Sophos - Rugged Business Security Essentials

Sophos is the world’s largest privately held security company offering anti-virus protection like none other before. The software created by Sophos employs the philosophy of heuristic monitoring - evaluating current threats as well as unknown vulnerabilities yet to be discovered. The machine-learning necessary to mediate these threats builds upon a history of traditional anti-virus and known technologies as well as intuitive protocols that seek out modern-day solutions that zero in on encryption detection, live hacking, and exploit prevention. This deep learning technology taps into a realm where the human mind and machine meet – creating algorithms that are buoyed by the thought processes of the brain, along with the intelligence of machines, creating a bulwark line of defense.

Hackers are not just writing assault code as a one-and-done launch of attack. They are sophisticated in that the threats are made to be ongoing and constant, with updates made in real-time to counter any anti-virus that may be pumping out protection. Once the wall has been breached, the hacker can set the stage for a blended attack, from deleting your organizations backups and installing malware/spyware, to installing ransomware  and demanding high dollars for the safe return of your company’s information.

Sophos also offers a centralized dashboard that provides a snapshot review of all active parameters you want to measure and summarizes usage, statistics and many other categories for alerts in real-time. You can test your staff to see where your vulnerabilities lie and receive reports outlining the areas needing remediation and training. Real-time scanning for ransomware, malware, adware, spyware, rootkits, etc. offers capabilities beyond other out-dated, static anti-virus solutions; your business cannot afford to be stuck in the past when malicious threats are lurking, ready to attack and take advantage of old solutions.

TimbukTech can walk you through the capabilities of Sophos and provide a demo to outline all the reporting features available. This is a great way to get a snapshot of where you are now with your vulnerability monitoring and where you could be. You don’t know what you are missing until you do – TimbukTech can prevent you from being surprised by an attack you didn’t see coming. Utilizing deep learning and heuristic monitoring does just that – you need advanced threat protection in this modern age of cybersecurity susceptibility.
