What is most valuable?

I use all the features. they're all excellent. One of the aspects of the solution that I like the most is the fact that I can control my peripherals without having to use… more»

How has it helped my organization?

In terms of security, we were a bit lacking before we introduced Sophos. I was using another Endpoint solution before. While we were using that, I realized that I was… more»

What needs improvement?

If you're talking about technical support, their endpoint support needs improvement. Their UTM is doing well, however. If it's possible, they should make all the features… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

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.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We previously used Kaspersky Advanced. We switched because we discovered that there were a lot of features that we didn't have on Kaspersky that were available on Sophos… more»

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model. I would recommend the solution. New users should ensure that they get every module that they need. I had a friend whose server was… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not evaluate other options before switching from Kaspersky to Sophos.

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?

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, it is working for the booting process and you can encrypt files on the mobile and use its agent also… 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 compliance from the government. There is not enough marketing for this solution. If they give it some… more»

What other advice do I have?

The more customers that use this solution the better it will be in terms of developing or improving the technical issues. It will be an opportunity to have issues resolved as it will give it some importance. They are progressing and doing some amazing things because Sophos Central is now managing the encryption but not all features. I would recommend this solution. I would rate this solution an… more»

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 solution offers very good performance. The user interface is simple, It makes it very easy to use.

What needs improvement?

We've only really been dealing with this solution for six months, so I haven't had time to note anything that is lacking in the solution. The cost is rather expensive. It's a pain point for many clients. They should work to see if they can… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The cost is not cheap. It's a rather expensive solution.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I didn't previously use a different solution.

What other advice do I have?

We're a reseller. We handle the on-premises deployment models. I'd recommend the solution. I'd rate it eight out of ten.
