What is most valuable?Sophos SafeGuard has one of the most perfect advantages, which is the data keys for encryption. This solution uses an agent, and the agent is talking with many operating systems. It encrypts on the cloud and on the hard disk. Even if you want to create it with login access before the Windows boot… more»
How has it helped my organization?It is giving our customers the capability to encrypting their sensitive data from being breaches by attackers as even if dropped for any reason in them hands it will be encrypted and not useful. It is working for too many kinds of data, data in rest, data in use and data in motion. By full disk… more»
What needs improvement?The encryption could be improved. If they could find a way to make the encryption and decryption to be the same on the work-stations, it would be better. Some of the encryption settings have a complex configuration. Here in Egypt, they don't prioritize the selling of this solution and there is no… more»

What is most valuable?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. It makes a connection between the endpoint protection and the firewall. If Intercept X finds some behavior… more»
What needs improvement?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.
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?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.
What other advice do I have?Working with this solution will depend on your budget. If you purchase Sophos your data and your network will be secured. It's not more expensive than similar products. I recommend going with Sophos. I would rate Sophos a 7.5 out of ten because there are better firewalls out there.

What is most valuable?The most valuable features of the solution are the fact that they are able to encrypt the hard disk and to encrypt USB sticks.
What needs improvement?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. It would be ideal if the solution could make the processing possible on an appliance, instead of having to install it on a machine. Also, it should be in… more»
What other advice do I have?I would recommend the solution. I would rate the solution eight out of ten. There's not a good market for this type of solution here in Egypt. It might be because here in Egypt there isn't a great need for this kind of solution yet. There are no compliance regulations from the government. However, the solution offers good features and I believe would be good for customers. There are so many areas… more»

What is most valuable?The reporting and file encryption are the solution's most valuable features. The user experience and the quality of the features are good.
What needs improvement?The tutorials need to be simplified. The existing ones need to be easier to follow and we could use some tutorials for basic setups.
