Sophos Intercept X is the world’s most comprehensive next-generation endpoint protection solution, built to stop the widest range of attacks. Intercept X combines multiple techniques, including signatureless exploit prevention, deep learning malware detection, anti-ransomware capabilities, endpoint detection and response (EDR), and more.
End-to-End Endpoint Protection
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. Intercept X integrates the industry’s top-rated malware detection and exploit protection with built-in endpoint detection and response (EDR).
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.
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.
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 and eliminating nasty registry key changes created by malware as well.
Intercept X Deep Learning
Intercept X combines deep learning with best-in-class anti-exploit technology, CryptoGuard anti-ransomware, root cause analysis, and more to form the industry’s most comprehensive endpoint protection. This unique combination of features allows Intercept X to stop the widest range of endpoint threats.
Deep learning, an advanced form of machine learning, is helping to change the way we approach endpoint security, and Intercept X is leading the charge. By integrating deep learning, Intercept X is changing endpoint security from a reactive to a predictive approach to protect against unknown threats.
While many products claim to use machine learning, not all machine learning is created equally. At Sophos, we use deep learning to detect malware. Also referred to as ‘deep learning neural networks’ or ‘neural networks’, deep learning was inspired by the way the human brain works. It is the same type of machine learning often used for facial recognition, natural language processing, self-driving cars, and other advanced elds of computer science and research.
Deep learning has consistently outperformed other machine learning models, including random forest, k-means clustering, or Bayesian networks, but requires vast amounts
of data and computational power to build an effective model. At Sophos, this has been made simple thanks to the malware collection and analysis efforts of SophosLabs over the past 30 years and the telemetry we receive from our 100+ million endpoints every single day.
