Sophos Intercept X Advanced
Sophos Central Intercept X Advanced with EDR thwarts malware attacks. At the same time, it protects your company’s network. It does this by creating multiple defense layers to catch attacks that would normally slip through other defense systems. Intercept X Advanced with EDR combines traditional virus signature databases with heuristic scans to detect unknown and zero-day threats.
If a threat is detected using the heuristic scan, it is first quarantined locally, inspected using Intercept X’s deep-learning AI, and then sent to Sophos’ cloud lab for inspection. Unlike most endpoint protection solutions, Intercept X Advanced with EDR does not run suspicious files in a local sandbox. This helps Sophos keep its solution from slowing down local systems, and effecting performance.
Sophos Intercept X Advanced with EDR does not include a firewall. However, Sophos offers a huge line of firewalls and other security appliances. Blogs and videos are available if you would like to know more about them. Or, you can contact one of our security experts at Corporate Armor. They will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Fully cloud managed, easy to install, low false positives, and high detection rate. Sophos Intercept X Advanced with EDR is the total package. Plus, it can be combined with other Sophos products and managed in the same cloud dashboard.
