Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

  • Before we had Intercept X, we had several infections of ransomware. Since that time it has stopped at least 10 attempts, saving us thousands of man-hours and hundreds of thousands of dollars.
  • By decreasing the time needed for malware remediation, it has saved us the cost of .25 FTE in the IT department.
  • Initial setup was cumbersome and cost us .1 FTE in additional costs the first year.

  • This product costs almost exactly the same as it's predecessor that we were using, which was an on-prem Sophos Web Appliance. However, the newly separated "Windows Server" endpoint license is a lot more expensive than the old endpoint device license on the web appliance. So we are now paying about 4x as much for coverage on a Windows Server as we did before we changed to Sophos Intercept X simply because Sophos created a new license (and a different client. It was the same client as PCs before now) that is specific to Windows Servers and we decided to buy a few. I'll admit that the new Server client covers more areas than the PC client so that's how the price is justified.
  • We've had LOTS of evidence that Sophos Intercept X has protected us from all manner of malware, ransomware, viruses and data loss. We would never ever be without it because it's value as an antivirus and anti-malware product is inestimable. We don't have a clue how much time and money we would have lost without it, but as you all know, we MUST have a good antivirus. Sophos Intercept X is just that, a good antivirus.

  • Positive: Sophos has allowed the organization many forms of proof of protection for auditing and compliance.
  • Positive: Sophos has detected and automatically cleaned suspicious files and blocked malicious activity for several assets.
  • Negative: End-user feedback of intensive scanning and high CPU/Memory usage by Sophos.

  • Intercept should be integrated with AV as one solution but I think Sophos generate more revenue from selling 2 products.
  • We appreciate Sophos Central it is a fantastic product ut require some reporting enhancement.
  • I wish intercept X has the mechanism to analyze the ransomware, malware & other attacks to give deeper insight into the issue (when, where and how).

  • We have had an outbreak threat that started to encrypt our files and we were able to stop and roll back the changes it made automatically using Sophos.
  • We have had a few instances where it was blocking Java programs but we allowed those on the interface so the work by our NOC techs could continue without issues.

  • Sophos provides a clear defense for all AV threats with a minimal input form engineering at a very reasonable price point
  • ROI was quick with saved engineering time, risk reduction and being cloud based meat no overhead for on premise solutions
  • The added benefit of then using Sophos to monitor internet access and usage was icing on the cake providing added benefits with little additional overheads

  • Customers on Sophos have yet to manage to encrypt a PC with malware. It's that simple - we don't have to fight those fires anymore...

  • Sophos Endpoint Protection has made life easy for me, as an administrator. It is easily deployed, configured and maintained.
  • This software has saved a lot of time. It stays up to date reliably, which saves me from having to go investigate why the latest definitions package was not installed.
  • We have not had any security issues since it was deployed years ago. That alone makes Sophos Endpoint Protection a winner!

  • 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.
