Overall Satisfaction with Sophos Intercept X

We use Sophos Intercept-X company-wide for our endpoint security solution and it has been doing an excellent job in thwarting off potential attacks.
  • Easy migration from Symantec to Sophos Intercept-X. A simple .msi file allowed for the automatic uninstall of Symantec.
  • Sophos Central makes it very simple to mitigate potential issues immediately. I can log in and remediate from anywhere.
  • Most vulnerabilities are blocked and removed without IT Helpdesk needing to touch a machine. The reporting capabilities after the fact are informative.
  • There are a bunch of running Sophos processes on machines with the software installed. Some take up quite a bit of memory at times.
  • Although the process to correct is easy and relatively quick, I've noticed quite a few false positives when it comes to web filtering.
  • Setting up policies is a little clunky at first.
  • Intercept-X has allowed us to improve our NIST Compliance Requirements by giving us a better view of threats and how they are cleaned up.
  • We're able to more quickly remediate vulnerabilities with Intercept-X.
Sophos Intercept-X gave us a more well-rounded solution.
We've only had to use support a few times and it's satisfactory, but could be better with response times and overall expertise with first-line support.
