Pros: We have been using Sophos Endpoint Protection for about 2 years now and we love it. The best part is the ability to control our Virus protection settings from a central webpage. We use it for more than virus protection we also use it to limit our corporate users internet access. The feature we love it the ability to select categories (Violence, Drinking, Entertainment) This added an additional layer of security.

The dashboard is great it gives us a quick look at the status of our devices. We know that all of our end users and servers are protected. We have enabled email noticications so we will get an alert that there is an Issue that IT needs to look into .

Tha best part is the license is per user not machine. So some of our IT guys have 2-3 computers that all are protected with out the cost of additinoal licenses.

Cons: Very few Cons sometimes you have to dig a little to get to a setting in the cloud console. Also, the support is generally a long wait and the first tier isn't very knowledgeable. Luckily we don't call
support a lot.

I really wish i could buy the product direct and not have to go through a third-party reseller.

Overall: Saved money and improved our system security.

Comments: I have been a Sophos customer since 1997, but I check and compare them every couple of years. The price for what you get is great and the features you get are first class and award winning. InterceptX is probably the best endpoint security tool I have!

Pros: Conistantly comes top in all anti-virus tests - detects more than competitor products Sophos Intercept X anti-ransomware is a God-send and will role back any zero-day encryption attacks Sophos Sandstorm allows checking of attachments in a cloud-based virtual environment in Sophos labs to test each unseen attachment. Sophos Central makes admin so much easier Being able to block non-encrypted USB sticks and other peripherals is a nice feature.

Cons: Sophos Enterprise admin is a little dated. Sophos Central admin is much easier and nicer Sophos Central doesn't tie up with Sophos SG Next Gen Firewall, but it does play nicely with the newer Sophos XG.

Pros: Sophos allows us to protect all the devices on our domain and keep them free from virus'. Sophos comes with a simple installer that can be used on either Windows or Mac OSX, this allows for quick, easy installations so we can quickly configure our devices to ensure less downtime. Sophos allows us to create multiple different profiles depending on the user or department. Once the profiles are configured, the permissions will be applied against the device instantly. We can also approve individual websites or applications, this allows us to keep a close eye on devices across the group whilst ensuring security is tight.

Cons: We have noticed with some hardware, although the are the same model, Sophos seems to block one but not the other. Obviously the hardware differs slightly but Sophos should recognise the model. Due to the number of users we have, this is a constant maintenance task.

Overall: Sophos supplies top security with maximum functionality

Pros: Network security is very important to my company, and one of the widely used and recommended antivirus programs that users need to have installed in order to remote VPN is Sophos, so that says a lot to me about the reliability of the software. So far I have had no issues and have not been infected by any viruses since using the tool. It seems to be a very robust tool and works to protect my files, downloads, browsers, and network activity. The settings are also easy to change.

Cons: The cloud based configuration is interesting.. Maybe I'm just not used to it, but if one where to have no internet connection then you can't modify settings. But then at the same time, the cloud based settings allow one to globally modify all the clients that are on the account, so I could see that being a powerful feature.

We haven't had any trouble, I guess Sophos is working? :-)

Pros: The great thing is our users don't get interfered by working while being fully protected. I think it's nice that we can enable device control. There are a lot of external people coming in and without some overview of what they connect to our devices we would've probably gotten in trouble a lot if it wasn't for Sophos

Cons: We've contacted the customer support a few times and I feel this isn't on par with the security the software gives. We get an exhausting list of things to try to fix the problem but when it doesn't there isn't a real followup.. We end up testing ourselves or finding the fix online.

Comments: Sophos is a giant in the market of enterprise antivirus. Recent years, Microsoft Windows offers free antivirus software with great enterprise management tool. Personally I prefer Microsoft.

Pros: It provides powerful management console for enterprise administrators to deploy agent to workstations, and monitor client status. With simple and clear interface for end user.

Cons: The client agent requires large memory usage, usually at least 1GB. As it has cloud-enabled analysis for unknown websites, client agents will send these website addresses to Sophos server, hence losts of bandwidth is consumed.

Pros: Sophos Central's cloud management makes for a much better experience than hosting our own management server internally. Our users get their definition updates from anywhere as long as they have Internet, and the endpoints report back in if they run into any trouble or malware. We know if someone picks up a virus or if their computer stops getting updates or if they call out of configuration compliance through automatic emails from the system, so are able to take corrective action right away.

Cons: Since the management server is in the cloud, it cannot do automatic deployments of the software to our endpoints. You either have to install it manually or have software deployment solution from another source. That being said, its command-line installation options are super easy.

Overall: Catches more malware and PUPs than our previous antivirus product by far!

