The forensics within the solution are quite good. The ransomware mitigation is also impressive.The most valuable features are the range and restriction.After that, the client switched to Sophos to get the protection they lacked. It either works or it doesn’t and Sophos works.All of the features are very important for anyone who is supporting a large number of computers.It is a practically maintenance free intelligent system that independently protects environments from malicious attacks.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.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.We most value the price and interface quality with Sophos Intercept X.

Cons
FortiClient is not communicating with the new version of the firewall.The pricing of the solution should be less expensive.Technical support is awful. Their online response time is not prompt. They should not respond after four or five days. Their support guys are not competent enough. Small issues are taking time.The memory check needs to be improved, giving better visibility into the run-time memory.The pricing could use improvement.The price could also use improvement.I would like to see an improvement in the web filter, because I think it can be more user-friendly.Initially, the support was very poor. It is getting better, but they should continue to improve this.

To be a perfect product, the price would have to be a bit better.They might want to offer an MSP model for licensing, to offer the solution as a software as a service.The price of this solution can be improved.The product defends very well on its own but could possibly use enhancement in giving users more controls.The initial setup was not very user-friendly.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.Sophos needs to create a YouTube channel with educational material for technicians or engineers.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.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The price is okay and competitive.Fortinet requires you to buy a lot of product in order for you to have proper protection.An annual license costs about 1.5 to 3,000 US dollars. There are no additional costs.Anyone can download this product for free, but you have to have a FortiGate gateway that you are connecting to.Licensing was free up to ten users and after that, it was pretty reasonable.

The price is pretty good.We renew the license for one year at $10,000.

Overview

Securing your endpoints against sophisticated threats on a myriad of devices can be very challenging:

  • Managing separate endpoint features is complex and time-consuming.
  • Disparate security products don't share intelligence, resulting in slow threat response.
  • Lack of InfoSec expertise to effectively administer endpoint security can let threats slip through your defenses.

Sophos Intercept X stops the widest range of attacks with a unique combination of deep learning malware detection, exploit prevention, anti-ransomware, and more.
