Sophos Central Server Protection - Intercept X for Server

Patrizio - July 16, 2018

Watch out users of Sophos Central Server Protection! Sophos will update its server protection this July (at no additional cost). The rollout has already begun. The update brings some new features, some improvements and, in our opinion, an unnecessary name change of the product.

Name changes

Let's start with the less pleasant part first. We don't know the person at Sophos who thinks up the product names, but we certainly won't be friends. It is already clear to us that much has to do with marketing, but even in the past product names were simply changed and we could then explain the situation to confused customers. In addition, we believe that Sophos has not always made the best decisions in the past when it comes to naming or changing the name of its products.

Now it has happened with Sophos Central Server Protection, which was previously available as "standard" and "advanced" versions. Soon the products will be renamed as follows:

  • Sophos Central Server Protection Standard becomes Sophos Central Server Protection
  • Sophos Central Server Protection Advanced becomes Sophos Intercept X Advanced for Server.

Sophos Central Server Protection

Everyone who is currently using Sophos Server Standard should be pleased. Sophos will automatically upgrade your licenses to Sophos Central Server Protection, allowing you to benefit from the advanced features for the same price! All users with the standard version now have the following features:

  • Malicious Traffic Detection (MTD)
  • Synchronized Security Heartbeat™
  • Web Control
  • Application Control
  • Peripheral Control
  • Data Loss Prevention (DLP)
  • Windows Firewall Control
  • Cloud Workload Discovery (AWS Map View)

Sophos Intercept X Advanced for Server

Sophos Central Server Protection Advanced now not only has a different name, it also logically adds new features already familiar from Intercept X:

  • Deep Learning
  • Exploit Protection
  • Active Adversary Protection
  • WipeGuard
  • Root Cause Analysis
