Jamf Protect will always have day 1 support for new OS updates, which is an amazing feature. The reporting could use a bit more work and the actions it captures are far beyond anything we would need, but it does that really well too. There are plenty of scenarios where I will gladly recommend this to other institutions. There are not many where I wouldn't. Maybe only if you have a hybrid environment, where licensing another endpoint protection may be beneficial to the budget.

Sophos
Licensing is incredibly easy to renew - and to adjust based on usage. The interface of cloud-based management is fantastic and easy to navigate as well. Syncs up with Active Directory to get users/security groups and such for easily differentiating policies to various users. Being able to pinpoint exactly where a threat infiltrated a system (what it talked to once it did so) is a massive feature in responding to online threats. Depending on deployment size - the cost could be an issue for some smaller organizations.

Jamf Protect is much lighter on system usage. It also has exclusive access to the threat protection baked into macOS. This lets Jamf Protect leverage the great work Apple is doing, and gives admins a way to extend that as well as view reports. Webroot was often missing things that were threats. SentinelOne was a bit more resource heavy. Solarwinds...err..."N-Able"...do I really need to say anything?

Does a great job protecting our systems. Email security has more features and easy to manage. You don't have to have your own server to run the endpoint security. Auto updates the endpoint and servers. With a Managed detect response team that does human threat hunting. Overall an awesome product.
