SafeGuard is deployed on all laptops to provide full disk encryption to protect our companies and clients data at all times. It also allows us to monitor that encryption status of all our company laptops.
  • Provides full disk encryption.
  • Provides monitoring for all laptops and tracks communication with our servers to ensure laptops are secure at all times.
  • Integrates with Windows seamlessly.
  • Data Recovery where the hard drive is having mechanical issues.
  • Expand policy management.
  • Performance of full disk encryption.
Enforcing full disk in encryption in a corporate or enterprise level IT department.

Not ideal if performance is critical, SSD hard drives can be used to mitigate performance.

We use Sophos for our email security. Together with Sophos partner we manage to use Sophos to encrypt certain emails. And we manage to use Sophos for the approval of the encrypted email. Before the email is sent to the recipient, the encrypted email will be quarantined. Once the IT Security gets the approval from the sender's Division Head, then IT Security releases the email. And the sender will receive the key for decryption, and sender needs to forward it to the recipient.
  • Email encryption, it can encrypt based on the criteria defined. We use regex for this to discover the content.
  • We can have a view of what is the content of the email being quarantined.
  • We use Sophos together with our Email Exchange
  • Sometimes Sophos response is slow
  • The regex we use is too complicated, probably need to have cotext based discovery or machine learning?
  • -
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's being used by the] Organization to protect data using the Safeguard SOPHOS disk encryption solution. Sophos disk encryption is implemented across the globe/within entities.
  • Easy disk encryption process
  • Administration and management is very easy
  • Value for money, as this does not require any special engineer to manage the Safeguard Sophos application
  • The recovery/response challenge is secure
  • It's ride on the Microsoft BIT Locker utility
  • In the event of disk response the challenge process is tedious
  • Incompatibility issues with some known branded laptops
  • The disk encryption time is very high
Well Suited
  • Large organization, centralized management
Less Appropriate
  • Cross-domain functional, trust relationship creates problem
