SMS Filtering configuration (Mobile Threat Defense policy for iOS)
With the SMS Filtering configuration you define domain names for the SMS Filtering feature of Sophos Intercept X for Mobile.
SMS Filtering protects users from SMS and MMS attacks. It moves SMS messages containing a fake domain to SMS Junk, excluding messages from senders available in Contacts.
A fake domain looks like your real domain but is slightly modified:
- Single characters are substituted, inserted, or transposed.
- The domain name is amended by prefix or suffix.
- The Top Level Domain (TLD) is different.
For example if the real domain is
sophos.com, the following are fake domains:
hr.sophos.com are not filtered.
If an SMS message is filtered, all further messages from the same sender are filtered as well.
