We currently have about 13 staff using Intercept X. We use it to secure and protect our devices as well as monitor projects and do some product reviews. You can also use it to block devices as needed, like if you just want to block a work point category.

The primary use of the solution is to block threats. It contains a quick queries engine that can help us figure out where all threats are coming from.

We are using it for endpoint antivirus, hardening, and some DLP policies. Its version is the current one.

Our primary use case is for securing the endpoints or endpoint users and Sophos servers.

We have deployed Sophos Intercept X in our environment, both on desktop as well as server environments. We have set up policies in Sophos. For example, there is a web console that can allow or block websites, and you choose what peripheral control you want your desktop environment to connect to. We use threat protection and we configure the settings to what we want to enable or disable on a particular device. If a device had a threat on it we can disable the device. The application control allows us to limit the application that users can install on their devices.

My client is a BPO with three branches. One branch is in the US, and two branches are in India. We are using Sophos for the best connectivity. We are using Sophos for endpoint, DLP, and encryption. We are also using it for content filtering and managing security policies. Currently, we are using its latest version.

We primarily brought on the solution to replace Symantec's product, as Symantec was purchased by Broadcom. The company in question has a lot of stuff, and 40 users, and is a pure Windows environment. They don't do anything on Mac or Linux, for example.

We have split our operations into work at home and on-premise. We have over 2,000 or 3,000 work-at-home agents. Some of them do not connect to us via a virtual private network. They connect directly to our CRM clients. In order for us to ensure that we have visibility and to be able to protect our PCs, we are using Sophos Intercept X via the cloud.

We use it for all of its features, with the exception of mobile device management. We use it for DLP, malware protection, some forms of asset tracking, application blocking, and so forth. It is deployed on-premises and on the cloud. We are using its latest version.

We primarily use the solution as endpoint protection as well as for endpoint detection and response. It's like an EDR. It's basically used to prevent ransomware.

The main use cases of this solution are for protection from ransomware and malware. Although we don't have EDR because of its high cost, we do have the capability to filter the website. Our use case is more about capturing crypto and the like that can encrypt files. I'm a system administrator and we are customers of Sophos.

This product is basically used for detecting ransomware. It will monitor all of the ransomware threats. Since the first ransomware attack happened in 2017, WannaCry, it has been a global threat. It is a vulnerability that is impacting a lot of devices and computers in the network. Ransomware threats have been identified as one of the first priorities in the entire info security segment. Information security consists of various things including endpoint detection, threat detection, and then your SIEMs like QRadar or ArcSight. At the early point of detection, Sopho is going to stop the ransomware. The question that has been there since 2017 is how it will identify the ransomware and how does it stop the attack from happening to the network. WannaCry was the first large ransomware attack, which has impacted various regions and is a very high severity threat. Since then, a lot of things have been lined up for mitigating the risk, like WannaCry.

We are a small consulting group. We are not really end-users but we sell to them. We are primarily recommending Sophos Central Intercept X as a client solution for endpoint security. They are going to be using it for the security apps, their desktops, and there is a server version as well. I would think that someone buying the server product would expect that to include endpoint security, including ransomware protection, advanced threat protection, and zero-day threat protection. Many of our users also use Sophos firewalls and the solutions integrate with each other nicely.

The EDR (Enhanced Data Detection and Response) and the DLP (Data Loss Prevention) components are probably the biggest areas of the product that we employ. We also make use of web content filtering and application control as well.

We were recently the target of a ransomware attack and we used this product to clean it from our environment. Our in-place endpoint protection is just signature-based and it was not able to identify which device had passed the malware. I am in charge of monitoring at this time.

The primary use case is basically having a synchronized perspective on what's going on between endpoints, firewalls, and whatever other types of preventative measures the customer has.

We use Intercept X Advanced along with Sophos EDR (Enhanced Data Detection and Response). We use it for our servers and clients as advanced protection. It is not just a simple virus scanning product. We use it to work with clients and it is installed on five servers. At this time we have only installed it at one customer site. But we plan to continue to expand.

I work with a number of Sophos products, mainly those managed through Sophos Central. I provide general support for this solution, and my experience is with deployment and some configuration. I have been using the premium edition at home for more than a year, and have been dealing with training and support for approximately six months. We are using this solution for cloud-based support, and using a cloud-based deployment.

We are providing this product and support for it in many sectors like health care, retail, sports, and communication sectors. We are also working with Sophos, but with Sophos Endpoint, not XG, or Sophos UTM. We work with Raya (Contact Center) that provides services here in Egypt (they are also using Sophos 550 XG models).
