Intercept X Advanced with EDR

EDR Starts with the Strongest Protection

To stop breaches before they start, prevention is crucial. Intercept X consolidates unmatched protection and endpoint detection and response into a single solution. This means that most threats are stopped before they can ever cause damage, and Intercept X Advanced with EDR provides additional cybersecurity assurance with the ability to detect, investigate, and respond to potential security threats.

The inclusion of EDR into a consistently top-rated endpoint protection suite enables Intercept X to significantly lighten the EDR workload. The more threats that are prevented, the less noise that is created for security teams to investigate. This means teams can optimize key resources enabling them to focus on the business of IT rather than chasing false positives and an overwhelming volume of alerts.

Intercept X Advanced with EDR allows administrators to answer the tough questions about security incidents by providing visibility into the scope of an attack, how it started, what was impacted, and how to respond. Security teams of all skill levels can quickly understand their security posture thanks to guided investigations which offer suggested next steps, clear visual attack representations, and built-in expertise.

When an investigation is concluded, analysts can respond with a click of a button. Rapid response options include the ability to isolate endpoints for immediate remediation, clean and block files, and create forensic snapshots.

Intelligent EDR Use Cases

Intelligent endpoint detection and response means that security teams have the visibility and expertise they need to answer the tough questions that are asked as part of an incident response effort.

Beyond EDR

To stop the widest range of threats, Intercept X Advanced with EDR employs a comprehensive defense-in-depth approach to endpoint protection rather than simply relying on one primary security technique. This is the “the power of the plus” – a combination of leading foundational and modern techniques. Intercept X Advanced with EDR integrates the industry’s top-rated malware detection, top- rated exploit protection, and intelligent endpoint detection and response (EDR).

Modern techniques include deep learning malware detection, exploit prevention, and anti-ransomware specific features. Foundational techniques include antivirus, behavior analysis, malicious traffic detection, data loss prevention, and more.

Intercept X Advanced with EDR combines endpoint detection and response capabilities with the modern features in Intercept X and the foundational techniques in Sophos Central Endpoint Protection. This is delivered as a single solution, in a single agent.
