Looking for antivirus software? Sophos Intercept X was tested in the Q2 2019 MRG Effitas 360 Degree Assessment & Certification, which compared twelve endpoint protection products. The test focuses on “metrics that matter” in order to replicate real-world scenarios. MRG releases a new version of this test every quarter. This is the first time Sophos has participated publicly.
First, the Sophos Intercept X antivirus software was tested “out of the box” in its default configuration. As a result, it was able to prevent the system from infection in every scenario:
- It blocked 100% of zero-day, in-the-wild attacks
- Furthermore, it blocked 100% of malware tested (financial, Trojans, backdoors, ransomware, and other malicious) applications.
- It blocked 100% of exploits and file-less attacks
- Moreover, it also blocked 100% of PUAs and adware
- Zero false positives
No other vendor achieved strong results without requiring configuration changes.
