Extended Endpoint Protection, part of Alert Logic Essentials

This is pretty good AV product - lightweight, easy to install, and easy on system resources. It will take some getting used to on the end user side, it doesn't scan in a traditional way, and it does not have a taskbar icon so it hard to know if it's working or installed. My only complaint would be the false positives which I know every AV system has, but the problem with Barkly is that it alerts the users with a message (which they freak out about) and it alerts IT with an email. Again, not a major issue, but it can be annoying until it is overridden. The override process is super easy though, so its again, not a big deal.

Sophos Intercept X

Sophos Intercept X is what I would consider the premier antivirus, anti-malware, anti-ransomware software on the market today. It is easy to stand up and deploy thanks to the management side being in the cloud - there's just a small download that can be deployed via script to any computer on your domain. It scales easily from small businesses all the way up to large enterprises and comes in at a cost-effective price point for anyone along that spectrum.

Pros

Extended Endpoint Protection, part of Alert Logic Essentials

  • Stops programs from making changes to users' system - this can be hit or miss, but I'd rather have a false positive and have to override it, then a virus on my systems.
  • The override system for false positives is very simple and easy to use - if a program throws up a flag, it is very easy to tell Barkly to leave it alone and it will do this network-wide, which is nice for things like updates.
  • Very lightweight, small install and leaves almost no footprint on your system. Also system resource utilization is very light.

Sophos Intercept X

  • Sophos is a little too good at DLP. But it is indeed very good at not allowing our data to leave our endpoints without strict adherence to policy.
  • Sophos is very good at protecting endpoints against viruses and other malware.
  • Sopho is really good at informing us of what is happening on our endpoints. OOTB reporting is way better than expected.

Cons

Extended Endpoint Protection, part of Alert Logic Essentials

  • There is no visible icon that it is installed unless you go into Add/Remove programs, locally you would not know its there.
  • If an update is installed (i.e. Windows Update) and Barkly flags it, you will get SPAMMed with alerts until it is overridden. An easy fix but can be annoying if you are on your way in and not at the office yet.
  • Reporting is a bit lit in the Admin console - installs, and updates, but not much else.
  • Getting better, but when they update their product, there wasn't much warning originally. A bit unsettling when you log into your console and see every one of your end users out-of-date.

Sophos Intercept X

  • The migration from on-prem sophos to cloud sophos, could have been a little more seamless
  • Would love to get more insight on what was blocked or flagged and what it was trying to do
  • Better and more granular feature management from group policies

Most of the support reps are fantastic. There have been a few though that have had to be escalated via Account Manager when they haven't followed up but this is a rare instance, and often followed up by the Support Manager for APAC.

Best thing was the help pushing out via group policy and was able to get instructions for that on sophos site

Alternatives Considered

Extended Endpoint Protection, part of Alert Logic Essentials

I've found Barkly to be much better than these products at protecting my systems. It does not require the horsepower that these do to run. It uses systems resources well. It protects well. It alerts and updates well. This is a good AV system to have on your endpoints and is a sound financial investment if you are looking to protect your assets from virus/malware/ransomware.
Nathan Venno | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sophos Intercept X

Best in class... PERIOD... Bit Defender is a good AV product by itself, but it lacks in Next Gen Heuristic detection. It has allowed malware to get past it in our client environments, even with Admin permissions restricted. Sophos is hands down a superior product when paired with Intercept X. Again, if you don't buy the whole stack, you're selling yourself (and your security) short. We live in a world where security is no longer a single product

Return on Investment

Extended Endpoint Protection, part of Alert Logic Essentials

  • Decently priced for AVs
  • Has protected against several viruses, and that right there is enough to warrant purchase, any virus stopped is money saved
  • Low impact on users, so they aren't complaining of slowness on their computers when scanning (it does not scan traditionally)
Nathan Venno | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sophos Intercept X

  • It keeps us safe from malware attacks, thus giving us peace of mind to focus on our work, thereby increasing productivity
  • It provides protection against ransomware attacks that are usually very expensive to resolve once they occur and usually leads to loss of important files and resources.
