Sophos Server Protection

Sophos Server Protection defends your data from malware without sacrificing server performance.
One license includes agentless antivirus for vShield and our full antivirus client for Windows, Linux and UNIX. Manage them all through the easy-to-use Sophos Enterprise Console. It’s server security made simple, only from Sophos.

High security, low impact

How do we deliver great protection without compromising performance? It starts with innovative features like pre-execution emulation for identifying suspicious behavioral patterns, and in-engine caching, preventing needless rescanning of files between updates. Frequent, lightweight definition updates keep your protection current without causing network congestion. And Live Protection looks up unknown and suspicious files in real time, keeping your servers secure, even between updates.

Optimized for virtual environments

We’ve optimized our Windows antivirus client to take advantage of the unique characteristics of virtual platforms, like memory sharing and gold image deployment. Our Virtualization Scan Controller lets you stagger scan times, minimizing resource conflicts. And Antivirus for vShield makes it simple to integrate agentless antivirus protection into your VMware environment. It reduces resource use, eliminates scan and update storms and protects Windows virtual machines as soon as they come online.
