Deep Learning Malware Analysis is now available as part of the Intercept X Advanced with EDR Early Access Program.  When clicking on a file you can now submit it to SophosLabs to receive the latest threat intelligence, driven by our deep learning malware analysis engine.  This exciting feature automatically analyzes malware in extreme detail, breaking down file attributes and code and comparing them to millions of other files. Analysts can easily see which attributes and code segments are similar to “known-good” and “known bad” files so they can determine if a file should be blocked or allowed. 

We are so excited about this new feature we want to ensure you are taking advantage.  This is why we are introducing an incentive program to encourage you to submit files for analysis. Two winners will from our Intercept X Advanced with EDR Early Access Program will be chosen:

  • The largest number of unique threat objects submitted will receive a USD $200 voucher to the online Sophos Store.
  • The most interesting or exceptional threat object submitted will receive a $200 voucher to the online Sophos Store.


What are you waiting for?  Get those files submitted!
