Qualcomm has signed Sophos to provide cybersecurity solutions for the next wave of 5G-enabled PCs.

Announced on Tuesday, the American manufacturer said Sophos, a British security company, would provide Intercept X endpoint protection software for 5G PCs.

Sophos will provide endpoint protection for always-on, always-connected PCs.

“The combination of Sophos Intercept X with Snapdragon compute platforms will provide users next-generation security through an always-on, always-connected PC environment,” the companies say.

Sophos Intercept X is endpoint detection and threat response software, including the prevention of malicious code deployment such as ransomware.

According to the firm, the Snapdragon processor series — used to power light, 5G-supportive PCs — will come in useful in combating security blackspots as the software will leverage connected standby functions. 

The cybersecurity company says this will mean that “security investigations have a few unknown features as the data will not be missed due to offline devices.”

Also, Qualcomm’s (AI) engine, which is used to improve communication, play, and graphics, will be released by Intercept X for optimal use.

Security, too, should start at the hardware level. Sophos’ solution will be used at the root of systems relying on Snapdragon PCs to strengthen “cryptographic integrity.”

“Working with Sophos, we take device security to a new level by improving their industry-leading protection with AI that quickly detects the presence of a threat in our solutions,” notes Miguel Nunes, executive director of Product Management at Qualcomm. “We are pleased that Sophos has transformed computer use to the next level of business security at the 5G Snapdragon compute.”

Intercept X for Snapdragon platforms will be available in the second half of 2021.
