In 2016 alone, hackers have taken over $1 Billion in the form of ransoms from users trying to retrieve their files after being infected with ransomware.
We know ransomware is one of the biggest threats facing organizations today but the security industry has traditionally struggled to keep up with this sophisticated, ever-changing attack. Until now.
Deploying a range of innovative next-gen technologies to block all kinds of advanced attacks, Sophos Intercept X is designed to stop ransomware in its tracks. It gives you comprehensive protection from rootkits, zero-day vulnerabilities, malicious traffic, and everything in-between.
Microsoft has now mapped out the future for the Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET) in part one and it looks pretty bleak. The advice given to EMET users was also a little vague: Upgrade to Windows 10. It’s a more secure operating system.
Although that’s true, it doesn’t cover everything that EMET does for you. Over on the CERT/CC blog, Will Dormann provides an excellent post about why Windows 10 can’t protect insecure applications like EMET can. The table seen in Dormann’s post highlights the protection available with and without EMET on Windows 7 and Windows 10. As you’ll see, Windows without EMET looks a little risky.
Designed to secure business critical servers without sacrificing performance, Sophos Server Protection protects Windows and Linux servers from malicious attacks using a variety of traditional and next-gen methods, including Malicious Traffic Detection, Application Whitelisting (Lockdown), and soon CryptoGuard anti-ransomware capabilities.
Sophos now enables application and management of Server Protection policies for Amazon Web Services Auto Scaling Groups, and display valuable information about EC2 Instances in the Sophos Central management console.
Sophos responds to the requirements of the new Investigatory Powers Act, which has just become law in the UK
The inaugural 2016 Security Excellence Awards by UK magazine Computing saw Sophos collect two industry prizes last night: SafeGuard 8 took the Data Encryption Award and Sophos XG Firewall won the Firewall Solution and UTM Award.
The ceremony was held in London in the shadow of the Shard, where the Sophos representatives enjoyed the somewhat surprising, albeit entertaining, performance of the skinny public-schoolboy-looking freestyle-rapping presenter, Chris Turner.
