Sophos Managed Detection & Response provides 24/7 threat hunting, detection, and response capabilities delivered by an expert team as a fully-managed service.

Anti-Virus & Malware Protection
Sophos Central Endpoint Protection blocks malware and infections by identifying and preventing the handful of techniques and behaviours used in almost every exploit.

So, you get protection before those exploits even arrive.
With Microsoft 365 Advanced Threat Protection, you can protect your cloud mailboxes against new, sophisticated attacks in real time. By protecting against unsafe attachments and expanding protection against malicious links, it provides advanced security features to provide better zero-day protection.
Ransomware is the number one cyber attack affecting organisations today. It encrypts your files and holds them hostage until the ransom is paid, causing massive disruption to your charity's productivity. Sophos Intercept X features CryptoGuard, which prevents the malicious spontaneous encryption of data by ransomware—even trusted files that have been hijacked.
Each year, millions of laptop computers are misplaced, stolen, or lost; many of them containing important and sensitive data. Full disk encryption is the essential first line of defence to protect your data in any of these events. Sophos Central Device Encryption gives you the ability to manage full disk encryption from a single, integrated, web-based management centre.
