Sophos CSAD1CSAA | Central Intercept X Advanced for Server – 1-9

Defend your data from malware without sacrificing server performance. Sophos Server Protection protects your server environment from malicious attacks while keeping your servers running at peak performance. Designed to protect business-critical servers, Sophos Server Protection includes server application whitelisting, advanced antimalware, and behavioral analysis. It’s server security simplified, providing protection for your Windows, Linux, and UNIX systems, whether you’re running physical or virtualized servers, on-premises or in the cloud, including Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Azure.



  • Windows, Linux, and UNIX systems with minimal resource usage
  • Protects

  • against ransomware running locally or remotely
  • Synchronized security with target heartbeat
  • Protects and manages server policies

  • for autoscale groups on AWS Protects
  • server images in Azure
  • Server Lockdown with application whitelisting
  • Advanced policy-based rules
  • Simplified management from the cloud or an on-premises console



Sophos Server Protection offers innovative features such as anti-ransomware and pre-execution emulation to identify suspicious patterns of behavior, giving you the broadest protection for your servers and data, even against zero-day attacks. Our CryptoGuard anti-ransomware detects and intercepts unsolicited file encryption, as a result of ransomware running on a remote endpoint that is connected to the server. Server Lockdown uses application whitelisting to protect servers with a default deny policy, which prevents all unauthorized applications from running. Once a server is locked, antimalware and a Host Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) behavioral analysis prevent content-based threats (such as an infected PDF or Word document) that could otherwise exploit vulnerabilities within whitelisted applications.

Sophos Server Protection also includes malicious traffic detection, which monitors traffic associated with malware. This feature enables early detection and removal of malware, along with security synchronized with Security Heartbeat to accelerate threat discovery, isolation, and remediation.

High-performance security built

for servers

Servers are the repositories for most of your organization’s data. Since users need continuous access, maximum uptime and optimal performance are of paramount importance. Server-specific policies provide out-of-the-box protection, giving you granular control of the lightweight agent. A variety of server-specific techniques allow for small, quick upgrades, designed to require fewer server resources and mitigate any impact. Automatic application exclusions for key business applications, such as Exchange or SQL, prevent false positives and unnecessary rescan of files.

Easy to use, including

one-click server lockdown

Sophos Server Protection Advanced is the only solution that locks down your server with a single click, securing servers in a secure state and preventing unauthorized applications from running. With that click, Sophos automatically scans the system, establishes an inventory of applications that are known to perform well, and whitelists them. Other whitelisting applications require manual rule creation to protect scripts and other system files, but Sophos manages connections between applications and associated files, such as DLLs, data files, and scripts.

Server Lockdown is just one example of how Sophos has simplified server security. With policy-based rules for groups of servers, as well as application, peripheral, and web control, Sophos makes it easy to control what’s happening on your servers, whether physical, virtual,

or cloud.

Cloud or on-premises


When it comes to managing your servers, you have options. Our cloud-based Sophos Central, hosted by Sophos, provides instant access to new features without the need to configure and maintain console servers. It also manages other Sophos products, including Endpoint, Mobile, Wireless, Email, and Web, all from a single pane of glass.

If you prefer to manage your servers with an on-premises console, Sophos Enterprise Console offers you that option. Either way, you also get sophisticated functionality along with a simple and intuitive interface for your servers and your users’ workstations.

Security for all platforms

With support for a wide range of platforms, you can protect all servers in your organization. In addition to Windows Server, Sophos Server Protection protects the most common variants of Linux and Unix-based operating systems.
