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

Pros
The solution has done a fabulous job of protecting us from threats.Policy deployment is easy and quick to do.The user experience and the quality of the features are good.The monitoring features are easy to use.The user interface is simple, It makes it very easy to use.The features that I have found most valuable are encryption tools that encrypt the hard disk and the USB sticks.The most valuable features of the solution are the fact that they are able to encrypt the hard disk and to encrypt USB sticks.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.

Cons
Technical support could be a bit better.Having a DLP integrated with the encryption engine would be very good.The tutorials need to be simplified. The existing ones need to be easier to follow and we could use some tutorials for basic setups. They should aim to be more like Cisco, which offers very good tutorials and materials.I would like to see a support-cloud, where Sophos creates a single package that contains all of its products.The cost is rather expensive. It's a pain point for many clients. They should work to see if they can reduce pricing.The security does not have 100% authentication.The solution is not using other features like booting encryption, because it causes very heavy processing of the workstation. If they could find some way to handle the encryption and decryption to be lighter on the workstation it would be better.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.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Licensing for this solution is on a yearly basis.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.The licensing costs depend on the series. For example, XG 85 can be around $200. If you go to ACC or to a four or five-year enterprise solution, you will find these devices can cost $10,000. It depends on the series.
