Sophos Intercept X is easy to manage and deploy under your business. I think it is comparable to BitDefend with the ability to send out deployment via email or directly add it to the computer. I have noticed that Bitdefender seems to eat a lot of resources during its scans which can be a turn-off, this can be the same for the other two options I chose.

Webroot Endpoint Protection 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.

I personally found Sophos Intercept X GUI to be easy to use. The agent is easy to deploy on client machines and runs in the background silently. It has a very good virus, malware scan engine that picks out a high percentage of malicious software. The price was also very competitive to what is out in industry.

Sophos is much more user friendly and scalable for partners who wish to [centralize] all security across the IT industry, from email security, server security, phish threat management and more.

We have used Avast, AVG, Panda, Sophos' original antivirus product, and Symantec before and it is better than each of them. The cloud console is the star of the show and it dramatically reduces the cost and effort needed to install the product. Other products were only single-instance installs, needed a dedicated on-premise server, or didn't protect against ransomware or newer viruses.

It is one of the only products that will scan all code in memory and arbitrary data for malicious behaviors.

It provides more features for the same price. These added features differentiate Sophos from the rest of the pack, making it a better solution. Also, the ability to integrate with your Sophos firewall if you have one adds another level of integration and protection. This integration also provides centralized management for both the endpoint and the firewall.

We didn’t evaluate any other products. I used Sophos at a previous company and when I started here, they were using the on-prem version. We immediately migrated to central and haven’t looked back. I am aware of the competitors, but once you are comfortable with a quality product that is easy to use and they continue to make advances, it takes a lot to change.

Sophos offered better value for money whilst beating the above products on detection and prevention. The GUI is fantastic and easy to use and works seamlessly on top of other features like DLP, application control and web monitoring. I would recommend getting the XG firewall as well, as the suite available from Sophos is top notch!

Sophos Intercept X is a little less expensive than the comparable package from Trend Micro and a little more expensive than a comparable package from Symantec, but in my opinion, it's easier to operate and it's got better centralized controls than both of the others. But the primary reason why I selected Sophos Intercept X this time is because I already had an on-prem Sophos web appliance and they had a nifty scripting tool that migrated all of my endpoints at a given site (we did the migration to the new client on a site-by-site phased plan), literally within minutes, with a click. It was very easy to update the endpoint client using this scripted migration tool. So if you already have an older Sophos client running on your endpoints and you want to upgrade to Sophos Intercept X, holy moly, it's easy. I am now wondering if the other solutions also have problems with secure boot being turned on but I have not asked around.

Trend Micro offered similar protection, however at the time did not offer EDR as a solution. The big benefit to Trend Micro was the capability to push out the installation of the agent to assets within the Trend Micro console, eliminating the need for a GPO or deployment solution. Sophos was chosen as the need for EDR in an evolving industry was a deciding factor.

We found Sophos is a full suit in one, easy to deploy, manage and very effective.

Sophos I feel is a better product upon installation we had a few systems that reported threats that ESET did not catch. Sophos also has multiple other products that we were able to bundle together and still have one interface to do. Intercept X, Endpoint Protection, and Phishing Training there are more products but this is what we started with.

Sophos is by far the simplest of the products to setup and going in a very short period of time at a very similar price point. Trend is overly complex and relied on an appliance for each ESX node meaning you lose one appliance and then you lose protection across multiple devices. Installation and setup is complex and takes to much time. Traps is simple to use and setup, but still needs a lot of work on the interface and the ability to manage multiple policies is just not there, yet.

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...

In our analysis we discovered that for the price and feature set, Sophos was able to rise above the rest. Pricing is always a large consideration, however it isn't the only consideration - the feature set that Sophos Endpoint Protection provided over its competitors made the decision to go with Sophos an easy choice.

We used to use Symantec Endpoint Protection. At the time we were using it (it may very well be different by now), it required a bit more maintenance and we were constantly having issues with definitions not being downloaded as well as issues updating the software itself. We really needed a set it and forget it type solution that allows us to focus our attention on our other admin tasks.

We were looking at both 4 years ago before we chose Sophos. We picked Sophos because of the full breadth of the products they offer and how involved they are with the security community. The product is a stable and reliable software that protects us well from advanced threats

Sophos had the most mature cloud solution, mixing good work flows with strong capabilities. While many of the endpoint protection solution are very comparable when on-premise, it has been our experience that the cloud solutions can differ widely in terms of capabilities and functionality. We ended up selecting Sophos both due to superior management but also due to a very competitive price point. In all fairness it should be said that all vendors were quite aggressive in terms of pricing and willing to reduce quite heavily from the list price.

When we started to use Sophos the other solution didn’t have all the requested features, like a proxy server that we needed. And we changed an endpoint after that a virus spread in the network, also with [an] updated endpoint.
