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.

Whether you’re protecting a basic Windows file server or a sophisticated Linux application server, you need the best antivirus protection—without consuming valuable system resources. Our core antivirus engine delivers with:

    -Proactive detection of unknown threats

    -Frequent, lightweight definition updates

    -Real-time Live Protection backed by SophosLabs

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.

Your servers have gone virtual, and so have our products. Our full-featured endpoint client runs with a low memory footprint on popular hypervisors like vSphere, Hyper-V and XenServer. We also offer agentless scanning via vShield Endpoint, featuring:

    -Automatic protection of new VMs

    -Efficient, centralized updates

    -Elimination of “scan storms”

One Server, One License, any Platform

Simply purchase one license for each physical or virtual machine running a server operating system. Install our endpoint client for Windows, Linux, Mac or UNIX, or protect your servers using our agentless Antivirus for vShield. Migrate between them without spending time or money navigating complex, inflexible licenses.

Who has time for navigating complex, inflexible licenses? Sophos Server Security Antivirus keeps it simple: one license protects one server, whether it runs Windows, Linux, Mac, or UNIX. Physical servers, virtual servers, agentless antivirus, full security client—it’s all the same license.
