The Evolving Cyber Threat Landscape

Overall, the cyber threat landscape is one of the most hostile it has ever been. Perhaps a major contributing factor has been the ongoing pandemic that has forced thousands of enterprises to hurriedly scramble for Business Continuity (BC) solutions.

In most such speedy implementations, cyber security either got completely ignored or was not awarded the due importance it deserved. As a result, cyber miscreants have been wreaking havoc with Federal, State, Commercial and Non Profit establishments.

dinCloud’s Cyber Security

At dinCloud, a robust cyber security posture has always remained one of the defining characteristics of our cloud powered solutions. dinCloud’s spotless track record in cyber security is the result of constant investment and innovation in industry leading solutions.

dinCloud Adopts Sophos Cyber Security Suite

In its ongoing commitment to build and maintain a robust security posture, dinCloud has integrated the world’s best cyber security suite developed by Sophos into its cloud hosted solutions and services.

Intro to Sophos

Sophos is considered one of the world’s leading software and hardware companies when it comes to cyber security solutions. Based in Britain, Sophos specializes in end point security, encryption, network security, mobile security and email security.

Why dinCloud selected Sophos?

Unlike other cyber security companies that mainly rely on a reactive approach, Sophos adopts a proactive approach to threat detection, prevention and mitigation. Its world class security tools rely on artificial intelligence and machine learning to counter threats.

Sophos Intercept X Endpoint Security

Most cyber security experts hold a consensus view that in cloud computing solutions, end points are by far the weakest link. The in depth analysis of most successfully mounted cyber attacks has identified end point devices as often being the point of entry.

Cyber miscreants are well aware that responsible Cloud Service Providers (CSP) like dinCloud adopt a multi faceted and fool proof approach to cyber security. However, end users of cloud solutions may either be unaware or unprepared for modern cyber threats.

What is Sophos Intercept X Endpoint?

Intercept X Endpoint is one of the flagship cyber security products developed by British cyber security company Sophos. This solution focuses primarily on end point security, but still does not ignore the other critical components of any cloud infrastructure.

Features of Sophos Intercept X Endpoint

Features of Sophos Intercept X Endpoint

Sophos Intercept X solution for endpoint security is a feature rich solution that relies on a multi dimensional approach to detect, prevent and contain the impact of a wide range of cyber threats such as malware, ransomware, exploits and viruses.

In this post, we will highlight some of the key features of Sophos Intercept X Endpoint and how they contribute towards making dinCloud’s already secure and robust cloud infrastructure a totally secure fortress when pitched against cyber miscreants.

Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)

This feature of Sophos protects the end point user devices under the use of dinCloud customers. This functionality detects cyber threats targeting the vulnerable end point devices and is even capable of launching counter measures remotely.

Anti Ransomware

This Sophos feature protects dinCloud infrastructure from ransomware attacks using a multi pronged approach. It not only protects files, but also enables automatic recovery of any affected files through regular backups.

This protective functionality of Sophos Intercept X also studies the attack behavior and pattern of the threat to evolve a defense mechanism for similar ransomware threats. This feature also protects against boot record attacks.

Exploit Prevention

This aspect of Sophos Intercept X protects dinCloud infrastructure by blocking the very mechanisms and techniques used by cyber criminals to avoid detection, steal user credentials and further propagate malware.

Active Adversary Mitigations

This feature of Sophos safeguards end point users against cyber attacks that are currently in progress. It firstly isolates the vulnerable end point devices to reduce the surface area of the attack. This aspect is particularly effective in detecting malicious network traffic.

Managed Threat Response (MTR)

MTR feature of Sophos Intercept X specifically targets the perpetrators of a cyber attack. This feature deploys elite threat experts who first isolate and safeguard any vulnerable device. These experts also actively respond to threats on behalf of dinCloud users.

Deep Learning Technology

This technology is powered by strong Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) algorithms. Both these work in coordination to detect both discovered and still unknown malware ready to infect the end point devices of dinCloud users.

dinCloud Integrates Sophos with Entire Architecture

As the cloud professionals at dinCloud adopt a holistic approach to cyber security, the Intercept X protection tool by Sophos has been implemented at both the end point device and server levels alike.

dinManage and Sophos Integration

To facilitate its valued cloud users, dinCloud has fully integrated the Sophos end point protection features into dinManage, which is our in house cloud orchestration portal. This allows dinCloud users to manage various aspects of their cloud solution deployment.

As the integration process of Sophos into dinManage is accomplished, dinCloud users that want to avail these additional cyber security features will be able to do in a matter of just a few minutes and clicks.

Sophos Central Intercept X Endpoint Advanced

This aspect of Sophos security suite has been implemented with particular focus on dinCloud’s end point devices. The comprehensive coverage provided by Sophos solutions will go a long way in improving the security of end user devices.

Sophos Central Intercept X Advanced for Server

This feature of Sophos has been integrated with the global data center infrastructure of dinCloud to further enhance the security of end user data. Our overall security posture is not complete without securing the back bone cloud architecture as well.
