As a SIEM tool for investigations, Exabeam is the best in class. The AI assigns numeric values to observed logs them presents high scores to the analyst in a simple dashboard. We can see what is a real threat and ignore so many false positives. Exabeam is the best SIEM was used from an alert fatigue perspective. The simple interface allows other teams not just InfoSec to utilize the tool; helpdesk for asset diagnoses, HR for staffing questions, etc.

To be frank, this product is fairly expensive. So I would recommend this to companies that are mid-sized or larger to condone the cost of the purchase. It does save me a significant amount of time in my day - being able to glance at the dashboard and see if there are any outstanding issues that require my attention, as not much digging must be done to accomplish this. So for our company, with a short-staffed IT department, it's incredibly helpful to us. We also qualify for Educational pricing which brings the cost down - which helps tremendously
Read full review Pros Fast search times, unlike other competing solutions. The ability for engineers to obtain access to the command line interface for troubleshooting, at least for on-premise deployments. License is suitable for organisations with lots of logs to ingest. Hardware required for on premise deployments is well supported. Read full review Sophos Intercept X is great at preventing malware infections and rolling back their effects. I have seen this happen hundreds of times since we installed it When combined with Sophos Central, you have an easy to use dashboard where you can manage all installations from a single pane of glass. It's easy to deploy on machines and stays updated. Good reporting features including alerts sent to the admin if there's ever something wrong with it. Read full review Cons More and better drop-down menus, some items in threat hunter require you know subsets. Less dashboards, combine AA and DL without having separate logins. More complete playbooks are already built out. You have the structure set up for templates like malware and phishing, go further and completely build them out from start to finish, most companies would just use them and not personalize their configurations. Quarterly health checkup diagnostics of systems sent out to users. Read full review Sophos OOTB policies are very strict and they don't offer anything less strict without you creating new custom policies. I'm sure this is deliberate because the product starts you out in the safest way possible but it means that you will have lots of calls to your tech support desk when you first deploy it unless you do somewhat extensive testing beforehand. Sophos Intercept X is currently broken (at least the DLP component) by having secure boot turned on in the UEFI/BIOS. If any user wants to be able to write data to a USB drive or floppy from their PC (yes we still have a couple users who need to use floppies) we have to turn off secure boot on their PC, even if the DLP policy for that user/PC combination specifies that the user and PC are allowed to write to USB/floppy. This would be a very serious problem if it weren't for the fact that we have very few users who need to write files to USB. For us it's OK but I bet it would be a deal-breaker for others. I don't see a whole lot of evidence that Intercept X is any different than any other anti-virus, so maybe their admin alerts just don't clearly identify when they have identified a zero-day threat or maybe we just haven't had any zero-day threats.

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.

is not even in the same league as Sophos Intercept-X. I have tested and compared both sides by side, run simulations and it's not even close. Plus the Sophos central management is so much better. Easier to view user activities and apply policies and remediate threats. Sophos is the clear winner between these two products.
Read full review Return on Investment Reduced time to triage alerts. Reduced number of alerts which need escalation to senior tiers. The ability for analysts to quickly run playbooks for additional information and enrichment. Ability to retain data for longer periods for forensics purposes. Improved search performance compared with other SIEM solutions. Read full review Once our technical and commercial areas got certified, the ROI over the time spent, is great. Actual customers, and/or new ones with other tools, feel safe and advised, once they get in touch with us. When Sophos EndPoint is being compared against Web Management Tools (competitors), we have failed to deliver, nevertheless, there is a version of Sophos Central (Cloud) which achieves this requirement at 100% and more, since is Cloud Based (on AWS). We are grateful to be on Sophos "Radar" as a Platinum Partner, and "The Americas" valued partner, we have seen our business grow, thanks to this kind of technology, throughout the years.
