Sophos Network Threat Protection for Windows Servers just got better! We're adding Malicious Network Traffic Protection with Packet Inspection - better known as Intrusion Prevention System (IPS). This feature has been live for Windows Endpoints and we are excited to extend this to Windows Servers.
This technology is already present on your firewall, but it only protects machines that are inside your network against attacks from the outside. But that protection isn't there when you connect to the Wi-Fi of the local coffee shop. It is also needed if a server is infected and tries to attack other machines in your network.
Please do post your feedback into the community; we've seen some interesting detections from Windows Endpoints!
