Overall Satisfaction with Sophos Intercept X

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.
  • Identifies ransomware
  • Gives in-depth analysis on current and detected threats
  • Very easy to configure on top of existing products
  • GUI not very simple
  • Information regarding threats often unclear and hard to decipher at basic level
  • False positives on occassion
  • Very good return after Charity discount
  • Uptime has been 100% (touch wood!)
  • Couldn't ask for a better AV product
Sophos offered better value for money whilst beating the above products on detection and prevention. The GUI is fantastic and easy to use and works seamlessly on top of other features like DLP, application control and web monitoring. I would recommend getting the XG firewall as well, as the suite available from Sophos is top notch!
Their blog is excellent and any issues are clearly and quickly posted on to their website. Support is available from directly within the cloud portal and response times are excellent. Can't complain at all! I often receive calls to check in (even though we are a small charity) and update us on upcoming product enhancements. Free trials available from within the cloudportal are also a godsend!

Small/Medium businesses that are email heavy can rest easy knowing they're getting great value product with extremely good protection. It catches a wide range of ransomware variants.

Large businesses with a large number of devices may struggle, as there's a lot of detail captured with individual threats and troubleshooting is often time consuming.
