Sophos, a global leader in network and endpoint security, will showcase its latest security technology for endpoint, servers and security management at GITEX 2018. Visitors to the stand (SR-D4) will be able to hear more about the deep learning technology that has won several regional endpoint and network category awards for Sophos in during the last twelve months. They will also hear first-hand how Sophos deep learning technology goes beyond traditional machine learning, and how Sophos has the industry’s most advanced deep learning capabilities integrated into its security solutions.

“At GITEX 2018, we plan to place the spotlight on our deep learning innovation to demonstrate how organizations can use predictive security to change the way their IT operations protect their users and assets,” said Harish Chib, vice president, Middle East & Africa, Sophos. “As the threat landscape continues to evolve at a rapid pace and organizations continue to be hit by more varied and unique forms of malware, the only way to combat such advanced threats is with a proactive multi-layered approach to security. Predictive protection is the future of IT security. GITEX offers us a great opportunity to meet and interact with customers and partners to discuss their security priorities, but equally as the region’s premier ICT exhibition provides the ideal platform to sign new partners and strengthen our channel network”

Deep learning is a powerful, groundbreaking tool for keeping unknown threats at bay. It is the latest evolution of machine learning, which delivers a massively scalable detection model that is able to learn the entire observable threat landscape. With the ability to process hundreds of millions of samples, deep learning can make predictions that are more accurate at a faster rate with far fewer false positives when compared to traditional machine learning.  Deep learning uses a neural network set up like the human brain to make decisions based on stored data and predictive reasoning. It can handle hundreds of millions of points of information, quickly and accurately, while not bogging down your system.

At GITEX Technology Week 2018, Sophos will feature its latest deep learning enabled security solutions including:

  • Sophos Intercept X, delivering predictive endpoint protection that deploys a defense-in-depth approach to stop known and unknown threats from infecting an organization
  • Sophos Intercept X for Server, providing powerful server specific protection to protect critical apps and data whether located on physical servers, virtual servers or in the cloud
  • Sophos XG Firewall, offering comprehensive firewall protection that exposes hidden risks, blocks unknown threats, and automatically responds to incidents.
  • Synchronized Security, a security system enabling products to directly share status and threat information, to automate and improve the time taken to respond to potential threats.

Sophos security experts will deliver demonstrations on its latest next-gen solutions, product developments, and the latest research on security threats, including the recent SamSam ransomware and Cryptojacking. Key presentations by senior executives from Sophos at the stand during the event include:
