Sophos Mobile 9.5 is now available in Sophos Central, bringing a host of exciting improvements. Key enhancements include:
Sophos Intercept X for Mobile
Leveraging deep learning anti-malware technology, Intercept X for Mobile protects users, their devices, and corporate data from known and never-before-seen mobile threats.
Device, network and application protection will be delivered in a completely redesigned interface, which enables easy management and identification of any security holes on users’ devices.
Device Security continuously monitors for potential compromise and sends alerts so IT admins can rapidly and automatically remediate issues and revoke access to corporate resources.
Network Security monitors network connections for suspicious activity in real time, warning IT admins and users of potential Man-in-the-Middle (MitM) attacks. Web filtering and URL checking also stop access to known bad sites, protecting users from unsuitable content, and SMS phishing detection spots malicious URLs.
Application Security detects malicious and suspicious applications installed on devices, protecting against malware, ransomware and potentially unwanted apps like Fleeceware.
Intercept X for Mobile can be deployed via Sophos Mobile or 3rd party UEM Products, e.g. Microsoft Intune, allowing administrators to build conditional access policies, restricting access to applications, data and corporate resources when threats are detected.
