Sophos SafeGuard Pros and Cons

Sophos SafeGuard Pros

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.

The most valuable feature is the synchronized security. It's a unique feature on the market at this time only offered by Sophos. As a reseller, we often win bids and get clients because of this unique trademark feature.

The features that I have found most valuable are encryption tools that encrypt the hard disk and the USB sticks.

The Intercept X feature is the most valuable feature. You can't find this feature in other firewalls because Intercept X works as if it has an interaction between the endpoint and the firewall.

Sophos SafeGuard Cons

Oche Ankeli
Head of IT at Digital Oak Ltd
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.

In the next release, I would like to see more automation with the endpoint logging, but it's a special feature that is quite complicated to explain.

Having a DLP integrated with the encryption engine would be very good.

Sophos SafeGuard is a German product. Sophos isn't really active in Europe. The Middle East, Africa, South Africa works with Sophos but their primary users aren't in Europe. They should market and push this solution to the European market.

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.

I would like to see a support-cloud, where Sophos creates a single package that contains all of its products.

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.

The cost is rather expensive. It's a pain point for many clients. They should work to see if they can reduce pricing.
