Pros
The most important feature we've found is the Enscripts. That is one powerful feature that I, personally, love to use.It indexes much faster, and is more reflexive because of the Enscripts.Data Recovery: Its ability to repair damaged partitions and uncover hidden partitions from within the tool, and allow further analysis.The technical support is excellent.I like the processing feature on the product because it does everything at once, i.e, indexing, recovery, keyword searches, etc.It speeds up the process, so I can meet my deadlines.

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
We have come across problems with the end-case. We could not find an email discovery type of module and there was not flexibility with the email.In the past, incident response time for tech support was slow.There were minor UI bugs.I would like to see a capability to ingest and absorb more data. That would be really good. It currently is lacking this function.Ease of use and learning curve need improvement.​Sometimes the application can take more time to complete the image processing or fail at the end of the process.​

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.
