Sophos Central Intercept X - Cryptoguard against ransomware

Protection against Ransomware
Fighting encryption trojans before it's too late.

A classic antivirus has no chance against encrypted trojans like Petya, WannaCry or Locky. With Intercept X, you can get a specialist on your computer who uses a technology called "CryptoGuard" to detect any malware that attempts to encrypt files on your computer and stop the process immediately. Already encrypted files are then restored automatically, so that no data loss occurs.

Intercept X is not intended as an alternative to antivirus software, but should be seen as an additional layer of protection.

The only truly comprehensive exploit prevention
Prevent exploiting security vulnerabilities.

Sophos Exploit Protection is a unique technology in Intercept X that prevents previously unknown or unpatched vulnerabilities in applications or operating system components from being exploited. Intercept X monitors each application in the background and checks for exploit techniques during each action.

If such a technique is detected, exploit prevention prevents a safety gap from being exploited and restores the system to a safe state.

Sophos Central Intercept X - Root Cause Analysis

Root Cause Analysis
Find out the cause of the attack.

Imagine that, despite all the protective measure names, malware has made it into your network. How did this happen? Intercept X's root cause analysis allows you to uncover this mystery with an impressive 360-degree analysis. The Root Cause Analysis Tool can tell you in detail how the malware got into the network, which devices were infected and what steps you should take now.

With Root Cause Analysis, you'll never be in the dark again when your network has been infected by unknown malware.

Sophos Clean
Restores the system to its original state after an attack.

With Intercept X, you're protected against signatureless pests such as Ransomware, but after an attempted attack, your system must still be freed from all the remnants. Since there is no cleaning routine for unknown pests, all processes of the executed malware have to be examined forensically. Sophos Clean takes care of this task.

Sophos Clean performs a complete cleaning of the system after a stopped attack. It not only removes the malware itself, but also replaces infected Windows resources with safe, original versions and finally restores the system to its original state, as it was before the infection.
