Advanced ransomware protection for Mac users

Ransomware is one of the most alarming forms of malware out there – you click the wrong link or open the wrong email and suddenly your files and data are being held for a ransom. For a long time, Mac users thought they were exempt from attacks like ransomware, but as the market for Macs has grown, so has the number of hackers building ransomware capable of attacking Mac products.

It’s time to have a powerful ransomware scanner capable of finding and stopping ransomware regardless of your preferred operating system. Sophos Home uses the same powerful technology used by corporations to stop ransomware. Advanced artificial intelligence tracks program behavior to spot telltale signs of a ransomware attack, so Sophos Home is capable of blocking ransomware nobody’s even heard of.
