Schools need advanced antivirus and security products, but at affordable prices. With threats like ransomware posing a significant risk, even premium traditional antivirus software may be unable to fully protect your network.
Some free or bundled antivirus products will protect devices from common malware. However, it may be possible for new malware (or ‘zero-day’ malware, as it’s often called) to evade it.
We’ve worked closely with Phoenix Software and Sophos to bring schools the market-leading Intercept X solution at a heavily discounted price: save up to 70% and protect your school from £2.32 per device per year.
To stop the widest range of threats, Sophos Intercept X employs a comprehensive defence-in-depth approach to endpoint protection rather than simply relying on one primary security technique.
Using a combination of leading foundational (traditional) and modern (next-gen) techniques, Intercept X integrates the industry’s top-rated malware detection and exploit protection with built-in endpoint detection and response (EDR).
Intercept X blocks all known ransomware. It utilizes behavioural analysis to stop never-before-seen ransomware and boot-record attacks, making it the most advanced anti-ransomware technology available.
Number 1 for Endpoint Protection
Sophos received the highest score for protection accuracy, legitimate accuracy, and total accuracy, noting that “Sophos Intercept X Advanced blocked all of the public and targeted attacks”.
