Protection is a Heart Beat Away!

November 12, 2015


Sophos Security Heartbeat


Share intelligence in real time between your endpoints and firewall.

Advanced attacks are more coordinated than ever before. Now, your defenses are

too. Sophos is revolutionizing security by synchronizing next-generation network

and next-generation endpoint security, giving you unparalleled protection.


Synchronizing your security system

To stop sophisticated threats, you need security products that work together

as a system—protecting your users and corporate data across all points of

the network. With Sophos synchronized security, that’s exactly what you

get. The Sophos Security Heartbeat shares intelligence in real time across a

trusted channel between your endpoints and your firewall. This simple step of

synchronizing security products that previously operated independently creates

more effective protection against advanced malware and targeted attacks.


Accelerated discovery of advanced threats

Ding! Your firewall is alerting you to suspicious traffic coming from somewhere on

your network. But what’s causing it? With the Security Heartbeat, Sophos Firewall

OS instantly and automatically communicates to the suspect system exactly

what the firewall is detecting. The Sophos next-gen endpoint protection agent

immediately uses that information to discover the process behind the threat.

Active identification of compromised systems


IP addresses make it easy for computers to communicate, but they don’t make

it simple for IT professionals to track down compromised computers. Thanks

to Security Heartbeat, your firewall has all the information you need to respond

quickly: the name of the computer that’s misbehaving, the user who’s logged

in, and the file path of the process that’s sending malicious traffic. Now you

can spend your time fixing the problem instead of finding the problem.


Automated incident response

If a computer is infected, do you really want it connecting to the Internet, where it

can leak data or get instructions from an attacker? Security Heartbeat automates

the important step of isolating compromised endpoints. Devices share their

current security status with the Sophos Firewall OS, which instantly applies

a customizable policy to restrict or isolate infected systems. It’s endpoint and

network working synchronously to thwart the latest threats and prevent breaches.

Instant visibility into endpoint security status


Alerts provide important real-time information, but sometimes you

just want a snapshot of your network’s security “health.” Security

Heartbeat gives you instant visibility into the security status of all your

protected endpoints. A simple red, yellow, or green indicator lets you

know in real time, which systems require immediate attention, which

can be addressed at your convenience, and which are good to go.
