We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The management and enrollment process is great, and with the asset management and instant action menu, we can easily maintain and support the users."
"In terms of valuable features, we liked the lock feature, the roll-out white feature, and the find feature. I think that Sophos had a GPS locator, so you could figure out where the phone was from a GPS location."
"They always add more features to this product."
"The most valuable features are visibility and remote access."
"The remote control we have helps us a lot."
"We can do auto patch updates using SOTI. SOTI has been well placed in terms of the number of endpoints it can handle."
"The most valuable features are remote control and geo-fencing."
"All features are useful. It is useful for preventing the use of unauthorized software on corporate-owned devices. It provides an option to lock the devices for unauthorized software. The devices can only be used under the supervision of the device manager."
"The installation is very straightforward."
"We would like to see graphics showing the use of each device."
"In terms of what could be improved, the initial configuration and setup of the environment could probably be made a little bit easier. There are so many pieces that go into it. Intune is absolutely insane and Sophos is better, but it still is a bit complex to get it all set up correctly."
"It could be more secure."
"There is room for improvement when it comes to the ability to customize devices and choosing what information goes onto them."
"The solution could use better reporting."
"In the next release, they should make it easier to migrate."
"Adding more features for iOS devices would be an improvement."
"The pricing policy of SOTI is not stable. You buy it today at one price, and the following year, it becomes something like 5% or 7% higher. From my point of view, SOTI is a little bit weak in terms of implementation on the new Windows 10 devices, and they have to work on this. It can't compete with Intune and other solutions when it comes to Windows implementation. It almost doesn't work with iOS. It works well with Android."
"It would be helpful if the product offered more integration and more features around the iOS and macOS platforms."
"The licensing is paid on a yearly basis."
"There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees."
"Its pricing policy is not stable. The licensing is on a one-yearly, two-yearly, or three-yearly basis. There is no monthly fee."
