Sophos Intercept X is the end point proctection software we use at our company. We have been using this for over a year now and I have not had any problems. The portal is friendly and easy to use, it is easy to deploy to end users, and it barely takes any resources from the computers we are using. It also helps that the Sophos portal contains many other useful security features.

It is in my opinion, Sophos Intercept X is the most secure endpoint product on the market. I have used it for years and tell everyone I know that they need to be using it as well. Whether for home or business, Sophos Intercept X is my preferred endpoint and the only product I use. It's simple to deploy, easy to manage, and catches everything. I have run simulations against Sophos Intercept X and other products, and Sophos Intercept X always comes out.

We are in the healthcare industry and need to provide security for our users from malicious cyber attacks. These attacks include malware, viruses and ransomware. We have deployed the agent for all our users to ensure they are protected from the bad guys. Sophos Intercept X also has a data loss prevention component that allows us to monitor and detect when users are sharing information insecurely.

Sophos Intercept X is being used by our entire organization as endpoint management. It is very helpful and non-invasive to the end users. Sophos Intercept X is very responsive to any indication of a possible threat reaching the end user's machine. We have had no issues with the software and are very happy with it. The price for the product is perfect! Customer service is world class as well!

Being used as anti-virus for both customers and internally, to ensure security compliance and prevent ransomware on devices (including workstations and servers).

Sophos Intercept X is an all-in-one endpoint solution that has dramatically decreased malware and ransomware instances across our organization. Since we put it into place it has found thousands of potential infections that would have infected us via RATs, worms, emails, and malicious webpages. When you combine the power of Intercept X with the Sophos Central web console, it gives incredible administrative power to discover who the biggest problems are and then allows you to better target training and mitigation efforts where the problems originate.

Intercept X is being used by clients as an endpoint security agent. For new infections in the wild and partial threat matches, nothing is more aggressive.

We are using Sophos Intercept X across the whole organization, from POS devices at the restaurant level, to user PCs and servers. It addresses the worrying problem of detecting and intercepting malicious software that may not have a known signature and stopping it before it damages any files or computers. We have been using it for 2 years now, and so far we have had no malicious software issues, and we have been able to stop a few that have tried. Now that ransomware is a huge issue in the industry, we are happy to have this safety net.

We use many modules of Sophos Central but Intercept X is used on all endpoint machines and servers in our environment. It is our anti-malware and anti-virus agent. It also allows us to set policies for web access and application access.

Intercept-X is used across the whole organization and on-top of Sophos' excellent EndPoint protection, it primarily addresses the increased threat that ransomware is presenting to our Charity. After running a number of ransomware tests against Sophos Intercept-X, it outperforms a number of market leaders and helps me get to sleep at night knowing our AV product is protecting us.

Sophos Intercept X is our chosen endpoint security solution for all of our Windows endpoints (Windows and Windows Server) across the entire enterprise. We were already using Sophos before, and we replaced an older Sophos appliance with the cloud-based "Sophos Control" version instead, and we abandoned our on-prem Sophos web appliance.

Sophos is utilized across the whole organization. It provides the layer of protection needed for endpoints and servers against various forms of viruses and attacks that batter the technology industry. The need for protection of assets is well provided with the Sophos product and its components with little interaction or annoying notifications to users.

We use Sophos to protect all the machines in our environment. We also have the cloud set up so when our mobile users connect in the world we can make sure they get updates from the Sophos Database. We also get alerts if a system has not updated in a while which helps us find computers that are not used that often.

Sophos is used globally across the entire company. We really on Sophos to provide endpoint protection to all desktops and servers plus the entire AWS estate. This provides us with our primary AV defense from internal users and malicious internet content. This is managed by multiple teams who can interact with the cloud-based solution and closely monitor all devices for compliance.

We use Sophos Endpoint Protection on our internal equipment, as well as client computers/servers. The product enables us to manage AntiVirus, Encryption, and Next Gen AntiMalware in a single portal with a single agent. The protection we get from this combo is second to none, and that's where the real value of this product comes through - tight integration to the entire platform...

We implemented Sophos Endpoint Protection across our organization a couple of years ago and it has been the best solution we have seen to date.
We installed this across our entire company and even implemented it into a new company that was recently acquired. Security is obviously at the fore-front of all of our minds, and Sophos has given us peace of mind.

We use Sophos Endpoint Protection to provide an extra layer of security for our users. We deployed this software to our entire organization. The great thing is, I do not believe the majority of users are even aware that it exists. It runs completely silent in the background. It also makes management and monitoring very easy since all instances can be modified and changed in the cloud.

This product is being used across the whole organization. We mainly use it as an advanced anti-virus solution to protect end users from malware and viruses. It has cut our monthly infections down to almost 1 or 2 a month from being much higher before implementation

We use Sophos Endpoint Protection for threat detection and prevention. It's deployed across our endpoints and other resources to provide antimalware protection, monitor our web resources and emails in real time and to protect us against ransomware attacks. After being a victim of ransomware attack, we switched to Sophos endpoint protection and it has been able to provide complete protection against ransomware and malware attacks over the years, thus providing peace of mind for us.

Sophos is being used across our entire organization. As we have distributed locations, having Sophos cloud helps us both deploy easily but also makes day to day management and remediation simpler. We were looking for a tool that was meaningful in the sense of security but also simple to manage and having a fast learning curve. Another benefit for us is that it has been easy to add capabilities such as protection against ransomware and more.
