Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

Their customer support is really good and so is their documentation and knowledge base site.

Technical Support:

It’s excellent, at one point our licensing lapsed and they still helped us with a complex virus outbreak.

Previous Solutions

Previously used McAfee and evaluated Kaspersky, we switched from McAfee to Sophos because of price and features.

Initial Setup

The initial setup was straightforward, server deployment was easy and policy creation and templates were easy to setup with selection items from a list.

Implementation Team

We implemented it in-house, just read the documentation and check the knowledge base, most of the issues that you’ll run into are documented.

ROI

The return on our investment was huge, mostly due to the time saved in managing thousands of physical endpoints.

Other Advice

Test your remediation policy thoroughly before instituting it house wide.
