Sophos Endpoint Security and Control

What Is Sophos Endpoint Security and Control   

Sophos Endpoint Security and Control for Windows and Mac is a single endpoint client that detects viruses, spyware and adware, suspicious files, suspicious behavior and potentially unwanted applications (PUAs); monitors the transfer of sensitive and confidential data; and controls the use of removable storage devices and unauthorized VoIP, IM, P2P and gaming software—eliminating the need for separate stand-alone products.