Overall the Sophos Endpoint Protection has been very good.

Pros: I like the cloud-centric management portal of the product. I, as the administrator, can keep an eye on the entire company. The portal (as well as the endpoint products) are all globally acccessible, too.

Cons: I would like a little more control of the endpoints monitored; sometimes I need a "reach out and touch you" facility. PUA's keep coming up and I'm never sure if I've removed them or not. That goes for several warnings. Some of them are only temporary (missed 2 updates, for example), but they still show up as alerts, even though they have gotten the last 10 updates. And finally, the website restrictions are pretty ridiculously restrictive.

Overall: Fully, cloud-based administration of endpoint protection software.

Comments: All in all very happy and I highly recommend Sophos.

Pros: I have been using Sophos for more than 7 years now and have it installed on all my Macs. Easy to use, easy to install, great protection.

Cons: Since last year I have started experiencing trouble when backing up my Macs. Somehow there seems to be an cpompatility problem between Sophos and Timemachine and when backing up, I need to turn off scanning and live protection to make sure it goes quick. If it's not turned off, Time Machine announces a backup time of sometimes 120 hours.

Pros: This product does an overall okay job, easy to deploy with on prem well the cloud solutions. I have them both, what I like about the on prem is the white and black list capabilities the cloud solution lacks.

Cons: - whenever I use this endpoint I have to accompany it with something else due to the lack of it catching malware and spyware, I have had trojan not get picked up from this product but have had other malware products detect and remove them.

Feel safe with Sophos. Great value for the price.

Pros: It just works. There are not too many things I can say that about. Sophos is by far the best Anti-Virus software I have used and I have tried them all. Having it deployed in a corporate environment the past 7 years I can tell you it does work fantastic.

Cons: The Enterprise Console can be a bit laggy and clunky at times and give false information about which machines are updated. But the software works very well overall.

Pros: Endpoint makes setup easy for a large user. Great management console allows you to apply settings to all users quickly. It detects threats quickly and reduces stress level for our IT department

Cons: Some features require and additional license, ie zero day protection. To most this is a feature that should just be included even if it raises price of software. Support can take awhile to respond.

Pros: Sophos Endpoint Protection is very easy to use product with management console in the cloud. Easy to use - applying policy's to all users has never been easier. The endpoint protection is not signature based but behavior based solution. It can catch zero-day threats.

Cons: We had few machines with outdated software - with Windows XP and we cannot use the Sophos protection on those.

Pros: The console view is extremely helpful. I like the notifications and health reports of my protected machines and users.

Cons: Some of the organization is illogical. The encryption is managed separately from other policies. It also over reports problems that correct themselves in a matter of days (like when the users reboots). This tends to make me ignore some problems to see if they persist.

Overall: Centralized control of my diversely distributed user-base. I can make sure that everyone has the software installed and that it is working correctly.

Pros: Sophos Cloud based management tool makes it easily accessible. Sophos reverse-engineers a program before it runs to see if it malicious.

Cons: Customer support for the product is the worst I have ever seen. Weeks would go by between responses on tickets. I told to white-list Office EXEs to allow Hitman.Pro to not block them. Had to reformat 2 machines because the software did not install/uninstall correctly.

Overall: Full protection suite, when it works correctly, is amazing at it duties. But if it breaks, it is almost impossible to remove.

Pros: It is cloud based, so you don't need to have software installed on a server and can access from any location. It's also easy to install and supports both Mac and Windows. The dashboard gives an overview of what is going on with your machines. Most times you can clean up things right from the cloud interface, but if manual clean up is required there is generally advice on what to do through links.

Cons: Some of the features take a bit of digging, for example adding exceptions could be an easier process. Also the few interactions I've had with support have been lackluster, even to the point of not getting responses at all.

Overall: Easy to implement, easy to use after figuring out quirks. Cost effective.

Pros: The Intercept-X addon for Ransomware is a must in todays threat landscape. We've had instances where this addon stopped ransomware before it could start to encrypt files.

Cons: There is limited reporting with the cloud version. No cool graphs you can show management or anything like that. Also, email notifications of events seem to be delays often times.

Overall: Great protections from malware and more specifically Ransomware. Also nice using the hosted version so there's one less server to manage on premise.

A great "second opinion" security option.

Pros: Configuring options and scan profiles from the cloud hosted web portal is convenient and easy to keep every machine compliant. Cloud hosted means we don't have to run any infrastructure, just install it on all our endpoints.

Cons: Some complaints that it slows computers way down, opened a support ticket, they were useless, asks the same questions over and over, didn't answer back to my replies for days, convinced me not to renew our licenses.

