What is most valuable?

How has it helped my organization?

It provides email alerts to the End User Computing team when endpoints have been compromised, and enables network remediation for unknown endpoints.

What needs improvement?

I'd like to see them include direct integration with Active Directory.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used it for five years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

No issues encountered.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues encountered.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues encountered.

How are 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.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

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

How was the 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.

What about the 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.

What was our ROI?

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

What other advice do I have?

Test your remediation policy thoroughly before instituting it house wide.
