Will Sandboxie be included in the acquisition? There's no mention of it, but since Sandboxie now is an Invincea product, then Sandboxie might become part of Sophos.

A great move by Sophos. This plan will greatly fill the rift that separated Sophos from many others because of its weaker definitions and protection (Intercept X aside).
It will be a great package after another upgrade Sophos made this time.
Only that Invincea won't be available separately for commercial use. It looked fantastic.

I do hope they keep the free version of Sandboxie :rolleyes:
Yes, they should! It's a great tool for non-Comodo users

i think Sophos was more interested by the AI thingy of Invincea than sandboxie, at least it is what i understood.
Appears so. When they have an AI solution to deliver to the corporates, they shouldn't be bragging about their sandboxie thing as a complementary feature :)
