Sophos IT Security Software

Sophos is a UK based security software company that develops products for endpoint, network and email security. They are one of the leaders in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for 2018 for Endpoint Protection report and their products form an important element of Shackleton’s Security Suite.

Today, the threat landscape for business continues to evolve at an astonishing rate. Sophos products offer excellent protection against malware and viruses and help to block or remove threats, before they can cause any damage.

Security companies such as Sophos must learn to predict the future of security threats. Their recognition by Gartner, year on year, is testament to their ability to do just that, arguably more effectively than their contemporaries. This constant drive to remain one step ahead, is one of the reasons Shackleton trusts Sophos products to help protect our clients.

Sophos has identified that almost all malware attacks or exploits use the same few techniques and behaviours. By preventing these, utilising what they call “Next-Gen Protection”, they ensure better security for endpoints, wherever they are located.

Another technique used by Sophos is behavioural analytics, which helps detect suspicious behaviours that are designed to evade capture by other security solutions. By discovering, investigating and responding automatically to threats, attacks and infections, protection is effectively “always on” helping reduce response times, giving Shackleton clients’ peace of mind.
