Number One and Smartest Solution
Kommentare: Best solution that you can even sell over other AVs as an add on even if they are on a current contract.
Vorteile: It is the best software I have found for COMPLETE ransomware protection.
Nachteile: Price for Endpoint, Intercept X and EDR all adds up fast and can scare clients.

Simplified Endpoint Protection
Kommentare: We installed to tackle the ransomware issues happening around the world.
Vorteile: Its a very simple application with a cloud based administration portal. We use it along with our XG Firewall which helps to provide a 360 degree secure network. It very active and detects harmful files quickly and sends an email notification to the admin.
Nachteile: Nothing as such. The software does the work as described. However to do that it runs several processes.

Simple to use
Kommentare: Really decent to use, generally sits quietly in the background on the endpoints but has plenty of info/reports available in the cloud management page.
Vorteile: The GUI for administration is relatively simple to use
Nachteile: Network rollout was a bit more intricate than it needed to be

Easy to deploy inclusive protection
Kommentare: The software was very easy to install and configure. We have not had any issues with viruses or malware. We also have not had anything flagged by other solutions we have tested alongside Intercept X.
Vorteile: For such a sophisticated software approach it was surprising how low a footprint Intercept X was on our computers and networks.
Nachteile: The concept of non-database driven antivirus/antispyware solutions takes some time to wrap your (and others) heads around, but once you look into the process it is quite impressive.

Great protection, however...
Kommentare: Overall it is a great protection option if you are looking for a big company, depending on your work, purpose of it and if you don't mind having to constantly request access to blocked applications... other than that, good product.
Vorteile: Sophos offers great overall protection, specially for big companies and networks. It is worth the money and value.
Nachteile: Only con I found with this product, which is to me a big pet peeve, is the need to contact our IT department because Sophos tends to block several applications and software used on my work space. Only way to get authorized to continue with my work is by contacting IT (product administration) so I can get allowance to continue through these checkpoints.

Easy, light weight, watch the updates.
Kommentare: Very happy, it kept everything running well for over 3 years now.
Vorteile: This caused little to no interference or slowdowns to the system. No macbook protected by it ever developed an infection.
Nachteile: It was not usually the scanner that hogged resourced, but its updater. The SophosUpdater consumed the majority of energy, disc read/writes, and bandwidth for every machine. The only incident I had with it slowing a computer down was when we had to backup and move off of a device. Then it insisted on pre-scanning everything that was "tar-balled" dragging a 45 minute operation out to 4 hours and refused to halt or quit that scan.

Excellent Endpoint Protection with Cloud Management
Kommentare: Sophos Endpoint protection is fairly priced and adds piece of mind to device security, but requires the addition of remote access to complete the product.
Vorteile: Sophos Endpoint Protection is managed via Sophos Central, the cloud management portal for nearly all Sophos Products. It allows rapid deployment of Sophos Endpoint Software to MacOS and Windows, and reports and allows policies and users to be centrally managed. It's very good at catching nearly all issues.
Nachteile: Occasionally its not so good and some issues still require physical access to the device to remove the issue.

Sophos Endpoint - Keeps you Safe
Kommentare: Overall, our experience has been. Sophos has allowed us to see when we are having an issue with a workstation and to remedy it ASAP.
Moving to this cloud based solution has been great.
-Adding machines has been easy.
-Getting emails right away when a machine falls out of compliance.
-You can start a scan of a workstation from the online admin console.
Few things we like least:
-Some setting is hard to find.
-The Tamper Protection password is a per machine password. Login to Sophos, find the machine, and then get the tamper pasword. would have been easier if you could set a password instead.

Great End point protection!
Kommentare: Experience has been great. This was a much needed upgrade from their previous product.
Vorteile: Intercept X has been an outstanding endpoint protection platform for our organization. It is a very much needed upgrade over the previous Sophos endpoint product.
Nachteile: So far our experience has been great with this product. We haven't run into any issues. Looking forward to continued protection this product provides.

Real endpoint security solution
Kommentare: The anti-theft feature of this solution helps me to find my lost devices which helps a lot in saving my time and also my important databases including all files and folders.
Vorteile: I have been using this security platform for years and getting effective services. Its program is easy to operate and keeps my system secure and protected from all harm attacks. I feel secure and about my important data. The thing I like is the user-friendly environment of this software.
Nachteile: There is nothing major problem about this endpoint program. It is working great and giving proper security.

