Overall Satisfaction with Sophos Endpoint Protection

It's being used across the whole organization.
  • Centralized management of endpoint security
  • Easy to understand dashboards
  • Protection against ransomware
  • Nice graphical analysis for malware behavior and the vectors involved in the attack
  • SAML login support for cloud console
  • Manual malware cleanups can be frustrating
  • Feature to enable reinstall from the portal if need be.
  • Protection against ransomware
  • Efficient malware remediation
Besides legacy malware protection, Sophos is doing a good job in protecting against ransomware, thanks to their Intercept X and its behavioral analytics that would stop ransomware that was never seen in wild.
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.
