COULD THE FEAR OF HANDING OVER THOUSANDS OF POUNDS BECAUSE OF RANSOMWARE CRYPTOLOCKER ATTACKS BE A THING OF THE PAST WITH THE RELEASE OF INTERCEPT X FROM SOPHOS?
Cyber-security threats are always evolving and changing and this presents a massive challenge and threat to businesses.
The existence of advance malware such as cryptoransomware variants presents a very visible problem for businesses. Loss of access to critical files, followed by a demand for payment can cause massive disruption to an organisations productivity. You will have undoubtedly seen in the headlines that the crippling effects of ransomware attacks on businesses has cost hundreds of millions of pounds each year.
Before now there has been a lack of products available from security vendors to protect your business against these threats, as standard antivirus solutions are simply not enough to protect against ransomware.
To stay secure against ransomware you need to have effective protection in place at every stage of the attack. Enter the next-generation product from Sophos called Intercept-x which brings a completely new approach to endpoint security and is specifically designed to stop ransomware in its tracks.
Intercept X is a lightweight application that runs alongside your existing antivirus solution immediately boosting endpoint protection by stopping malicious code before it executes. It works with antivirus solutions from any vendors and also Central EndPoint Advanced from Sophos.
One of the main features of Intercept X is the unique Cryptoguard technology which stops ransomware attacks in their tracks. Cryptoguard works on endpoints and servers, detecting and stopping ransomware from encrypting your files and also allows you to roll back damaged files to a known safe state.
Best of all Intercept X doesn’t rely on signatures to catch malware, which means it catches unknown threats without adversely affecting the performance of your device. So youget protection before those exploits even attempt to drop a payload on your systems.
Intercept X Features
There are four features in Sophos Intercept X that work together to provide next-generation endpoint protection:
Signature less threat and exploit detection—The anti-malware and anti-hacker defence feature designed to block zeroday, unknown, and memory-resident attacks and threat variants without the need for file scanning.
Anti Ransomware —Sophos CryptoGuard identifies and stops unauthorised encryption activity within a few files to block ransomware before it can lock and cripple systems, and rolls encrypted files back to their pre-attack state.
Sophos Clean—Hunts for and removes any trace of spyware and deeply embedded, lingering malware. Designed for performance and efficiency, it can be silently installed across an entire organisation.
Root-cause analysis—Provides an interactive visual guide through an attack event that shows where the attack gained entry, what was affected, and where the attack stopped, and provides recommendations to prevent similar attacks in the future. This level of analysis can provide deep information and context to organisations, speeding incident response while potentially reducing the need for dedicated security analysts.
