SOPHOS Unveils AI-Powered Smart Endpoint Defence System
Sophos APAC and Japan senior technology solutions director Anthony Wai recently talked about his company’s new smart product suite called Intercept X which uses machine learning to anticipate and protect their customers from new threats.
The endpoint defence system, which recently won the Computing’s Security Excellence Award for Security Innovation of the Year, is able to identify suspicious behavior by examining current trends and analyzing over 400,000 samples of suspicious code per day collected by Sophos Labs. Wai said that the more samples the system processes, the better the training.
It was noted that the cybersecurity firm had acquired several AI and machine learning startups including SurfRight, Barricade, and Invincea during the past few years.
