Sophos Intercept X Named Best Endpoint Security Solution by CRN®

Reigns as CRN® Tech Innovator Award Winner Three Years Running

BURLINGTON, Mass., Nov. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sophos (LSE: SOPH), a global leader in next-generation cloud-enabled cybersecurity solutions, today announced that Sophos Intercept X is once again named the best endpoint security solution by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company. For the third consecutive year, it’s recognized as a winner in the CRN Tech Innovator Awards, which honor innovative hardware, software and services.

“The new SophosLabs Threat Report finds that cyber criminals are raising the stakes with automated, active attacks designed to evade security controls and turn organizations’ trusted management tools against them to make a profit and maximize disruption,” said Erin Malone, vice president, North America channel sales, Sophos. “Sophos is committed to protecting organizations, and we’re continuously innovating to stay ahead of new and evolving threats. This award is validation that we’re arming trusted partners with the industry’s best solutions to thwart complex attacks.”

Hundreds of products were evaluated, and Intercept X outperformed others in technological advancements, uniqueness of features and potential to help solution providers solve common IT challenges. Sophos XG Firewall and Sophos Cloud Optix also make the list as finalists.

Intercept X is the industry’s most sophisticated endpoint prevention solution, offering multiple layers of security to deliver unparalleled protection against advanced attacks. The award-winning solution utilizes behavioral analysis to stop never-before-seen ransomware and boot-record attacks, making it the most advanced anti-ransomware technology available. Powered by deep learning, Intercept X has the industry’s best malware detection engine, as validated by third party testing authorities.

“CRN’s Tech Innovator Awards honor technology vendors who work tirelessly to craft ground-breaking solutions for end users, matching the speed of the channel’s evolution,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “The winners in this year’s award categories deserve congratulations for their success in driving IT innovation forward for solution providers and their customers.”

The Tech Innovator Awards will be featured in the December issue of CRN and can be viewed online at http://www.crn.com/techinnovators.