Overall: decent scanning

Pros: Excellent protection, backup generation, and silent running all make this a satisfactory solution for small to medium size business.

Cons: I do occasionally see a spike in my processing power for reasons I cannot explain, but can link back to sophos

Pros: Sophos runs flawlessly in the background in our work environment. We utilize it company wide and it is managed by our IT team. They have Web Control over setting scan times without having to "get in the way." We run some powerful software, but have not seen Sophos create a slowdown when running yet.

Overall: Continual background protection with none of the bloat or slow down of other virus scanners/protectors.

Comments: As we have many Mac and Linux users, we tried to find the best solution for these systems and for Windows as well. Not an easy thing. Finally, despite Sophos was not our choice for Windows, we liked it so much that we decided to choose it for Mac and Linux systems. Sophos EndPoint Protection doesn't eat much resources as many other Antivirus do on those systems which was one of our priority.

Pros: Easy to use Very Low system resources consumption on OS X and most Linux systems. Easy to install and manage. Management Console has everything and looks new and very nice (2016).

Cons: No quick scans. Can not install the agent for OS X and Linux from the management console but it is possible to push it on Windows.

Recommendations to other buyers: Not sure this is the best EndPoint Protection for Windows, but this is actually the best for Mac and Linux users available on the market.

Good feature set but a little on the pricy side.

Pros: We use Sophos in our district for a number of year and the feature set and ability to micromanage deployment has been great. It has proven to be resilient to virus threats since I started managing it. Customer support has historically been very helpful. I have not tried their cloud based solution.

Cons: It's is trick to setup and difficult to migrate a new server. It also has to deploy a lot of packages on first installation which has proven to be unreliable. We switched antivirus companies due to price.

Overall: A strong antivirus with a solid reputation

Pros: Sophos is really easy to use. It is one of the leaders in the online security for SMOs. Does offer a free version for Home users as well. Low resource consumption on the system compared with other vendors

Cons: UI is very limited really and everything is pointing to their own sites. Might be initially confusing for some old school users.

Pros: Easy to deploy. Easy to maintain. Customizing user profiles is easy. Already has caught a bunch of things on our network.

Cons: Blocked some safe apps but I realize that happens with all antivirus software(at least the good ones). Sometimes it will have a hiccup and you have to reinstall the software.

Cons: It takes a very long time for my computer to be scanned but I have always attributed it to the amount of storage on my computer. I don't have many cons to report about this software:

Pros: It is very effective at finding and blocking threats. The software has a good reputation and works well. The server software had a lot of controls and gives you the ability to easily group computers and antivirus/firewall settings. I am not familiar with the could version only the self hosted version.

Cons: There are a few issues I have had with it. Deployment using their deployment server has not been reliable for us. It is also tricky to update and migrate to a new server.

Pros: This product has special anti-ransomware features. It is also fairly granular in configuration. Once the dust settled after deployment, it seems to be providing better protection that some of the competitive products offered to MSPs.

Cons: I found it requiring a lot of administrative overhead to get it intially configured and deployed. There is a lack of proper documentation in one place to get the MSP/cloud management and deployment properly configured. This product also seemed overly aggressive when still default configuration in place.

Overall: Protection from digital threats. Peace of mind.

Comments: I have 180 units of which 160 have been migrated to Sophos Cloud. Get at least 2 alerts per day about updating which supposedly can be triggered from the console but when triggered the status does not change. About 1 in 5 of the computers migrated have issues so uninstall/reinstall is required. Cannot effectively disable Tamper Protection using console which is necessary in order to uninstall. Reinstalls/installs fail for various reasons 25% of the time. Having to spend inordinate amount of time with this. NOT A VALID SOLUTION IN MY CASE!

Cons: Console not helpful Lists computers migrated but offers little to help fix issues Alerts are false positive at least half the time.

Pros: It works well when is is up and running but we have had difficulty determining if it's on all the computers without actually looking at each PC. One company I work with requires it's use on computers connected to it's network.

Pros: Though I was not involved in software deployment or management, Sophos seems to run very lightly on my system and helps keep my computer safe, without much maintenance from my part.

Cons: Sophos Endpoint Protection is great for checking malware in real time, but the product doesn't allow you to check if you've already accidentally stumbled upon malware (which I guess is why they have other products for this issue).

Pros: Centralized management allows you to see all policy violations / threats in a single place. The actual client tool seems not to take up too much resource.

Cons: The client installer has to be run every time a new machine is added to the domain. The installer also gets out of date and has to be re-downloaded, which is irritating. The dashboard has far too many menus and is difficult to navigate.

Overall: Good endpoint protection tool (we've had no issues) with some minor irritations around setup and management.
