Sophos Intercept X For Mobile
Sophos in January began protecting Chrome OS users against unsuitable and malicious web content for the first time with its rebranded Intercept X for Mobile offering. The new mobile security capabilities will address the huge explosion of Chromebooks in the education space and the emerging opportunity in the health care and general corporate spaces as the devices move upmarket and become more feature-rich.
Intercept X for Mobile can now determine if apps installed by students or teachers on Chrome OS devices have malicious intent or operate unethically through tactics such as “fleeceware,” according to Sophos. Fleeceware excels at exploiting loopholes in the rules of Apple’s App Store or Google Play to evade detection but behave in an unethical or deceptive manner.
Intercept X for Mobile scours App Store libraries to identify malicious activity, the company said, looking for apps that have been side-loaded onto a mobile device or smartphones that have been jailbroken to install an application. As hackers adapt new techniques in the mobile space to evade detection, Sophos said it is employing machine learning to identify things the company has never seen before.
