Burlington, Massachusetts, UNITED STATES


OXFORD, United Kingdom, May 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sophos, a global leader in next-generation cybersecurity, today announced that its endpoint products have ranked first in all three of SE Labs’ protection tests, achieving an unprecedented 100% total accuracy score across the board. Sophos Intercept X won the enterprise and small business categories, and Sophos Home Premium was a top consumer security product.

“As attackers continuously advance ransomware and other cybercrime techniques, the potential damage they can cause to organizations irrespective of their size and industry is growing every day,” said Dan Schiappa, chief product officer at Sophos. “This is why organizations and individuals need innovative, predictive endpoint protection that helps prevent attacks from happening in the first place. A clean sweep of all three of SE Labs’ endpoint protection awards is clear validation that Sophos endpoint protection for the office and at home is a must have first line of defense.”

Sophos Intercept X is the industry’s most sophisticated endpoint security solution, offering multiple layers of security for unparalleled protection against advanced attacks. It combines anti-ransomware technology, deep learning artificial intelligence, exploit prevention, and active adversary mitigations to stop the widest range of threats. Endpoint detection and response (EDR) advancements make Intercept X the first EDR solution designed for both security analysts and IT administrators, enabling them to quickly identify, investigate and respond to security issues.

“SE Labs’ endpoint protection tests are really challenging because they are so realistic. We recreate what adversaries are doing ‘in the real world’ to attack businesses and consumers, so for a product like Sophos Intercept X to handle all of the threats is excellent and extremely encouraging. We are also the only test to use the full attack chain to give products the ability to showcase their detection and protection strengths,” said Simon Edwards, CEO and founder, SE Labs. “Sophos Home Premium, in particular, did so well because it stopped all of the bad software and allowed all of the good, which shows how effective it is, but also makes it a cleaner, easier experience for consumers.”

Sophos Home Premium extends Intercept X’s innovative and powerful security to consumers. Sophos Home protects Windows PCs and Macs from malware and ransomware, and provides webcam privacy, web protection and parental web filtering.

The SE Labs reports are available at SE Labs.
