Sophos launches next generation anti-exploit, ransomware technology 'Intercept X'

New Delhi [India], Sep 19 (ANI): Global leader in network and endpoint security Sophos has announced the launch of Sophos Intercept X in India with a feature that can detect previously unknown ransom-ware within seconds.

Sophos Intercept X installs alongside existing endpoint security software from any vendor, immediately boosting endpoint protection by stopping malicious code before it executes.

A next-generation endpoint security product, Intercept X stops zero-day malware, unknown exploit variants and stealth attacks, and includes an advanced anti-ransomware

It combines four critical security components that IT administrators should expect from next-generation endpoint protection, which includes signature less threat and exploit detection, anti-malware and anti-hacker defense that blocks zero-day, unknown and memory resident attacks and threat variants without the need for file scanning.

Anti-ransomware innovation that identifies and intercepts malicious encryption activity, blocks ransomware before it can lock and cripple systems. Also, it can roll back maliciously encrypted files to their pre-attack state.

"India ranks fifth amongst the top vulnerable countries worldwide with a threat exposure rate of 16.9 percent (Geomalware report). Sophos Intercept X will play an important role to combat next generation threats with its powerful and effective anti-ransomware, anti-exploit and root-cause analysis features," said Vice President Sales, Sophos India and SAARC, Sunil Sharma.

"Our customers need not worry about being held ransom anymore or attacked via multiple software exploits," added Sunil Sharma.

"Sophos is a next-generation security company that has stayed at the forefront of the industry by understanding the threat landscape, changing business needs and customer challenges. Using big data analytics along with our deep understanding of threat patterns, attack vectors and criminal motivations, we designed Intercept X from the ground up to recognize malicious behaviors and stop potential attacks much sooner in the kill-chain, without the need for updates or signatures," said Senior Vice President of the Enduser Security Group at Sophos, Dan Schiappa.

"Ransom-ware is one of the most important worries challenges for our customers. With Intercept X our customers can effectively combat ransom-ware attacks, software exploit attacks and respond to threat incidents effectively with the root-cause analysis solution. Intercept X has worked wonderfully in beta and we are excited to implement this on our customer networks," said Director of Tatva Networks Sophos' platinum partner in India, Thirupati Sunderesan.

Available from today, Intercept X is available through the Sophos Intercept X webpage for Rs. 2500 to Rs. 4000 per user, for one year term and scales based on volume and term length. (ANI)