Easy to implement and manage. Great for SMB
Kommentare: As a SMB with a small IT team supporting a midsize organization. We are partial to products that are quick to deploy and requires little day to day maintenance. However we also take security seriously and required a product we could trust to do so. We selected the Sophos cloud product from the Sophos Endpoint Security. It had a quick learning curve and deployment time was minimal. We've also had consistently positive feedback from our users. The alerts are meaningful and we've been able to apply policy based rules on all our users, having a complete adoption. This is a great product for SMB, however larger organisations may require more customization and should be sure to test this product proper prior to selection to see if it suits their specific needs.
Great cloud based product, with an easy and intuitive management interface.
Was very fast to deploy the clients and setup policies.
Integrates with other Sophos products in the management interface, making it easy to manage all your security solutions one place.
Great price point compared to features and functionality.
Low resource footprint on most workstations.
Sophos isn't consistent with which identity solution they support. Some requiring Azure AD and others on-premise AD. To solve this, you need to split the Sophos products over two web management interfaces, which isn't smart or intuitive.
Sophos support can sometimes be a bit slow getting back to you, but seems to be improving.
Features are super easy to implement, but it sometimes comes at the cost of transparency.

Solid Virus / Malware Protection. We love the cloud interface.
Kommentare: Saved money and improved our system security.
Vorteile: We have been using Sophos Endpoint Protection for about 2 years now and we love it. The best part is the ability to control our Virus protection settings from a central webpage. We use it for more than virus protection we also use it to limit our corporate users internet access. The feature we love it the ability to select categories (Violence, Drinking, Entertainment) This added an additional layer of security. The dashboard is great it gives us a quick look at the status of our devices. We know that all of our end users and servers are protected. We have enabled email noticications so we will get an alert that there is an Issue that IT needs to look into . Tha best part is the license is per user not machine. So some of our IT guys have 2-3 computers that all are protected with out the cost of additinoal licenses.
Very few Cons sometimes you have to dig a little to get to a setting in the cloud console. Also, the support is generally a long wait and the first tier isn't very knowledgeable. Luckily we don't call
support a lot. I really wish i could buy the product direct and not have to go through a third-party reseller.

Strong Protection and Centrally Managed Make For A Great Experience
Kommentare: We wanted a A/V solution that provided AI and cloud management.
Vorteile: Sophos Endpoint has been a great addition to our organization. It makes AV management far simpler than we could have imagined. With a centralized interface, we can manage PC's and deal with any issues with little knowledge to the end user. It integrates wonderfully with our AD and our Sophos XG Firewalls. The protection it provides is fantastic.
Nachteile: Occasionally we do encounter some issues with updates not always reenabling the endpoint. but it's rare and fixed easily. I do wish there was an easy way to push out the installer. Support from Sophos is slow, can be on hold for hours.

SOPHOS--My all in one
SOPHOS provides a very easy to use interface for both their UTM/AV. I am usually in these products once a day if not more. Ran a test Ransomware scenario with a KnowBe4(designed for that) product and SOPHOS immediately isolated the test WS from the network. Everything. It was similar to pulling the network cable.
That quick. In fact it took a while to get the WS back online after SOPHOS cleaning. Recommend
Vorteile: SOPHOS is a replacement to several solutions we have used in the past. I am using SOPHOS UTM for my firewall and SOPHOS antivirus as well as using wireless access points/Mail management/et al.. The management of this product is extremely easy to use considering it is a web interface and they have centralized all their products.
Nachteile: Seriously...Probably the cost but overall not so bad considering the licensing and length of years we usually purchase.

The best endpoint anti-virus money can buy
Kommentare: I have been a Sophos customer since 1997, but I check and compare them every couple of years. The price for what you get is great and the features you get are first class and award winning. InterceptX is probably the best endpoint security tool I have!
Conistantly comes top in all anti-virus tests - detects more than competitor products
Sophos Intercept X anti-ransomware is a God-send and will role back any zero-day encryption attacks
Sophos Sandstorm allows checking of attachments in a cloud-based virtual environment in Sophos labs to test each unseen attachment.
Sophos Central makes admin so much easier
Being able to block non-encrypted USB sticks and other peripherals is a nice feature.
Sophos Enterprise admin is a little dated. Sophos Central admin is much easier and nicer
Sophos Central doesn't tie up with Sophos SG Next Gen Firewall, but it does play nicely with the newer Sophos XG.

Its a good software for big organisation to protect the systems and monitor the internet usage.
It is worth to buy.
Easy monitoring the client from central server.
We are able to set customized download limit to the end users.
We could censor the unwanted websites at our campus.
Client can check their daily usage limit and use accordingly.
Sophos portal is very easy to manage and it can be accessed in remote login also.
There are some drawbacks in end user point of view.
In an organisation the employee will roam around the campus and there are some occasions will happen to login in multiple computers and it is not supported since the admins block multiple logins.
Data limit is really embarrassing.
Authentication is automatically signed off if the systems is kept idle for sometime.
I think Sophos is bit late in updating the databases.

