Independent testing: Intercept X makes the grade!

ESG LabIf you read the Sophos Blog, you will undoubtedly be aware of how our next-gen endpoint solution can protect you and your business. Sophos is really proud of Intercept X and genuinely believes it’s the best product of its kind out there.

However, we realise that you may want to hear independent opinions as well, which is why we’re pleased to share ESGs Lab’s report with you.

When carrying out the testing, Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) observed Sophos Intercept X’s performance as well as its agility, usability and reliability in detecting and preventing genuine advanced threats and signatureless exploits.

The tests involved:

  • Launching a stack pivoting attack that employed an exploit in a PDF file
  • Emailing a Word document containing real ransomware code from, what appeared to be, that user’s manager
  • Downloading a free report file from the Web, which also downloaded a second file that attempted to zip up the contents of ‘My Documents’ and upload them to a command and control site
