If you are looking to get an easy to manage end point protection software, this is for you. You can deploy the software directly or send emails to the specified users to get them set up with the software. It also helps that the software notifies you if something goes wrong on someone machine, say if the software stops running or is out of date.

Sophos Intercept-X is well suited for any environment big or small. There is even a home version that is free that I highly recommend for anyone at home. If you are looking for endpoint protection that is centrally managed, catches everything, and has many features this is the product for you.

Sophos Intercept X is well suited for ensuring endpoints are secure from viruses, ransomeware, exploites and data loss prevention. Our Post COVID world requires many of our users to still work remotely. Some work in public spaces and unsecure networks. Having Sophos Intercept X helps ensure our company resources are safe and our users are not exposed to malicious software.

Sophos Intercept X is great for any organization to have a standard level of security applied to the end users' machines. We have remote employees, and they often attempt to download software to better accomplish their daily task; there has been a time when Sophos Intercept X has notified me or the IT director and offered to auto-remediate the issue by removing the software.

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.

This is the best product for deployment in areas with limited connectivity. This is not the best for deployment in environments where active software development allows risky behavior.

I believe it is the best-integrated solution for ransomware protection for the price point. This makes it suitable for small, medium, or large businesses. The endpoint bundle, including the intercept x, has a very competitive price, and may be cheaper than solutions that offer less. Security is a very important aspect of running a business today, and having something you can count on brings peace of mind.

Small/Medium businesses that are email heavy can rest easy knowing they're getting great value product with extremely good protection. It catches a wide range of ransomware variants.

Large businesses with a large number of devices may struggle, as there's a lot of detail captured with individual threats and troubleshooting is often time consuming.

It works just as well as any other modern antivirus and it has a really nice web console that I find easy to use. I like the fact that the built-in OOTB stuff that you start with is really secure and pretty much complete right OOTB, so it's easy to get going fast. But I do not like that the sales and implementation staff did not make it clear that end users would no longer be able to write to USB or floppy (even when the operation that they want to do does not violate the DLP policy or the peripheral device policy in Sophos Intercept X) unless we turn off secure boot in the UEFI of each PC. That's something that has to be done manually on each PC and it's a pain. It makes sense that users can't drag data from a network share to a USB to write, that is not a secure operation, and I like that, but users should be able to copy and paste documents (that they own) from a folder on their own local PC to a USB stick without having to have someone from IT change their boot settings in their UEFI/BIOS. It's only doable for us because we have very few people that need to be able to transport files on physical media.

Sophos works well in smaller organizations where the number of assets to be protected can be managed. If assets are not higher-end technology/memory, Sophos will "slow down" the asset with its scanning and detecting. There are, however, global settings to "tune" the product and disable scanning from files, folders, and processes that are known to be good. This does greatly alleviate utilization problems.

We have been using Sophos AV for the past 5 years, we love it and it is light on the work stations. Once Intercept X launched we purchased only for our workstation a week later we got hit twice with 2 different users and it was fantastic, no data was lost, the laptops got disconnected from the network, the team managed to clean the infection and no data was lost. a year later we deploy it on the server after testing the effect on the server performance and functionality (which has a light effect on the performance). 6 months later one of our physician's accounts was hacked and the hackers tried to deploy Phobos ransomware and were unsuccessful and it also blocked the network access.

We are very pleased with Intercept X it was an investment worth every penny.

I like it in our environment. 2e paired it with Sophos Intercept X for added protection where it detects unusual changes and rollback from changes that threats have made. All the information is on the same interface as well easy to use and deploy. Not sure what scenario it would not be able to be used in.

Sophos is particularly well suited to small engineering teams where a minimum amount of training is required and ongoing monitoring is simple and easy to conduct. The interface is intuitive (sometimes a little cluttered), easy to use and easy to quickly identify any potential issues and vulnerabilities that may be detected. When you have detected an issue, isolation and/or cleanup of the device is very simple with just a few mouse clicks and false positives are kept to a minimum

It`s ideal for small to big IT shops where a trained individual can pretty much oversee the endpoint health and get real-time data on their security posture.
Due to its centralized management nature and immense visibility into endpoints well-being, it requires constant monitoring and timely reaction (like any other security tool) which can be a daunting task if not done regularly as it easily piles up into thousands of action items that could take days/weeks to complete. With more visibility comes more responsibility of-course.

We use it everywhere, including mixed environments / Mac and Linux deployments. Where it may not be well suited is for extremely budget-conscious customers who are not willing to adopt the whole solution stack - that said, you get what you pay for and Sophos is cost competitive against other solutions.

I think this software has a place at both large and small organizations. It is easily able to be scaled to any number of clients. It is great if you want to employ centralized management of your security software. It is great in scenarios where the IT staff simply does not have the time to troubleshoot software that should just work. I cannot think of a scenario where this software would not be beneficial!

It is ranked highly by Gartner for a reason, the cost and performance are great. They stay up to date with virus engines. Every company really should have anti-virus even Mac computers. We run Sophos on sensitive computers too because it is not hard on the CPU and is pretty silent when its working well

Sophos Endpoint Protection is great for smaller and midsize companies. It offers well-rounded protection capabilities while also being user-friendly enough that small and medium companies can easily adopt and maintain it while offering a great overview of your devices. For larger enterprises, integrating with a directory seems to be essential to allow for reconciliation of user accounts.
