Sophos EPP Suite Valuable Features

MM
Network Administrator at Transgulf Readymix

The main reason why we choose the Sophos EPP Suite is because of its capabilities to stop infections from spreading around the internal network once the problems have infiltrated it. For example, one computer gets infected. When that computer attempts to communicate with another computer — one client to another client — Sophos checks the behavior of the computer. It looks at what it is trying to communicate and what resources the computer is using. If it does something that is suspicious, like move an application that may be a virus, Sophos will stop the activity and disconnect the computer from the rest of the network immediately. It does this automatically without an administrator having to do or even be aware of anything. This is the main thing we like about the Sophos product. It is constantly monitoring all points and has the capability to detect and act on intrusions without other intervention.

The solution's most valuable aspect, for us, is the DLP portion of the product. 

It's just a good endpoint solution. I can't say that it's better or worse than any other product, however, it has a pretty good feature set. There are good rules, etc.

That application, so far, is actually able to tell us if there are any issues with the machine and what they are.

Some of the most valuable things are very simple. I like the ease of deployment. Intercept X has very good ransomware detection and rollback capabilities.

For the Endpoint Protection, there are a few different features that are great. The Sophos Interface has got a very good feature for the de-planning that protects the rear de-modeller. The firewall can be completely in there with the Sophos Endpoint agents that are being installed in clients in real-time. The Endpoint Protection also has new features with the EDI Engine. The Endpoint Detection and response won't quit, which is something that the clients appreciate.

In terms of the Firewall, the EAP assist, the simple interface and the reporting features are quite good for clients. It's very easy to understand and to navigate the Dashboard.

Synchronized security is a great feature. Basically, my firewall knows exactly what is happening in my endpoint. It takes my production level one step higher. The 100% application visibility means that questions are asked: What are the types of application in my endpoint which are attending to that cloud server? Is it for any command and control server or a genuine site? That type of thing. That flows onto the quality control in XG Firewall which checks whether there is any malicious activity present in the system so I can control access of that system.

With Sophos, the scanning of viruses and scanning of the disk is done silently in the background.

The most valuable feature is data loss prevention.

The rollback feature that SentinelOne has would be a great addition to Sophos.

The most valuable feature is the ability to centrally manage the total security environment, including the firewall.

This solution integrates well with the other Sophos components. Together, they provide synchronized security.

It is doing its job. We use it for standard antivirus purposes and for making sure that people aren't downloading infected attachments. 

Because we use the cloud version, it is easy to maintain. We don't have to do anything to really maintain it. It gets updated automatically.

The feature I find most valuable is that this solution is pretty simple compared to Fortinet, which we used before we upgraded. It's really simple to use.

Intercept X is the most valuable feature in the solution. It's more or less pretty standard. The endpoint feature allows you to basically see what is happening, and stop a wide range of threats. It's been the most unique identifier for Sophos.
