Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

"The most valuable feature is that everything is done on the server.""This solution can be centrally managed.""The initial setup is easy.""The usability is the most valuable feature."

More ESET Endpoint Encryption Pros »

"The intrusion detection system.""The most valuable feature is the synchronized security. It's a unique feature on the market at this time only offered by Sophos. As a reseller, we often win bids and get clients because of this unique trademark feature.""With Sophos, I only need to generate the password and give that to a user to be able to allow them to login to the admin page of the Endpoint and do whatever they need to do. The user cannot go ahead and uninstall it. It's kept us much more secure because of this. Should any event happen on a particular system, I'm given the username and the system IP address. I get notifications and can deal with issues right away.""I like its ease of use the most. The management console is really nice. I like having one pane of glass that does everything. It does the Sophos anti-virus and encryption. Everything that you need is in one place. It is easy to use, and it is also pretty fast. It provides some pretty good details, and it lets you know who has access to a file. You can also add additional people to the encrypted documents, which is pretty good. Its stability and performance are also very good.""The malware protection and the scanning features are most valuable in this solution.""It's the best solution on the market.""The features that I have found most valuable are encryption tools that encrypt the hard disk and the USB sticks.""It's a straightforward solution."

More Sophos SafeGuard Pros »

"I would like to see better compatibility with mobile devices.""The solution should have better synchronization with active directory users and passwords for use in the encryption.""Sometimes the server console is very slow, so the performance could be improved.""Integration with central management needs improvement."

More ESET Endpoint Encryption Cons »

"In the next release, I would like to see more automation with the endpoint logging, but it's a special feature that is quite complicated to explain.""It would be ideal if the solution had different features within one agent.""If it's possible, they should make all the features available because it's got a lot of features on offer, but you have to buy the license in order to add those features to the normal Endpoint. If they could make all those features available and/or offer a bundling option it would be better.""The security does not have 100% authentication.""The Office 360 integration could be improved.""It just needs a little bit more on the reporting side. Its reporting can be improved a little bit in terms of being able to know that things are in the right status. I should be able to pull a report to make sure that everything is all right. It could also have cloud integration. At the time I was using it, it wasn't a cloud product.""There are times that this solution takes up too much memory that needs to be resolved. If it is not fixed it will definitely create issues in the future.""The integration could be a little better."

More ESET Endpoint Encryption Pricing and Cost Advice »

"It would be great if the price of the solution was lower than the current price. If we are to sell this particular solution to smaller businesses and not just enterprise businesses it needs to be lower.""The licenses are dependant on the number of users and computers you have to protect.""Licensing is on a yearly basis and the pricing could be better.""We have a yearly license with Sophos which is around $1000-$1200 or so per annum. There are no additional costs beyond the standard licensing fee."

Top Answer: It's a straightforward solution.
Top Answer: We need to pay for this solution currently, however, if we switch to Bitlocker, it would be free as it's a part of Microsoft's OS.
Top Answer: BitLocker comes from the OS license with Windows. It's a free solution. However, Sophos is a product we need to pay for. Therefore, using it is more expensive for our organization. It's also, in… more »