Great AV solution and effective against Malware
Kommentare: We use it for protecting our servers. It was cost inhibitive for use to use on all workstations.
Vorteile: It has a proven track record of malware resistance and its forensics or threat analysis is great. It can help narrow down exactly what happened and what files were effectively part of the launch and spread.
Nachteile: The biggest issue is more the cost for schools and so I am currently only able to deploy it on our Windows serves.

Sophos, best protection
Kommentare: Sophos supplies top security with maximum functionality
Vorteile: Sophos allows us to protect all the devices on our domain and keep them free from virus'. Sophos comes with a simple installer that can be used on either Windows or Mac OSX, this allows for quick, easy installations so we can quickly configure our devices to ensure less downtime. Sophos allows us to create multiple different profiles depending on the user or department. Once the profiles are configured, the permissions will be applied against the device instantly. We can also approve individual websites or applications, this allows us to keep a close eye on devices across the group whilst ensuring security is tight.
Nachteile: We have noticed with some hardware, although the are the same model, Sophos seems to block one but not the other. Obviously the hardware differs slightly but Sophos should recognise the model. Due to the number of users we have, this is a constant maintenance task.

Our preferred endpoint (and server) protection product
Kommentare: Overall I am very happy with this product and confident of the protection it provides.
Powerful and feature rich protection product that does not noticeably impact system performance.
Support is excellent, once engaged the engineer is staying with you until the issue is resolved. They don't even mind if you add a couple of additional problems into the mix.
Includes their Intercept X protection with the advanced version. This is powerful stuff, anti-exploit and ransomware with root cause analysis. The portal to manage it all is easy to use as well. Very happy with this product and recommending it to everyone.
Not the cheapest on the market.
The cloud version does not have a push-deployment tool like the old fashioned on-premise version does. But once deployed it is a joy.

Great for granular control
Kommentare: Have not used Intercept X, but saw a demonstration. It looks like a good product that can isolate an infected computer and allow deep investigations of what where and wehn it happened.
Vorteile: Easy to setup and push out to Endpoints. Love the ease of setting up Web control and application control. Clone the base policy make changes to it and apply it to one computer or all computers and servers. Like the fact you can set application controls as well to allow users to add .exe files or disallow them.
Nachteile: Reporting of computers is a little flaky. When a computer updates, it disables certain services which throws an alert. When the service restarts, you have to manually clear the alert.

Great and reliable antivirus
Vorteile: Network security is very important to my company, and one of the widely used and recommended antivirus programs that users need to have installed in order to remote VPN is Sophos, so that says a lot to me about the reliability of the software. So far I have had no issues and have not been infected by any viruses since using the tool. It seems to be a very robust tool and works to protect my files, downloads, browsers, and network activity. The settings are also easy to change.
Nachteile: The cloud based configuration is interesting.. Maybe I'm just not used to it, but if one where to have no internet connection then you can't modify settings. But then at the same time, the cloud based settings allow one to globally modify all the clients that are on the account, so I could see that being a powerful feature.

One of the best security suites
Mike lester R.
Kommentare: Fingers crossed, I have never experienced a glitch in our security after deploying Sophos to our endpoints. I hope it continues to do so.
Vorteile: What I liked about Sophos is the enterprise readiness of the solution to provide an all in one solution for the entire security landscape. It is a very robust and scalable solution for our company and with other companies I know who have deployed the solution. It even has its own Data Leak Protection mechanism.
Nachteile: Maybe the least liked about the software is the resources it eats up, when I have used it on an older machine (laptop). It really bogs down the system to the point there is not much to do while the program is doing its thing.
Bewertet am 11.7.2018
We haven't had any trouble, I guess Sophos is working? :-)
Vorteile: The great thing is our users don't get interfered by working while being fully protected. I think it's nice that we can enable device control. There are a lot of external people coming in and without some overview of what they connect to our devices we would've probably gotten in trouble a lot if it wasn't for Sophos
Nachteile: We've contacted the customer support a few times and I feel this isn't on par with the security the software gives. We get an exhausting list of things to try to fix the problem but when it doesn't there isn't a real followup.. We end up testing ourselves or finding the fix online.

Very good malware protection software
Kommentare: This software provides round the clock security to endpoint devices whilst providing good report generation to the device administrators
Vorteile: It is a cloud based endpoint protection software which means virus definitions and other major updates are done easily provided internet connections is available. The anti-tamper feature that protects you from ransomware attacks as it prevents file types from being changed. It also provides extensive reporting of the endpoints activities to the administrator on the sophos central and also emails of potential security threats are sent to the endpoint administrator.
Nachteile: I cant think of any problems i have with this software so far my experience has been very good
