Powerful New EDR Capabilities Now Available In Early Access

Note: Use of all features and functionalities provided under the Early Access Program is subject to the Sophos End User License Agreement.

We are excited to announce that Intercept X Advanced with EDR v3.0 with Live Discover is now available in early access.

Live Discover allows admins to search their data to answer almost any question they can think of by searching across their endpoints and servers using SQL. You can choose from a selection of pre-created queries that can be fully customized to pull the exact information that you need and help answer IT operations and threat hunting questions like:


• Why is this device running slow? Is it pending a reboot? 
• Are users running unauthorized browser extensions? 
• Have any processes had their registry keys or files modified recently? 
• Is remote sharing enabled? What guest accounts exist?
• What processes are attempting to make network connections on non-standard ports? 

 

How to join the Early Access Program (EAP)?

The EAP is open to everyone that has Intercept X and/or Intercept X for Server, even if you don’t currently have EDR.  Customer's currently enrolled in the 'New Endpoint\Server Protection and EDR Features' early access programs won't need to do anything and devices enrolled in to those EAPs will receive the updated software automatically.  Customer's looking to join the early access program should review the presentation available here.  Also check out this video guiding through the process.
