Sophos SafeGuard Valuable Features

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 it for part of the application. With Sophos, I only need to generate the password and give that to a user to be able to allow them to log in 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. With Central Synchronisation, the Sophos Endpoint can be linked with Sophos firewall to constantly monitor the health status of computers on your network. A policy on the health status of each computer can be configured to determine actions that will be take should a computer be found infected. if the health status of the computer changes, the computer can be denied access to the internet and other segments of the network and reported to the admin and Sophos Endpoint will disinfect the system, report the health status to Sophos firewall and access to the internet and other segments of the network will be granted to the computer. all of these is done without human intervention.

A sandbox is an isolated environment used to execute suspicious files attached to emails and downloaded from websites to determine if they contain malware View full review »

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. It's a complete end-to-end solution, which is a huge advantage. It's easy to explain to customers. We don't have to go from one product to another to address the needs of our customers. Everything you need is in the solution, and the license is embedded in the firewall. View full review »

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. The features that I have found most valuable are encryption tools that encrypt the hard disk and the USB sticks. The data that is moved and the data at rest need to be encrypted. They are not using the booting encryption because it creates heavy processing on the work station, and that delays the work. Instead, they have chosen to encrypt files that are in transit, or that are in rest only. View full review »

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 that's not right, it separates it and it secures the network to defend it from this attack. This is a good feature and development that Sophos implemented around five years ago. View full review »

The management and the removable media encryption are two of the solution's most valuable features, in my opinion. They're very useful. It's quite easy to integrate Safeguard with BitLocker. View full review »
