What is our primary use case?

Sophos handles the security through AI-Synchronized Security AI Deep Learning/Security Heart Beat, DLP, Easy Enrollment (DEP, KME, Google Zero Touch), App management, VPN per App, iOS, Android, Windows 10 clients, and Mac. It is easy to set up, enroll users, and manage. The Secure Workspace (GDPR Compliance / separation of corporate data from personal data) / (container with corporate apps like secure e-mail, calendar, contact persons, and corporate browser etc.) is easy to manage. It takes only a few minutes to get started. With the "instant action" and support for TeamViewer, mobile support… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "The management and enrollment process is great, and with the asset management and instant action menu, we can easily maintain and support the users."
  • "We would like to see graphics showing the use of each device."

What other advice do I have?

The Synchronized Security / Sophos Central provides ONE platform for management of Firewall, Wifi, Servers, Endpoints, Unified Mobile Devices (some using ONE App only and some are enrolled in Apple DEP / ABM with company specific policies (blueprints). Some have been enrolled in Samsung KNOX and we are working on the Google Zero-Touch Enrollment program+ Windows-10 / Office 365), Cloud (Azure) and AWS, Encryption and have the best anti-ransomware engine on the market (Intercept-X).

Complicated setup, poor tech support but some solid features

What is our primary use case?

We were attempting to safeguard corporate data as it leaves our walls. We already have encrypted laptop hard drives, so we were trying to extend that to cell phones for One Drive, Outlook, and One Note. All that is corporate data. And if you lose your cell phone or somebody steals it or you dump it in the toilet or any number of things that could happen to your cell phone, we want to be able to block access, delete the corporate data, do all those things that good security people are supposed to do.

Pros and Cons

  • "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."
  • "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."

What other advice do I have?

On a scale of one to ten, I would rate Sophos Mobile a four. They need to make it easier. I've been in this industry for 30 years, so I'm not stupid by any manner of means. But like most IT personnel, I've got more on my plate than I can shake a stick at. I don't have time to spend the three or four days to read volumes of support articles and figure out configurations and then mess with the GUI and screw it up and have to figure out how to fix it and how to push out rules that I really need. I don't have time to do all that. So the easier they can make an out of the box solution, the better…
