suspected system of exactly what the firewall is detecting, allowing the endpoint protection agent immediate use of that information to discover the process behind the threat.

So Long Malware

  • Isolate: Part of remediating a problem is putting it in quarantine so it can’t keep spreading. When necessary, Sophos isolate compromised devices until we can be sure they’re safe.
  • Threat Removal
  • Synchronised Security:By automating threat discovery, investigation, and response, Synchronised Security revolutionises threat detection. Incident response times are reduced exponentially and tactical resources can be refocused on strategic analysis.
