Overall Satisfaction with Sophos Intercept X

We are using Sophos Intercept X across the whole organization, from POS devices at the restaurant level, to user PCs and servers. It addresses the worrying problem of detecting and intercepting malicious software that may not have a known signature and stopping it before it damages any files or computers. We have been using it for 2 years now, and so far we have had no malicious software issues, and we have been able to stop a few that have tried. Now that ransomware is a huge issue in the industry, we are happy to have this safety net.
  • It can detect malicious software even if it does not have a known signature in the endpoint database. This is a big strength.
  • It works while being imperceptible by users. Another big strength.
  • It used to be a separate add on to the endpoint, but they have already addressed this, and t is included in the enterprise-level endpoint.
  • It will do its job without alerting you, so you may think it is not working. It makes you a little anxious.
  • It costs almost the same as the last endpoint solution we had while providing more features.
  • We have better peace of mind in having all our systems protected from one of the biggest threats.
It provides more features for the same price. These added features differentiate Sophos from the rest of the pack, making it a better solution. Also, the ability to integrate with your Sophos firewall if you have one adds another level of integration and protection. This integration also provides centralized management for both the endpoint and the firewall.
  1. We had an issue in the beginning with installing the software in our POS devices, and the support service was fast to respond and help us figure out the correct way of doing the deployment.
  2. They have also helped us when the time came to renew, but the new licenses had not arrived, so that we would remain protected in the time being.
  3. One time we patched the firmware and it had a bug, and the support team came out with a new patch the next day that fixed everything.
So far, we have been very pleased.

Yes

Did Sophos Intercept X live up to sales and marketing promises?

Did implementation of Sophos Intercept X go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Sophos Intercept X again?

Yes

I believe it is the best-integrated solution for ransomware protection for the price point. This makes it suitable for small, medium, or large businesses. The endpoint bundle, including the intercept x, has a very competitive price, and may be cheaper than solutions that offer less. Security is a very important aspect of running a business today, and having something you can count on brings peace of mind.
