Maximise your data protection with Sophos Home

by | Dec 11, 2019

Sophos Home, our preferred product for protecting your home computers

At ShowellTech, we’re big fans of cybersecurity and data protection. We make strong recommendations to our business customers to use commercial data security solutions, such as Sophos’ business products. This ensures their data and systems have advanced protection against malware, exploits, and ransomware. 

Unfortunately for the average home user, the consumer market is flooded with antivirus programs that all claim to “be the best”. AVG, Bitdefender, Eset, Kaspersky, McAfee, Norton and Trend Micro just to name a few. While all those products are good and generally offer adequate protection, we have a go-to when it comes to home cybersecurity.

Sophos Home is business-grade cybersecurity that includes real time antivirus protection features, as well as AI to block advanced viruses, malware, exploits, and ransomware.

9 ways Sophos Home keeps your devices protected

  1. Parental web filtering – know your children are not accessing unsuitable content. Sophos Home has a simple interface where you can filter web content based on categories. This encourages safe online engagement with websites and social networking blogs.
  2. Cross-platform protection – one security solution to defend all of your computers. Recent years have seen Apple Macs becoming a more valuable target for cybercriminals. Sophos Home takes the worry out of Mac security with advanced protection from specialised Mac malware and ransomware attacks.
  3. Ransomware protection – prevent your personal data, photos, and videos from being locked and held for ransom. Sophos Home uses behavioural analysis to stop never-before-seen ransomware and boot-record attacks, making it the most advanced anti-ransomware technology available.
  4. Real-time Antivirus protection – Sophos Home utilises the extensive SophosLabs databases to constantly protect your computer from known viruses, malware, Trojans, worms, bots, potentially unwanted apps (PUAs), ransomware, and more.
  5. Banking protection – opens a secure browser for additional protection when you access online banking and other financial websites.
  6. Remote management – Easily see and manage all your devices from one simple interface. Doesn’t matter if your device is in your lounge room or in another country.
  7. Privacy protection – Stay safe and get alerted when a 3rd party application attempts to access input devices such as your webcam or microphone.
  8. Web protection – Sophos Home utilises the constantly updated SophosLab database to identify malicious websites. Ensuring that you never connect to a compromised or dangerous website while browsing the web.
  9. Protect up to 10 devices with the one licence. Protect your whole family for one low price for both Windows and Apple Mac computers.
