Why a multi-layered approach is best for the NHS
As a U.K.-founded supplier of cybersecurity, Sophos has an unrivalled understanding of the threat landscape and challenges facing the NHS. We appreciate the fact that the NHS is not one entity but a plethora of different organisations, each with its specific requirements and priorities. Sophos brings in-depth knowledge of the NHS to help us meet your changing security needs. The ease-of-use and simplicity of our products results in significant savings in terms of support and administration.
Sophos has a knowledgeable, dedicated NHS team that acts as trusted advisors to NHS organisations and the partners that serve them. Download this white paper to learn more.
NHS Digital writes on its website, “patient safety and care is enabled by strong data and cyber security.” This is something that Sophos has been working on in partnership with the NHS for over thirty years.
Sophos welcomes NHS Digital’s subscription to the Windows 10 desktop operating system, which includes Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP)1, as we believe that this will provide another layer of security to complement our solutions and help remove legacy systems, which are easier to attack or compromise.
Speaking to many of our customers, it has become apparent that there is a great deal of misunderstanding about what Windows Defender ATP is and isn’t, and how it is compatible with Sophos technologies.
Windows Defender ATP is designed to complement and work alongside existing antivirus and endpoint security products, including Sophos Intercept X Advanced, and acts as a last line of defence from cyber threats.
Intercept X Advanced offers anti-ransomware and anti-exploit capabilities above and beyond traditional malware protection.
In terms of endpoint protection, customers need to decide whether to rely just on the built–in technologies in Windows (like Defender antivirus) or to use additional endpoint capabilities.
