Sophos Home Gets An Update

Launched today, the new version of Sophos Home brings business-grade cybersecurity to your home.

Sophos are pleased to announce that they have added new features to Sophos Home which bring powerful, business-grade cybersecurity straight to your home.

Cybercrime is big business, but it doesn’t just target big businesses. Individuals are just as vulnerable to malware and other threats as hospitals, banks, retailers, and other organizations. With Sophos Home, you get the same strong security trusted by thousands of IT professionals, and it’s incredibly simple and easy-to-use.

Artificial Intelligence

From today, Sophos Home Premium for PC has the same artificial intelligence (AI) technology that many people are already using in our enterprise product, Intercept X. This technology allows Sophos Home Premium for PC to detect and block both known and unknown malware before it executes.

In addition to this, new enhanced real-time protection against application and OS exploits stops cybercriminals from controlling trusted apps, using unpatched vulnerabilities to gain access to a system, and stealing credentials.

All versions have new features

In addition to the features that are new for Sophos Home Premium for PC, above, all versions of Sophos Home have had an update.

  • Scheduled Scan – Users can now setup and administer scheduled file system scans for customized protection.
  • Quarantine – More advanced users can now reconcile true and false positive file detections.
  • UI Enhancements – Updates to the user interface make it easier to manage multiple devices’ security from one web browser, wherever the device is.
