Sophos Central Device Encryption (formerly SafeGuard)

From my experience Sophos could give us a proper email security solution at that time. However once the requirements of the security gets bigger such as machine learning, at that time we do not find it in Sophos. Despite all, we are really satisfied with the Sophos email security solution that we use.

It is well suited to environments that are using multiple platforms, or operating systems. The compatibility of Winzip with various OS's is really good. It is also well suited for organizations that are looking for something that is easy to use from an end-user perspective and doesn't really require training to use.It is less suited for organizations that need/want a low/no-cost compression solution. This would not be Winzip, as they don't offer any "free" options, only paid one. It is also less suited for environments that need to have a solution that will create the smallest size compression file(s) possible. There are some other competitors on the market that is a bit better than Winzip at doing this.

  • One area of improvement is with regards to pricing and the mass market. Since there is no free options for the software (as compared to some other compression programs), this may be a disadvantage to many organizations that are looking for a low/no-cost solution.
  • Another area of improvement can be to its ability to create the smallest file sizes, as compared to what some other compression programs can do. It is not the top contender in this case, but improvements can be made in the future.

Listen, nobody can get a perfect 10 (just ask your boss at review time, you can't say you are a 10 because then you'd have nothing to strive for!). WinZip's Support team knows their product, which is a fantastic thing to hear, unlike when you call giant companies (Microsoft, Vipre, and Norton) and their turnaround in their support center is so disgusting that their Support team only knows how to read off of a script

Alternatives Considered

Sophos Central Device Encryption (formerly SafeGuard)

At that time, we chose Sophos based on the reputation and our partnership with our partner. And in general Sophos could give us more benefit than other competitors with the similar solution. However we do not feel comfortable to disclose information about comparison with other solutions. Despite that, we think Sophos could deliver our requirements very well with the cost that were reasonable for us.

Also, I have tested and used the following similar programs:WinRAR7-ZipHow Winzip stacks about against these similar compression programs, and others on the market is Winzip has been around for a very long time (longer than a lot of others), so there is something to be said for its widespread use in industry and organizations around the world. It is a solid product, in terms of the capabilities it has, and the performance of it.It also has a better Graphical User Interface (GUI) than many others on the market. This has helped greatly to save time in is to use the program right away, and not to have consult documentation on how to use the product.
