Overall Satisfaction with Sophos Endpoint Protection

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
  • Cloud based management is much easier than its on-prem solution
  • Easy to install and easy to get updates
  • Easy on the CPU but still very powerful
  • The migration from on-prem sophos to cloud sophos, could have been a little more seamless
  • Would love to get more insight on what was blocked or flagged and what it was trying to do
  • Better and more granular feature management from group policies
  • Less time spent fixing malware related issues
  • Able to meet requirements from NIST standards regarding use of anti-virus
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
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
