Anti-spyware protection at home
Protection from spyware is an integral feature of Sophos Home. Spyware is a form of malware that is installed on a computer without the user's knowledge in order to collect information about them. When Sophos Home discovers intruders using spying techniques or using a malicious hacking tool, it stops the attack.
Spyware might also be used to search your computer for files that are already there – images, contact lists, passwords, and so forth. They might take screen captures, showing a cybercriminal what you’re doing.
Traditional scanning protection searches for “signatures” enabling them to spot known malware, but often miss new variations written by cybercriminals created to avoid traditional scanning.
Sophos Home Premium’s advanced artificial intelligence watches for how program behave. It identifies suspicious software is acting suspiciously to spot spyware that nobody’s ever seen before.
Sophos Home Premium protects your home computers from advanced malicious threats with the best malware protection available on the market.
