Sophos Home is the business class cybersecurity for home users. It takes security far beyond traditional antivirus to deliver advanced, real-time protection from the latest ransomware, malicious software, and hacking attempts.
Sophos Home not only provides advanced protection against ransomware. It can detect a ransomware attack in progress, block it, and automatically roll back files to an unencrypted state.
This Sophos antivirus solution automatically blocks websites known to contain viruses or malware. Also it protects your banking and credit card information from being intercepted by third-parties and key-logger software.
The Sophos advanced technologies have earned the MRG Effitas certification for Secure Online Banking. Parental Web Filtering allows you to control what content you and your family have access to by blocking access to websites based on simple categories. Moreover, you will get reports on restricted websites your children attempt to visit.
Free Version protects 3 Devices.
Premium Version protects 10 Devices.
As you know, cybercriminals can use your webcam or microphone to secretly spy on you. Sophos Home alerts you when an outside source is attempting to access your webcam or microphone, giving you the option to allow or block the action.
Immediately after installation, Sophos Home performs a deep scan and clean to eradicate malware and unwanted applications that may be slowing down your computer or threatening your security.
With Sophos Home, you can easily view and manage computer security for anyone in your life – whether they’re in the same house or in another country. And it works for both Macs and PCs.
