Sophos Mobile product overview

Sophos Mobile is a Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) and Mobile Threat Defense (MTD) solution that enables businesses to secure mobiles, desktops, laptops, and tablets. Managed through Sophos Central, customers can protect Android, iOS, Chrome OS, macOS, and Windows 10 devices through a single interface.

Sophos Mobile is suitable for enterprises that want to spend less time and effort managing and securing mobile devices. The platform empowers organizations to manage mobile devices with the web-based, unified admin interface alongside endpoint, network, or server security. It delivers secure container apps and support for mobile OS containerization in iOS, Android enterprise, and Samsung Knox. As a result, sensitive company data stays separate from personal information on the device.

Unified endpoint management

With Sophos Mobile, teams can manage and secure corporate-owned or personal Windows 10, macOS, and mobile endpoints through one system for a simpler management strategy. This ensures uniform company security policies and secure access to company assets. For maximum productivity, organizations that embrace BYOD can apply consistent policies regardless of device type or ownership. Additionally, Sophos Mobile protects and secures business data, users, and mobile devices.

Mobile threat defense

The platform allows organizations to establish a robust line of defense at the mobile device level with proven threat protection. Powered by Sophos’ deep learning technology, Intercept X for Mobile provides a reliable level of security, guarding against the latest mobile threats such as ransomware, network attacks, and exploits. Businesses can enforce company policies with compliance checks that automatically restrict access to business resources or initiate remediating actions in case of violations. Sophos Mobile helps customers secure mobile devices side-by-side with desktop, server, and network platforms.

Business and personal data protection

Companies can protect and secure business data on personal or company-owned mobile devices. To make sure that business data is safe and personal information is private, Sophos Mobile supports BYOD environments through the Android Enterprise Work Profile and iOS User Enrolment modes of management. Businesses can deploy corporate email and apps to a device and feel safe in the knowledge these remain separate from a user’s personal data, enabling productivity without compromising security. Admins retain control over corporate content without intruding on the users’ privacy.
