Sophos has announced the availability of Sophos Intercept X in India with a wide range of new features and enhancements starting at Rs. 2,500. Technically, Intercept X is a next-generation endpoint security product that stops zero-day malware, unknown exploit variants, and stealth attacks. Moreover, the Sophos Intercept X ships with an advanced anti-ransomware feature that can detect previously unknown ransomware within seconds.
Sophos Intercept X combines four highly critical security components such as signatureless threat and exploit detection, cryptoGuard, root cause analytics and Sophos clean. These components provide an ability to boost endpoint protection by stopping malicious code before it executes.
Commenting on the release, Sunil Sharma, vice president sales, Sophos India & SAARC disclosed that Sophos Intercept X will play an important role in combating next generation threats with its powerful and effective anti-ransomware, anti-exploit and root-cause analysis features.
Our customers need not worry about being held ransom anymore or attacked via multiple software exploits. He also added that there is an immediate need for sophisticated security software since India ranks top 5 among the top vulnerable countries worldwide.
Sophos Intercept X is enabled with the Security Heartbeat to share threat intelligence with Sophos next generation XG Firewall and SafeGuard Encryption solutions for a coordinated and automated response to the attack. The product can be easily installed and managed remotely through the Sophos Central cloud-based management console.
This allows administrators to control and configure settings, distribute licenses, add new endpoints and track all activity. Moreover, the single pane of glass dashboard designed for Sophos partners displays all Sophos Central services available to provide higher levels of customer protection. The dashboard also provides clues to partners about the recurring revenue opportunities.
Sophos Intercept X starts from Rs. 2500 and goes up to Rs. 4000 per user based on volume and term length. If you would like to test drive the services, you can download the free trial and then migrate to paid license.
