Applies to: Sophos Home Premium (Windows and Mac)
This article provides a list of the new features in the Sophos Home Premium Beta, and potential future releases of Sophos Home Premium.
Artificial Intelligence based Threat Protection - (Available on Windows only)
A predictive and intuitive AI based detection mechanism. Detects and blocks known and unknown malware. The new AI engine in Sophos Home evaluates the files before they run and can stop new, never-before-seen, “zero-day” attacks.
Improved Real-Time Protection - (Available on Windows only)
Stops new attach methods targeting Windows PCs. This includes protections from new Windows and Application exploits.
User Interface Enhancements
Expect a modern design of the UI with an improved look and feel for a better user navigation experience. This will be observed on the following screens:
- New Home Screen
- Scanning Screen
- Scan Results
- Local Exclusions
- Notifications (Modern look to match windows 10 design language)
- Notification Overlay
You will now be able to set a scan at a preferred day and time. This is a good feature to keep the computer clean and safe without interfering your work.
For both the Windows and Mac computers, users now have the ability to enable a quarantine of detected malware file rather than the default setting of auto-clean.
For Windows only, the suspect file is automatically cleaned up from the device and placed into a quarantine upon a detection of malware or a Potentially Unwanted Application (PUA). The file can be restored if you believe that it is a valid file.
