When Sophos Phish Threat was released in January, we pointed out that:
- Email remains one of the most problematic sources of infection; and
- It’s the ordinary, well-meaning people who often let poisonous emails into their organizations.
I am so excited to announce our acquisition of Invincea, a next-generation endpoint security company founded by Dr. Anup Ghosh in 2009.
One may ask, if you already have great next-generation technology, why do you need Invincea’s technology?
Our mission at Sophos is to provide the best security solutions on the market and to make them easier to understand, deploy and manage than any of our competitors’ offerings.
From our continuous assessment of the threat landscape, two things are abundantly clear: first, that email is one of the most problematic sources of infection; and second, it’s the ordinary, well-meaning people who often let poisonous emails into their organizations.
Mac malware is on the rise. While Apple does provide system protection for MacOS Sierra, dangerous infections that can wreak havoc are consistently being developed and deployed by cybercriminals. That’s why we created Sophos Home to protect every Mac in your home with business-grade security.
The Internet of Things (IoT) holds a great deal of promise to make everyday devices much easier to use, control, program, and access remotely. From “smart” home thermostats and refrigerators to lights and automobiles, there’s remarkable potential to make our lives easier — but there’s also untold risk that these devices can bring to our day to day lives. Since so many IoT devices are (by their nature) connected to the internet, if they’re not properly secured, they can be easily hijacked by attackers.
