Overall Satisfaction with Sophos Phish Threat

We use Sophos Phish Threat to test all our users in the organization. We are able to customize phishing tests for the department or user in what they will see most often. This helps better prepare our users for possible phishing emails they could get to their work email or even their personal email.
  • Updated phishing scams and training
  • Ease of use interface
  • Reports on Passing and failing.
  • I wish I could mark manually that someone passed the training that way if a big group gets caught we can sit down and use our training class for the users.
  • Our employees have become more aware of different phishing tactics used since we have started using Sophos Phish Threat
  • We have had an increase in reporting of possible phishing emails since we started using Sophos Phish Threat
  • We have also been able to block certain IP addresses from sending us emails since all they do is send phishing emails to us
We selected Sophos as it integrates with our antivirus solution and we only have one dashboard for both. It just made sense to bundle the sophos phish threat with intercept X and antivirus solutions we have in place, and all of it is on a cloud based interface for easily managing and running reports from anywhere.
It is great for our corporate environment so we can target departments or specific users for certain phishing scam testing. I like the reporting function to see who is avoiding taking the training as well as being able to tell who has a high number of failures in the company. I do not think that there is a reason you should not be phishing your employees.

Evaluating Sophos Phish Threat and Competitors

  • Price
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
  • Product Reputation
  • Vendor Reputation
  • Existing Relationship with the Vendor
  • Positive Sales Experience with the Vendor
We were reevaluating our endpoint protection and were looking at Sophos. We were able to get a bundle of Sophos Endpoint Protection, Intercept X, and phish Threat for less than the renewal cost of our current endpoint protection that did not offer any additional features we were looking for and it is all on one interface.
I would say that the Demo that was provided by Sophos on their products was very in depth and allowed us to make the right decision on purchasing their products.

Had a Problem with some users not being able to see the training. These users were blocked from viewing streaming sites so we can keep bandwidth down. I submitted a ticket and the same day I got a call to troubleshoot the issue. They were able to walk me through where to find the site that was being tagged for blocking and re-tag it as a training page to allow through firewall.

Using Sophos Phish Threat

It is easy to use and setup. You can schedule the Phish email test to be
sent out in the future or right away. You can also send to all users in
your list as well as stagger so all users do not get the email at the
same time and tell each other there is a test going on.

  • Reporting
  • Setting up tests
  • Sign up users for mandatory training
  • If you have firewall and blocked streaming sites you may have problems with training videos it does take some digging to allow right keywords through firewall
