McAfee Advanced Threat Defense

McAfee Advanced Threat Defense is good for large organizations where there are many users and profiles that all need the same permissions and settings. It provides a fairly seamless experience and is effective at stopping threats with little input from end-users. That being said, if there are many profiles or individuals that all need specific settings, McAfee Advanced Threat Defense does work, just cumbersome.

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

McAfee Advanced Threat Defense

  • Automatic updates.
  • Runs in the background.
Anonymous | 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

McAfee Advanced Threat Defense

  • Can be heavy.
  • Not easy to override.

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

Personally, I have only called our internal IT team about needing changes to permissions, not McAfee itself, but our IT team can make the changes though it seems to take them longer than I would think it needs to take. As someone who administers a different program, with different permissions, I would feel they should be able to make the exceptions faster and easier.

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

McAfee Advanced Threat Defense

Zscaler Internet Access is lighter and easier to customize for smaller groups than McAfee Advanced Threat Defense. Personally, I have never called customer support for either product but I have heard that Zscaler has better, more responsive customer service as well. Both have an automatic launch upon boot-up feature and both block threats well.

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

McAfee Advanced Threat Defense

  • Automatically turning on means no time used starting it or forgotten turn ons.
  • Ease of profile setting saves time.
Anonymous | 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.
