What is most valuable?

The most valuable part of the solution in our use case is client isolation. It is a good feature.

What needs improvement?

What I think Sophos can improve is with the data-loss feature, especially when it comes to using USB sticks and USB hard disks. The feature blocks access to these USB sticks and disks and there seems to be no immediate workaround for that. Our customer was not satisfied with the feature. We actually… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did use other solutions in the past, including Trend Micro, Symantec, and Kaspersky. The main difference between Sophos Intercept X and the other products is the client reservation feature. I believe that is a standalone point for Sophos as it is the only product that has it. It allows particular… more »

What other advice do I have?

Advice that I would have for people considering using virus scanning is that I, personally, would not use Sophos Endpoints. That is the simplest edition of the Sophos virus protection product line. I would use Intercept X Advanced as the entry-level product as the other, simpler product, is not… more »

What is most valuable?

I like the solution's ability to detect potentially unwanted programs. For some reason, it seems superior to other solutions, or at least in comparison to McAfee. I kind of like what they've got. It's relatively easy to use. The console's pretty good. The reporting is pretty good as well. In fact… more »

What needs improvement?

The pricing could be improved. In terms of general improvement, I can't think of any features that are lacking. It's a pretty solid solution. If they want to compete with bigger players, they should consider adding items like threat detection and website warnings.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I also use McAfee as well. I use them both and scan using both of them to compare results. I find that Malwarebytes typically picks up things McAfee misses. McAfee tends to hide the details for me and when it detects something and so quarantines it, McAfee just points you to the website, and usually… more »

What other advice do I have?

I'm just a user and a customer. I don't have a professional relationship with the solution. I'm using the latest version of the solution. I've lost the real-time scanning, so I use McAfee for that. I use Malwarebytes as a backup, an alternative antivirus. If I think my system's got something wrong… more »

What is most valuable?

The solution always has the most up-to-date software. The solution runs well. It's excellent at detecting viruses. The solution is very stable. Our organization can easily scale the solution. The solution is very compatible with Windows devices. The solution is very basic and easy to use.

What needs improvement?

The solution seems incapable of stopping the proxy connection. The proxy server seems to be bypassing the antivirus. It's an aspect they need to improve. The initial setup is complex. While it's compatible with Windows, it may not work as well with other operating systems. Reporting is not that good… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We work mostly with Kaspersky, as well as Trend Micro and Bitdefender.

What other advice do I have?

We're a Kaspersky partner. We have clients of different sizes and the solution works well for all of them. It's perfect for any sized company. It's a very good product. Everything is in a very professional environment. It's largely easy to set up. However, we've noticed that the RAM utilization is… more »

What is most valuable?

At this point what is most valuable is the interface, which is easy to navigate.

What needs improvement?

In the six months that I have been using CrowdStrike, it has not been able to detect anything. We have been using Trend Micro and it has detected some malicious activities. We have CrowdStrike conduct some inner forensic investigations in… more »

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

The pricing could be reduced. If it was more reasonable that would be great.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We are currently using CrowdStrike, and also running another AV because CrowdStike is not detecting any malicious activities and the other AV is. We are giving it some more time to see if anything happens. We decided to start using… more »

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The central management of the anti-virus features for our end user is a very valuable aspect of the solutions. We find it very good as a product.

What needs improvement?

In the future, we're looking forward to having a new synchronization firewall on the endpoint. The management console need improvement. I'd address the deployment side. If we could upgrade the deployment side to hand it off to the end-user, it would make it easier, as our campuses are far apart… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously used Trend Micro. We replaced it with Sophos. Trend Micro just didn't work for us. There were issues with the management file.

What other advice do I have?

We're looking forward to moving to the cloud and replacing our existing firewall when we move to Sophos XG. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.
