Intercept X combines deep learning, anti-exploit, anti-ransomware, EDR, and foundational endpoint security techniques in order to stop the widest range of threats.
Sophos Intercept X employs a comprehensive defense-in-depth approach to endpoint protection rather than simply relying on one primary security technique. This is the “the power of the plus” – a combination of leading foundational and modern techniques.
These modern techniques include deep learning malware detection, exploit prevention, and anti-ransomware specific features. Foundational techniques include signature-based malware detection, behavior analysis, malicious traffic detection, device control, application control, web filtering, data loss prevention, and more.
- Detects new and unknown malware using deep learning, an advanced form of machine learning. Using the industry’s number one malware detection engine, Intercept X is able to detect never-before-seen malware before it ever runs on the endpoint.
- Prevents ransomware using CryptoGuard technology. When any malicious encryption is attempted, CryptoGuard stops it in its tracks. Any changes made by the ransomware are rolled back to their original state.
- Denies hackers by blocking the exploit techniques used to carry out attacks. Rather than examining millions of malware samples, Intercept X focuses on over 25 exploit techniques attackers rely on to spread malware, steal credentials, and escape detection.
- Answer tough questions about an incident with intelligent endpoint detection and response (EDR). Built-in expertise, guided investigation, deep learning malware analysis, and more are available in Intercept X Advanced with EDR.
