We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The feature I find most valuable, is the reality graphical user interface."
"This solution requires less management and is very easy to use."
"We are using almost all of the features and we find it quite good overall."
"It can be deployed in autonomous mode, and then it automatically blocks malware threats."
"The product is very easy to use. Customers really appreciate that."
"The most valuable feature is the monitored support behind it."
"The feature that I have found most valuable is that the configuration and the usage of the product are not so complicated. For people responsible for using this infrastructure for the first line of workstation monitoring, it's quite easy to use."
"The dashboard is beautiful, overall easy of use, and the UBA and NBA features are valued."
"So easy to deploy and use that you really don't even need their technical support."
"If you want something simple to work with, Sophos makes it very simple for you to use."
"Intercept X is the most valuable feature in the solution. It's more or less pretty standard. The endpoint feature allows you to basically see what is happening, and stop a wide range of threats. It's been the most unique identifier for Sophos."
"The protection that this solution offers us is strong."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to centrally manage the total security environment, including the firewall."
"With Sophos, the scanning of viruses and scanning of the disk is done silently in the background."
"In terms of the Firewall, the EAP assist, the simple interface and the reporting features are quite good for clients. It's very easy to understand and to navigate the Dashboard."
"Sophos EPP Suite has the capability to stop infections from spreading around the internal network even after the problems have infiltrated it."
"I think the technical support could be better."
"A support center in Asia is needed."
"I would like to see support for mobile protection and some additional reports included."
"Could have better integration with other security applications."
"The solution just needs to keep maturing and they need to keep up with the threat landscape to ensure they're protecting clients well as time passes."
"Most of their times are in Greenwich Mean Time. I would like to see more local time zones."
"In terms of what could be improved, I would say the usability of this product for new threats. Meaning, not everything which is new is properly seen by the product and not all the required actions are taken."
"Compliance reports need to improve."
"Configuring notifications is lagging a bit behind the curve as the product should be able to direct exactly where any notification type is sent."
"If you are not an IT expert, the solution is difficult to use."
"Deployment and central management need to be improved."
"In the next release, I would like to see the phishing attached included in the firewall."
"I would like to have more logging features to help more deeply analyze traffic."
"The solution is not easy to use in comparison to other endpoint security solutions."
"The support could be improved. The response times are slow."
"Sophos does not currently inform users of potential compatability issues with Windows updates."
"It gives you a high level of protection at a very good price."
"Everything is included in this one solution and the pricing is pretty competitive."
"Our billing is on a quarterly basis, but they have monthly or annual billing availability."
"The price should not be less than $100 which is quite reasonable for this solution because you are getting multiple components."
"Its licensing is on a monthly basis."
"Pricing wise, Cynet seems to be very competitive. The cost is probably lower than that offered by many of its competitors for all the functions and features it offers."
"Willing to discount when you are switching from another product. Upgrading services will end up costing more, as expected."
"The pricing for this solution is ok."
"It may be possible to negotiate licensing cost based on volume."
"We purchased a three-year license, which gave us a large discount."
"Pricing could always be lower. It costs around $120 per seat per year."
"Sophos is cheaper than some competing products."
