Stop Ransomware Before It Takes Your Files Hostage
Ransomware is the number one malware attack affecting organizations today. It encrypts your files and holds them hostage until the ransom is paid, causing massive disruption to business productivity.
Sophos Intercept X features CryptoGuard, which prevents the malicious spontaneous encryption of data by ransomware—even trusted files or processes that have been hijacked. And once ransomware gets intercepted, CryptoGuard reverts your files back to their safe states.
If a threat does breach your defenses it’s essential to know how it got in, what it touched, and if it removed any data. Without this knowledge it’s an uphill task to fix the issue.
For most organizations this level of root cause analysis (RCA) has been beyond their reach. Until now.
Introducing a completely new approach to endpoint protection!
Sophos Intercept X deploys a range of innovative next-gen technologies to block all kinds of advanced attacks. It gives you comprehensive protection from ransomware, rootkits, zero-day vulnerabilities, malicious traffic, and everything in-between.
- Stops ransomware by blocking the unauthorized encryption of files
- Automatically rolls back encrypted file changes with no loss of data
- Protects against both local and remote encryption
New Sophos Intercept X includes powerful yet easy-to-understand RCA capabilities. It makes advanced threat insight a reality for organizations of all sizes.
Exploits are one of the main techniques used by cybercriminals to spread malware. They take advantage of weaknesses in legitimate software products to infect computers for their criminal ends.
While there are millions of different pieces of malware, hackers only use 10’s of different techniques to exploit software vulnerabilities. By blocking these exploit techniques you can stop advanced, zero-day threats from infiltrating your system.
Sophos Intercept X blocks all known exploit techniques, stopping advanced, zero-day attacks before they even get on your system. It’s a highly efficient and effective way to secure your organization.

Build Your Next-Gen Endpoint Protection
The days of straightforward file scanning are long gone. Your goal is now to prevent
threats from reaching your devices, stop them before they run, detect them if they
have bypassed preventative methods, and not just clean up malware, but analyze and
undo everything it does to your endpoints.
Sophos Intercept X uses multiple layers of technology, allowing you to create your own
tailored next-generation endpoint security solution.
Protect Vulnerable Software
Anti-exploit technology stops threats before they become an issue by recognizing and
blocking common malware delivery techniques, thus protecting your endpoints from
unknown threats and zero-day vulnerabilities.
Effective Ransomware Detection
CryptoGuard technology detects spontaneous malicious data encryption to stop
ransomware in its tracks. Even if trusted files or processes are abused or hijacked,
Sophos Endpoint Protection will stop and revert them without any interaction from
users or IT support personnel. CryptoGuard works silently at the file system level,
keeping track of remote computers and local processes that attempt to modify your
documents and other files.
Root Cause Analysis
Identifying malware and isolating and removing it solves the immediate problem.
But do you really know what the malware did before it was removed, or how it was
introduced in the first place? Root cause analysis shows you all the events that led up
to a detection. You’ll be able to understand what files, processes, and registry keys were
touched by the malware and activate your advanced system clean to rewind time.
Add Next-Gen Protection to Your Traditional Security
Sophos Intercept X compliments existing anti-malware and antivirus implementations
delivering powerful next-gen anti-exploit and anti-ransomware protection traditional
products lack. By eliminating the attack vectors which traditional solutions don’t block,
Sophos Intercept X helps to harden your security posture and increase resilience.
Simplify Management and Deployment
Managing your security from Sophos Central means you
no longer have to install or deploy servers to secure your
endpoints. Sophos Central provides default policies and
recommended configurations to ensure that you get the
most effective protection from day one.
