Sophos adds live protection to data protection offering

Simplifies the rollout of proactive protection for corporate networks from today's fast moving threats

By CBR Staff Writer

IT security and data protection firm Sophos said that it has added Sophos Live Protection technologies to its Sophos Endpoint Security and Data Protection offering in order to block malware outbreaks in corporate networks.

The live protection technologies include Sophos Live URL Filtering for preventing real-time access to URLs, Sophos Live Anti-Virus for stopping previously unseen threats, and Sophos Runtime Behavior Detection for detecting and comparing results to a database of existing profiles.

Sophos said that this new cloud-based architecture provides customers with real-time threat protection and real-time feedback to security and application policy settings. SophosLabs, the global intelligence network of Sophos, has correlated the expertise and data behind these technologies.

According to the company, Sophos Live Protection simplifies the rollout of proactive protection for employees inside and outside the office from today’s fast moving threats such as hijacked websites and targeted malware attacks, without additional IT security management cost.
