These are the tools that can protect your business

More than two-thirds (68%) of organisations say they were hit by a cyberattack in the last year. It’s not a matter of ‘if’ it’ll happen to your business – it’s a question of ‘when.’

You need to counter these threats to prevent these attacks from causing harm. But how do you ensure you’re taking the right precautions and implementing the right tools and technologies?

If you’re already using Sophos Intercept X, you’re benefitting from the industry’s most comprehensive endpoint protection.

And even if you’re not, the addition of powerful endpoint detection and response (EDR) is your next step in keeping your business secure.

It’s quickly become must-have technology that’s widely used by businesses of all sizes, enabling organisations to identify the root cause of an attack, how long it’s been in their system, and the potential impact.

And yet not all EDRs are created the same. Just having it isn’t enough. In fact, 54% of organisations with EDR say they can’t fully benefit from their solution. That’s why it’s crucial to choose an EDR solution that works for your organisation, rather than one that will just add more work.
