Sophos Boosts Threat Detection Prowess With Latest Edition Of Its Intercept X App

Sophos was on top of its technology game this week when it rolled out the latest version of its Intercept X anti-exploit software for general availability. The endpoint security tool incorporates deep-learning technology that boosts malware detection rates.

The company says the new release is the only software on the market that combine's machine learning, malware and exploit blocking, and ransomware protections into a single product.

The new deep learning capabilities are the result of Sophos' acquisition of Invincea in February 2017. The addition of deep learning makes it possible for Intercept X to curate and label data even more accurately given its ability to process hundreds of millions of samples rather than just tens of millions.

That boosts the predictive security capabilities of Intercept X, which can now make more accurate predictions at a faster rate with fewer false-positives than with traditional machine learning technology.
