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.
Rainer Gawlick, chief marketing officer at Sophos, said: “The latest combination of technologies introduced in Sophos Endpoint Security and Data Protection 9.5 will address many web-based threats and targeted attacks – a top concern among all businesses today – without adding any additional overhead for the customer.”
Sophos Endpoint Security and Data Protection 9.5 also comes equipped with enhanced Tamper Protection that prevents users from uninstalling or disabling security features such as anti-virus, client firewall, and updating on their computer.
