Utilise the World's No.1 rated endpoint and server protection, Sophos Intercept X

Move From Russian Built Kaspersky to the World’s No.1 Sophos Intercept X

Many SMEs continue to take an active approach to their cyber security, utilising various products and services available to ensure their organisation is protected in the best way possible. 

However, with several SMEs using Russian Kaspersky Antivirus products, many of those companies are worried about the impact of using a Russian product since the outbreak of the war in Ukraine and despite the NCSC stating there is little to no danger for enterprises, many are looking elsewhere for protection products.

“It almost certainly remains the case that nearly all individuals in the UK, and many enterprises, are not going to be targeted by Russian cyberattack, regardless of whether they use Russian products and services.”

“If your personal laptop uses Kaspersky AV or other products, it is highly unlikely to be directly targeted and it is safe to turn on and use at the moment.”

The uncertainty surrounds whether Russian companies will be sanctioned and whether the company continues to update its product to ensure the best protection for their British clients, and for many companies, such issues are proving not to be worth the risk, especially in regards to cyber security.


Whether you’re utilising Kaspersky anti-virus software in your business or not, the importance of security is paramount as 2021 saw over 60% of SMEs experience some sort of cyber breach.  

Traditional antivirus is no longer enough to stop the latest threats, with modern threats making enormous advances including memory-based attacks and zero-day malware, traditional defences can now easily be bypassed. 

To stop these modern threats, we recommend endpoint protection that makes use of the very latest defences such as machine learning and anti-ransomware protection.
