Sophos XDR: Detections Dashboard Now Available

ProductsIntercept XIntercept X for ServerSophos XDR

We are pleased to announce that the Sophos XDR Detections dashboard is now available for all Intercept X Advanced with XDR and Intercept X Advanced for Server with XDR customers.

The dashboard provides a prioritized list of suspect activity and vulnerable configurations that warrant immediate attention. The prioritized list makes it easy for admins to focus on the important issues and reduce time spent on investigating low-risk events.

Suspect activities are ranked on a 1-10 risk scale (10 being the highest risk), highlighting a description of the detection and how it maps to the MITRE ATT&CK framework. Additional details include the time of the event, associated processes, executed command lines, file hashes, device, user, and more.

While digging into the details of a suspicious item, it’s easy to take further action with a context-aware list of deeper investigation options and immediate actions that can be performed.

Trying out the Sophos XDR Detections dashboard

It’s easy to try out Sophos XDR and the new Detections dashboard. If your customers are new to XDR, they’ll also get the opportunity to use powerful threat hunting capabilities that answer important security and IT operations questions such as “is RDP unnecessarily enabled on any devices?” and “has my software rollout successfully completed?”

Existing XDR customers – they don’t need to take any action unless they have disabled uploads to the Sophos Data Lake. To turn on uploads select ‘Global Settings’, then under Endpoint or Server Protection (or both) select the ‘Data Lake uploads’ setting and toggle the ‘Upload to the Data Lake’ on.

New customers – if they have a Sophos Central account they can start a trial of XDR functionality via the in-product trial tab. In the left hand column select ‘Free Trials’ and then ‘Intercept X Advanced with XDR’ or ‘Intercept X Advanced for Server with XDR’. Then follow the above instructions for enabling the Sophos Data Lake.

If customers don’t have a Sophos Central account they can start trials for their endpoints and servers on the website.
