- Protection for Windows, Mac, Linux, UNIX,
NetApp Storage Systems and Windows mobile devices.
- Enterprise Console manages both anti-virus
and client firewall. It simplifies management of Windows, Mac and Linux
protection with deployment, updating, reporting and security policy
enforcement all done from a single point.
- Security policies are automatically enforced
as new computers join your network. ActivePolicies™ in Enterprise Console
can be created in minutes, and applied across multiple groups, across
Windows, Mac and Linux computers, and to all versions of Sophos Anti-Virus.
- One scan with our single anti-virus client
detects viruses, spyware and adware, suspicious files, suspicious behaviour
and unauthorised consumer applications - eliminating reliance on separate
- Unique Behavioral Genotype® Protection will
block zero-day threats before they execute. Built-in intrusion-prevention
technologies combine to detect malware, suspicious files and behaviour.
- Consumer applications that could cause
security, legal, support or productivity concerns for businesses - such as
VoIP, IM, P2P and games - can be allowed or blocked.
Single scan, single agent
You don’t need to manage multiple point products to stop different threats. Our
unified single client protects against viruses, spyware, adware, and potentially
unwanted applications (PUAs). You can even control what your staff install and
prevent them from using unauthorized software such as Instant Messaging (IM),
Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), peer-to-peer (P2P) applications, and games.
One simplified, automated console
Our automated console provides a single point from which to deploy, update and
report on both anti-virus, anti-spyware and firewall protection across thousands
of Windows, Mac and Linux computers. By simplifying and automating protection,
we drive down your costs, ensuring fewer clicks per task and better visibility
of your entire network.
Faster, better protection
SophosLabs’ malware, spam, application and web expertise ensures you get the
fastest and best protection against blended threats. Behavioral Genotype®
Protection and rapid signature updates combine to stop new and unknown malware
and ensure we regularly beat Symantec and McAfee in independent tests.
Security and control for every computer
on your network
Supporting the widest range of platforms in the industry, Sophos Endpoint
Security and Control provides complex networks with rapid, integrated proactive
protection against known and unknown malware, adware and PUAs. It also lets you
control and optionally block applications which are legitimate but which you
might not want users running, such as Instant Messaging. Centrally installed,
configured and monitored across the network, it updates automatically with the
latest protection from SophosLabs as frequently as every five minutes.
- Windows protection detects and removes
viruses, spyware, adware and PUAs, and controls the use of unauthorized
- Protection for Mac OS X supports both
Intel-based and PowerPC-based computers, allows Windows malware to be
deleted and cleaned on a Mac OS X computer, and enables scheduled updating
and configuration from Sophos Enterprise Console or a single Mac computer.
- Detection and disinfection of viruses,
spyware, Trojans, and worms in real time ensures full network protection not
just on Windows but on other platforms such as NetWare, Linux and many
versions of UNIX.
- There is out-of-the-box support for the
widest range of Linux distributions, and Linux desktops, laptops and servers
can all be scanned on access.
- All files are scanned on access as they are
written to or read from NetApp Storage Systems Network Appliance filers.
- On-access, on-demand or scheduled scanning
detects and quarantines malware on Windows Mobile devices, while visual and
email alerts provide notification of blocked threats. You can also create
and lock down company-wide security policies for your mobile devices using a
Improved performance through a single,
unified detection engine
Sophos’s powerful detection engine provides cross-threat protection at every
vulnerable entry point, in a single scan. Eliminating the need for, and overhead
of, separate standalone products, the Sophos engine combines anti-malware
detection with built-in intrusion prevention and detects viruses, spyware,
adware, suspicious files, suspicious behavior and unauthorized VoIP, IM, P2P and
- Integrated detection of threats and single
scanning for good, bad and suspicious code brings significant improvements
in network performance and reduction in IT costs.
- Genotype® virus detection technology
proactively blocks families of viruses even before specific virus signatures
- Behavioral Genotype Protection, our built-in
intrusion prevention technology, proactively protects against zero-day
malware, detecting new threats before code even begins to execute.
- Sophos behavioral rulesets are constantly
validated against an extensive library of legitimate applications, to ensure
- Decision Caching™ technology improves
on-access scanning performance by intercepting and scanning only files that
have changed since last accessed.
Reducing complexity and cost
Through our automated, single console – Sophos Enterprise Console – Sophos
Endpoint Security and Control provides scalable security management across tens
of thousands of computers. It enables deployment and update of Sophos Anti-Virus
and Sophos Client Firewall across the network – including remote computers –
from a single point. It also allows centralized cleanup of malware, policy
enforcement, and selective authorization of potentially unwanted applications,
such as adware.
- You can manage tens of thousands of Windows,
Mac OS X and Linux computers from a single console, and benefit from
unrivalled visibility of security status across the entire network.
- The console synchronizes with Active
Directory to ensure your chosen security policy is automatically enforced as
new computers join your network.
- Outbreak risk levels across the entire
network are displayed on the security dashboard and automatic email alerts
are sent when your chosen security thresholds are threatened.
- You get a complete intrusion prevention
system (HIPS) without complex installation and configuration – runtime
analysis, buffer overflow and unique pre-execution protection proactively
detect malware, suspicious files and behavior, and are managed from the
- ActivePolicies™ in the console allows you to
create a policy once and then apply it across multiple groups, across
Windows, Mac and Linux computers, and across all versions of Sophos
- ActivePolicies™ reduces the recurring
management costs associated with anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-adware,
client firewall and intrusion prevention, and now include controlling
unauthorized VoIP, P2P, and IM use.
- Your protection is automatically updated as
frequently as every five minutes – and because you control the download
rate, you can preserve bandwidth.
- Integrated graphical reporting delivers
instant and scheduled email reports of threat alerts and infections while
the security dashboard gives you an at-a-glance report of outbreak risk.
- Endpoint computers can be completely
disinfected in a single, simple operation from the console.
- You can search via the built-in Sophos
search-and-find mechanism, which uses any existing Active Directory data, or
by IP subnet ranges.
