Protecting your system at boot time

The master boot record (MBR) contains the information your computer needs about how your disk is organized, which area of your drive contains the operating system you want to use, and how to load that operating system.

Some malware is designed to infect the MBR before your operating system and your antivirus software. It’s great at hiding. And if it can hide, it can give control of your computer to a cybercriminal, who can track your keystrokes, encrypt your files, or do virtually anything else. These forms of malware can be very hard to exterminate – even if you format your hard drive and reinstall Windows, they’re still there, ready to perform the same attacks over again.

Sophos Home Premium recognizes telltale signs in program behavior by using advanced artificial intelligence to spot when a program is acting suspiciously, including when these initial files load on your hard drive. Using these techniques, Sophos Home Premium can recognize malware that nobody’s ever seen before.

Sophos Home Premium protects your home computers from advanced malicious threats with technologies used in Sophos Antivirus, the best malware protection available on the market.
