Sophos is the leading brand for information security. Sophos is a complete solution that has a range of firewalls and all of the software bundles from the endpoint to the data center. Along with our service providers and our team, who have a good understanding of the product, we use Sophos technicians to do the webcast for our customers. This occurs as part of the process, but typically not during the implementation phase. Most of the time the customer doesn't require special features to be added. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

We use the cloud deployment model of the solution. We're a Sophos partner. The solution is good. It doesn't have a heavy lag like others. I'd rate it seven out of ten.

We are using the cloud version of this solution because the on-premises version does not have anti-ransomware or machine learning capability. My advice for anybody who is implementing this solution is to also use the cloud version, rather than the on-premises edition. This is especially true if they have teleworkers or mobile users that are often off-premises. The security of our data is important. One of our teams has a person who lost their laptop, and the team was not using this solution so it was not encrypted. We consider that to be data leakage. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Sophos has another cloud platform that supports firewall management, and it is very easy to deploy. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

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

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 eight out of ten.

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 where customers need encryption technology.

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 attacked by ransomware. It became a challenge for them. However, by installing Sophos Intercept X for servers, you could lock down that server, so that no executive file or no program would run unless you unlock them. The programs that would function would only be the ones that you have listed on Sophos. I didn't know that existed until I started using Sophos Endpoint. The antivirus is not just running on my system to protect it against viruses, it's also allowing me to lock my systems so that nobody can execute anything without my authorization. It gives me enormous peace of mind. I would rate the solution ten out of ten.

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.
