Configure policies

You configure Sophos for Virtual Environments by using Sophos Central policies.

You can only use the Threat Protection policy type, but you can create multiple policies if you want to.

By default, Sophos Central applies a base Threat Protection policy to all your Security VMs. The settings in the policy are then used for the guest VMs.

These settings offer:

  • Detection of known malware.
  • In-the-cloud checks to enable detection of the latest malware known to Sophos.
  • Proactive detection of malware that has not been seen before.
  • Automatic cleanup of malware.
