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 analyse 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.
