Malicious Traffic Detection

Some forms of malware communicate to remote servers to wreak havoc. This can include delivery of additional malware or further instructions for intrusion or communication with a botnet. Sophos Home’s Malicious Traffic Detection feature monitors network traffic for signs of connectivity to known bad servers and URLs, such as command and control servers. If such traffic is detected, it is immediately blocked and the process stopped.

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.
