By the end of February, Windows servers protected with Sophos Central Server Protection Advanced will have new ransomware-stopping capabilities, while also participating in Synchronized Security™. When combined with Sophos XG Firewall, Heartbeat for Servers provides a compelling proposition: Enhanced threat detection, positive identification of compromised servers, and automated response.
Servers are different to user endpoints. For that reason, a number of powerful new anti-ransomware and Synchronized Security capabilities are now available to assist server admins, as well as our new “Sophos for Virtual Environments” offering:
To take advantage of the CryptoGuard and Security Heartbeat features, a Central Server Protection Advanced license is required. The feature must be enabled in a Threat Protection Server policy within Sophos Central. However, the “Sophos for Virtual Environments” offering is included in every Sophos Server Protection license – those managed with Sophos Enterprise Console (on-premises) or with Sophos Central (cloud-managed).
Note that these feature enhancements for Sophos Server Protection are in addition to Malicious Traffic Detection (for both Windows and Linux), Application Control, Web Control, and Peripheral Control – all of which were added to Sophos Central Server Protection Advanced in 2016.
