Next-gen PUA removal with Sophos Home

Sophos Home protects your home computers from potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) and potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) like network scanning tools and penetration testing tools that can be used for malicious purposes.

With Sophos Home’s website blocker feature, you can block access to the shady, untrustworthy sites typically the home of PUPs and PUAs. This ensures you and your family do not erroneously download these programs onto your computer. Sophos Home goes beyond traditional antivirus protection to look for applications and programs that are behaving suspiciously – detecting and ensuring PUP and PUA removal. This is all done before these can get at sensitive personal information like financial credentials or cause havoc on your computer and, by association, in your life.

Combine this with real-time, 24/7 threat intelligence from SophosLabs and you have a home computer security solution that addresses all challenges posed by the latest cyber threats.

Sophos Home stops PUP and PUA malware with:

Exhaustive Website Blocker
Sophos Home enables you to block websites that are malicious, potentially compromised, and the kind of sites that can push you to unintentionally click on a PUA or PUP download link. You stay clear of such sites.
In-depth Parental Web Filter
Children can stumble upon sites with adult content, blogs, social networking sites or those with potentially inappropriate content and these also host PUAs or PUPs. Sophos Home helps you control access to such sites.
Real Time Scanning
While downloaded programs are being written to the file system, they are also being scanned in real time. Even if you have mistakenly downloaded a file from a dubious website or server, it will be detected and blocked.
