Its middle of the road and should suit most applications well

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

ControlNow (Discontinued)

  • An instant scan of file level downloads so that introduction of a variant file is limited before the scan engine clears it.
  • Dashboard use of the agents available allows for near real-time review and action without directed access to the station.
John Stewart | TrustRadius Reviewer

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

ControlNow (Discontinued)

  • Dashboard refresh when you have over 100 end agents can be lagging at times
  • The agent install process has potential to hang without alert or warning unless your paying attention through the complete install
  • The silent install process can be problematic when dealing with large-scale networks with varied OS models
John Stewart | TrustRadius Reviewer

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

ControlNow more nimble and less impactful on the local PC
John Stewart | 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

ControlNow (Discontinued)

  • At current we are on build up and the ROI isnt a factor
John Stewart | 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.
