High security, low impact
How do we deliver great protection without compromising performance? It starts with
innovative features like pre-execution emulation for identifying suspicious behavioral
patterns, and in-engine caching, preventing needless rescanning of files between
updates. Frequent, lightweight definition updates keep your protection current without
causing network congestion. And Live Protection looks up unknown and suspicious files
in real time, keeping your servers secure, even between updates.
Optimized for virtual environments
We’ve optimized our Windows antivirus client to take advantage of the unique
characteristics of virtual platforms, like memory sharing and gold image deployment.
Our Virtualization Scan Controller lets you stagger scan times, minimizing resource
conflicts. And Antivirus for vShield makes it simple to integrate agentless antivirus
protection into your VMware environment. It reduces resource use, eliminates scan and
update storms and protects Windows virtual machines as soon as they come online.
Security for every platform
We support a broad range of platforms so you can protect every server in your
organization. Along with Windows Server, Sophos Server Protection secures several
popular flavors of Linux—including CentOS and Ubuntu—and Unix-based operating
systems like HP/UX, Solaris and AIX.
