Sophos Jumps Into Next-Gen Security With InterceptX

September 16th, 2016 by Mark Daly in Industry News No Comments »

Sophos on Sept. 15 officially launched its InterceptX next-generation endpoint security technology in a bid to help organisations with modern ransomware and zero-day threats.  The new technology is being positioned by Sophos as complementary to existing endpoint security technologies.  “The security industry has been talking for some time about the death of AV and to some extent there is legitimacy to that discussion,”  Joe Levy, CTO of Sophos “Signature-based technologies are inadequate in their ability to deal with new classes of attacks or variants of malware they haven’t encountered before.”

Rather than take a signature-based approach, InterceptX is designed to help solve the challenge of modern security threats by understanding how attackers actually exploit users and systems. At its core, InterceptX isn’t antivirus; it’s anti-exploit technology, he said.
