Anti-Exploit Protection

Common computer programs, such as Microsoft Office and web browsers, are often an easy backdoor for malware to access a computer and any data on it. These programs are particularly vulnerable to zero-day exploits, which is industry jargon for malware that has yet to be discovered and then have a patch or signature written and distributed for it. Sophos Home secures these programs with real-time exploit prevention. This monitors the programs for abnormal behavior, stopping any malicious action in its tracks. Sophos Home also replaces infected Windows resources with safe, original versions.

Sophos Home Free includes a free 30-day trial of Premium plus an immediate Advanced Malware Removal to thoroughly clean your computer of any current malware infections.
