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."
"We use Sophos Intercept X for Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) and Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) in our organization."
"It is easy to change the size of its capabilities, i.e. to expand processes or scale the size of users."
"We most value the price and interface quality with Sophos Intercept X. We focus on solution quality."
"The most valuable feature is the supervisory side of it where we can watch the throughputs, and even the loading of the device, to see how much traffic is happening."
"A valuable feature offered by Sophos is called Naked Security, and it entails the control managed by the firewall on the site regarding the desktop client interfacing with our cloud client."
"It is a practically maintenance free intelligent system that independently protects environments from malicious attacks."
"All of the features are very important for anyone who is supporting a large number of computers."
"After that, the client switched to Sophos to get the protection they lacked. It either works or it doesn’t and Sophos works."
"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."
"They should work on the logs and events. Sophos Intercept X needs to increase the interface test so that it can export to a live event."
"Technical support can be improved. There could be shared support, i.e. where someone in Egypt can respond."
"Sophos needs to create a YouTube channel with educational material for technicians or engineers."
"In terms of the site-to-site VPN elements, they tend to concentrate. It's quite simple when there are Meraki devices at both ends of the VPN but if there is another user at one end, on another device, it can be a bit tricky. So they could really simplify that process a bit."
"The initial setup was not very user-friendly."
"The product defends very well on its own but could possibly use enhancement in giving users more controls."
"The price of this solution can be improved."
"They might want to offer an MSP model for licensing, to offer the solution as a software as a service."
"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."
"We renew the license for one year at $10,000."
"The price is pretty good."
"When you start going to the EDR technologies and the MTR, it is a little bit expensive. It's a very good technology, and obviously, you're going to pay for it, but the pricing could do a little bit of work."
"We were able to eliminate the ransomware using the one-month, full-featured trial license."
"Licensing is based on the number of users. They give a discount for editors who are considered as important members. From what I know, Sophos products are not expensive. If you have a license extension, you just need to contact the editor or partner to change the mode of licensing or extend the license to cover more people."
"Intercept X for endpoints is around $35 per user per year. The server version is $95 per server per year."
"I find the pricing to be a little bit expensive, although it is acceptable, for now."
"The price of this product should be reduced because it is a little high."
