With this advanced technology, dangerous URLs, unwanted apps and codes can be blocked before they reach your endpoint devices.
Sophos Intercept X
Sophos Intercept X works in cohesion with your security endpoint protection, providing an added layer of protection from cyber-attacks and allowing you to create a cybersecurity solution that is tailored to your business’ needs.

An important step in protecting your systems is implementing appropriate security measures for your wireless network. Your business relies on this network and once access is granted, controlling what occurs within the network is key to preventing cyber-attacks. Sophos Wireless allows you to take control of your business’ wireless network. Create hotspots and guest access to control access to the network and ensure that temporary network users have limited access to any important data or files. You can also monitor your wireless network activity, to ensure that behaviour that could put your security at risk does not occur.
What else can you do to prevent a cyber-attack?
Investing in an advanced and sophisticated security solution is the key to ensuring your business has optimal protection, but what else can you and your business do to prevent possible cyber-attacks or security threats?
Instilling a culture of security awareness and cybersecurity across your business can help to prevent threats from occurring. Ensure your staff are well trained and equipped to identify possible threats and create a plan for what to do if they come across anything that could be a potential threat. This commonly occurs in emails, with cyber attackers attempting to hack into systems through dangerous links. Employees should avoid opening these emails at all costs and alert others to the event so that they are aware of the attempt. With Sophos PureMessage, up to 98% of email scams and phishing attempts are blocked, meaning the problem is prevented before it reaches your workforce.
Preventing a cyber-attack from occurring is the aim of your security, however, if a breach does occur you should be prepared. Backing up your important business data and files can give you peace of mind, knowing that your data is stored in multiple places, protecting you from data loss. You can do this by backing up data to the cloud or externally on hard drives so you have backup and recovery measures in place.
