Overall Satisfaction with Sophos Endpoint Protection

Sophos is a leader in the endpoint protection market. Manageability, system behavior, signature base are all top notch and can compete against any end-point protection software on the market. Sophos was a replacement for Kaspersky for enterprise-wide endpoint protection on workstations and servers. It is easy to deploy and is a reliable signature-based endpoint protection suite.

Pros

  • Malicious file identification
  • Signature-based detection
  • Web-based protection

Cons

  • Signature visibility
  • Direct endpoint management - it seems this feature has gone away in recent versions
  • Great endpoint protection, reduction of malicious files on workstations and servers
  • Central management is straight forward which reduces management times
Sophos is a leader in endpoint protection, the product does what is intended well with strong support from their threat team working to create new signatures. Sophos also is less resource intensive than many endpoint protection suites. No current signature-based endpoint protection suite comes to mind that is better than Sophos.
I cant think of any endpoint protection scenarios where Sophos Endpoint Protection is not appropriate for deployment, perhaps restricted deployments that only allow one-way traffic (data diodes). Sophos is great for Mac, Windows, Linux, and server environments. It is easy to deploy and manage through its admin utility. Some direct endpoint management functionality has disappeared in recent versions.
