Number One and Smartest Solution

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: Best solution that you can even sell over other AVs as an add on even if they are on a current contract.

Pros:

It is the best software I have found for COMPLETE ransomware protection.

Cons:

Price for Endpoint, Intercept X and EDR all adds up fast and can scare clients.

Alternatives Considered:

Great product within a top tier suite of hardware and software

4.0 last year

Comments: Considering that this is one piece to an overall package, we have been very happy and the end to end visibility is unmatched when researching threats in our environment. What few downsides are present are miniscule when packaged together with the rest of the offerings.

Pros:

The deployment capabilities and consistency in using MDM deployment has been very important to minimize the opportunity for devices to be put into production without properly being secured. not all MSI packages are deployed the same and we have had products in the past that have installed well on some machines and not on others so consistency is key for the deployment.

Cons:

The agent has not yet had all services re-branded after the Hitman acquisition which led us down an unnecessary rabbit hole. My only other complaint would be that the agent runs heavy on workstations and in many cases, has pushed us to upgrade to m.2 drives for machines that otherwise didnt need them.

Intercept X will secure your endpoints!

5.0 2 months ago New

Comments: Intercept X is great, it saved our bacon when we were hit with the kaseya ransomware even though it is on the more expensive side of things

Pros:

Easy set up and deployment with an RMM Threat response shows the attack vectors stops ransomware in its tracks

Cons:

Price was much higher than others that provide most of the same features

Great protection, however...

3.0 5 years ago

Comments: Overall it is a great protection option if you are looking for a big company, depending on your work, purpose of it and if you don't mind having to constantly request access to blocked applications... other than that, good product.

Pros:

Sophos offers great overall protection, specially for big companies and networks. It is worth the money and value.

Cons:

Only con I found with this product, which is to me a big pet peeve, is the need to contact our IT department because Sophos tends to block several applications and software used on my work space. Only way to get authorized to continue with my work is by contacting IT (product administration) so I can get allowance to continue through these checkpoints.

Sophos Intercept X just works

5.0 2 months ago

Comments: So far we have been very pleased with the Intercept X endpoint protection product and intend to keep using it as it is easy to deploy and manage using the online portal.

Pros:

One of the things I like most about the Sophos product is that it is easy to deploy and easy to use. I also like that the endpoint agent doesn't use a ton of computer resources like some of the competitors products that I have used in the past. I also enjoy the comfort in knowing that they continually are monitoring for the latest threats and release those updates into their product streams in a timely fashion, I also think that the way the product works in response to threats is superior to other products and have not experienced any catastrophic issues since we have been using their product.

Cons:

So far the only issues I have experienced is when installing software sometimes you will need to get the tamper protection code from the console in order to disable the desktop agent while you install software which is an extra step but also one that protects from users being able to disable it.
