Meet the Sophos Compromise Assessment

The cost of a breach rises with every second that an attack goes undetected. When responding to an active threat, it is imperative that the time between the initial indicators of compromise and full threat remediation be as brief as possible. Sophos Incident Response Services provide lightning-fast assistance in identifying and neutralizing active security threats.

Sophos provides two core incident response services—the Sophos Compromise Assessment and Sophos Rapid Response—that each play a unique role in managing the incident response lifecycle and helping organizations rapidly identify and neutralize threats.

The Sophos Compromise Assessment – “Has my customer been breached?”

The Sophos Compromise Assessment is the fastest, most effective means of identifying ongoing or past attacker activity in your customers’ environments.

The Sophos Compromise Assessment includes the following benefits:

  • The service is delivered by an expert team of threat hunters and response specialists who confirm if an attacker is operating undetected in your customers’ environment
  • Sophos experts identify the scope of the threat and quantify the potential risk of a widespread security incident
  • Partners and customers receive a written report with technical documentation and a non-technical executive summary detailing evidence of attacker activity
  • Priority onboarding enables customers to immediately shift from threat assessment to threat neutralization with Sophos Rapid Response if an active incident is confirmed
