Ground-breaking ransomware protection now available!

Ransomware is one of the most prevalent types of malware affecting organisations today. It encrypts your files and holds them hostage until the ransom is paid, causing massive disruption to business productivity. It is now a £1 billion business affecting hundreds of schools across the UK. Check out the introduction to ransomware below:

Ransomware: A Brief Introduction from Sophos on Vimeo.

Intercept X incorporates powerful ransomware protection and features 'Deep Learning', which prevents the malicious spontaneous encryption of data by all forms of ransomware - even trusted files or processes that have been hijacked. 

Sophos Intercept X can be installed alongside Sophos Endpoint Protection to fend off attacks that traditional cybersecurity software might miss – all with minimal impact to system performance.

Detailed, forensic-level analysis illuminates the root causes of attacks and their infection paths, and offers prescriptive guidance to help remediate infections today and bolster your security posture moving forward. Take a look at Intercept X in action.

A powerful virus cleaner is also included. Most traditional virus cleaners simply remove offending malware files, whereas Sophos Clean goes the extra mile by eradicating the malicious code and registry keys created by malware as well. It’ll be like your machine was never infected in the first place.

At SWGfL, we've worked with Sophos for many years, and have agreed an aggregated deal to allow you to buy Intercept X at a massively reduced price.
