After providing cybersecurity services for thousands of companies within different industries throughout the last thirty years, Sophos finally took a plunge into the home user market with their new anti-malware solution called Sophos Home. If you’re looking for a solid antivirus with good features, this might be the right place to start.

Features


Sophos Home is a standalone, full-featured antivirus with lots of tools to keep your devices as clean as possible. Its advanced malware scan and cleaning tool will perform a deep scan of all your files and remove everything most antivirus would leave behind, traces and remnants of previously “removed” malware. Simple viruses, trojans, rootkits, and spyware will be cleared with ease and it will appear as if they were never there.

Sophos Home real-time threat prevention system is the one that’ll be watching every piece of data that goes through your computer in real-time, monitoring every behavior of all your running programs in order to detect security irregularities. This tool works in tandem with Sophos’ artificial intelligence threat detection, an AI-based program that features deep learning and it’s capable of detecting and blocking the newest malware by evaluating these files before even running on your PC. This is bank-grade security stuff and it’s pretty cool at this price range.

Sophos’ anti-ransomware technology is able to protect all your files from external encryption to then be held for ransom. This program is also a real-time scanner that examines every process involving any of your data. If anything goes wrong and your data starts appearing encrypted, there’s a handy rollback feature; that’ll give you peace of mind.

Sophos Home also includes a really useful remote security manager app; this is specially designed for that person in the family that’s actually responsible for cybersecurity. Now, you can be that person for all of your family members, even if they live abroad. You can control everything remotely from Sophos’ Cloud Management Dashboard in any web browser with relative ease.

They included parental filter is extremely useful for busy parents who want to grant their children with 24/7 internet access without having to micromanage them at all times. You can block whatever you want from adult content, going through social media platforms, and any other content you may find inappropriate for your children.

There are other features in this package that just complete the suite and make it really interesting. Things like anti-phishing technology that blocks every potential damaging website, banking-oriented secured browsing that earned the MRG Effitas certification, alerts for access-attempts to your webcam or microphone, encryption of all of your keystrokes to deter keylogger attacks, and even password security so nobody can access those that you save on your PC.

Cost


There’s a free version of Sophos Home that includes some of its features. You’ll have access to real-time antivirus, parental web filtering, web protection, and even remote management in up to three devices at the same time. It also comes with a 30-day trial of their premium plan.

The premium plan includes everything that comes in the free one plus malware remover, AI-based protection, ransomware security, banking protection, privacy and identity protection, and advanced web security in up to ten different devices. It costs $39,99 for a year’s license and features 30-day money-back guarantee for demanding users.

Conclusion


Sophos Home is just the result of this company’s work in the enterprise field. If high-profile companies with dedicated IT teams trust this technology to protect their sensitive data, don’t you think it’ll be enough for your everyday use? IF you’re looking for an antivirus, check the free version first and go from there.
