Pros

Sophos is a great antivirus defense for mac users, I recommend everyone getting it install, it is constantly in the background working and is the best defense that I have used.
I have been a Sophos customer since 1997, but I check and compare them every couple of years. The price for what you get is great and the features you get are first class and award winning.
We switched to Sophos recently and overall have been super happy with the change. We get notifications of issues.

Pros

With that said, the integration is amazing. I love the ease of deployment.
I like the direct integration with JAMF pro. The system is very great to allow me insight in to the individual users.
Jamf Protect is great for both home and business and it becomes even better when you use Jamf Protect to set up a virtual private network (VPN).

Cons

Sophos can be a little bit of a memory hog. On some devices we notice a slow down that does cause some complaints.
Server protection too asks for reboot when the app gets updated , which is a bit itchy feature.
Setting up users in the admin portal can also be tedious. If you don't add every user in the same way it can be difficult to keep user data as far as what you can see in the user interface.

Cons

Often times they will update the threats themselves.
There have been a few features that have been missing for a long time. For example, renaming a device using user info during deployment.
Problems navigating some menus. Sometimes it seems to be problematic.

Intercept X Endpoint

SOPHOS Firewall

Reviewed 5 years ago

Its a good software for big organisation to protect the systems and monitor the internet usage. It is worth to buy.

Pros

Easy monitoring the client from central server. We are able to set customized download limit to the end users. We could censor the unwanted websites at our campus. Client can check their daily usage limit and use accordingly. Sophos portal is very easy to manage and it can be accessed in remote login also.

Cons

There are some drawbacks in end user point of view. In an organisation the employee will roam around the campus and there are some occasions will happen to login in multiple computers and it is not supported since the admins block multiple logins. Data limit is really embarrassing. Authentication is automatically signed off if the systems is kept idle for sometime. I think Sophos is bit late in updating the databases.

Pros

The software is pretty easy to manage and update. Overall, the software is able to protect against most threats.

Cons

Not really good with zero day unless you buy the exploit license. Change of management servers can also be a pain and requires reinstallation of the AV client.

Sophos Endpoint Protection - great value, excellent protection

Reviewed 2 years ago

It has been one of our best purchase in our overall security purchase.

Pros

Everything you need in an endpoint protect product is here. Cloud console, great ransomeware protection, integration with other Sophos products. API enabled for other integration.

Cons

There are really no cons when compare to competitors, or course each product will have some feature better than each other but when taking a comprehensive look at endpoint protection Sophos is a well ended product with a competitive price.

Great software to protect endpoint threats

Reviewed 5 years ago

A must have, a great investment to avoid threats and data corruption.

Pros

Great software to protect endpoint threats like viruses and malware, the software also allows for customization so that even the internet usage can be restricted to certain website and times.

Cons

Its very pricey if you want to use the full product offerings, so big companies enjoy more.

Vendor response

Thank you for the kind review. We're glad you're finding Sophos Endpoint Protection valuable.

Good price and easy to use protection for pc and Mac

Pros

It works with both pc and Mac computers. This flexibility was a must when we were looking to protect both platforms. Overall a good value with a simple intuitive interface.

Cons

Overall works well. Simple interface, though this may limit user ability to modify scans or do more robust activities.

Intercept X Endpoint

A complete endpoint security solution

Reviewed 2 years ago

InterceptX is a very good solution. It integrates realtime protection, anti-ransomware engine, anti-exploit, behavioural engine and IPS. This helps customers to protect their environments from known and unknown malware and attacks.

Pros

InterceptX implements a complete anti-exploit solutions that protects all the process from all the known exploitation techniques. Anti-Ransomware engine is able to restore files that have been encrypted.

Cons

The alerts in the console are only related to detected malware and not to XDR incidents. THe real time engine is too heavy and cpu consuming.

Excellent Endpoint Protection!

Reviewed 4 years ago

Intercept X Endpoint protects better than any other product I've tried to date. I would highly recommend it.

Pros

Intercept X Endpoint catches things that Symantec didn't. I really like the heartbeat feature that connects to the XG Firewall to prevent or contain viruses and malware.

Cons

I have so far not found anything that I dislike about this software other than the price is a little higher that the competitors however, the competitors don't protect to the degree that this one does.

sophos

Reviewed 3 years ago

solid product with many protections. Cost isn't unreasonable and with added appliances for firewall protection

Pros

we use sophos to protect several hundred endpoints and 10's of servers. It alerts us to outdated versions or missed updates. Blocks many intrusions and allows for people to be grouped into policies based on network access needed.

Cons

Machines often need to be rebooted to stay current on updates and end users dont always restart leading to emails of outdated products

Intercept X Endpoint

Reliable security solution

Reviewed 4 years ago

The solution is the next generation of Sophos protection software, and I am quite used to their way of thinking. It helped in the past year to protect the IT system in our company, and I think it will continue to do so. Once it is set up, the end-users are not even noticing its presence.

Pros

The best thing is that you can relly on Sophos to provide you with most up to date protection definitions, and to be able to accurately select the level of protection for each group of users or devices. The fact that all data are securely passing trough their central protection system gives even more assurance. This is truly a professional solution and goes beyond usual protection.

Cons

None so far. Indeed, you must have a certified person to set it up, but this is to be expected of such a complex solution.

Intercept X Endpoint

Great and reliable antivirus

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

Network security is very important to my company, and one of the widely used and recommended antivirus programs that users need to have installed in order to remote VPN is Sophos, so that says a lot to me about the reliability of the software. So far I have had no issues and have not been infected by any viruses since using the tool. It seems to be a very robust tool and works to protect my files, downloads, browsers, and network activity. The settings are also easy to change.

Cons

The cloud based configuration is interesting.. Maybe I'm just not used to it, but if one where to have no internet connection then you can't modify settings. But then at the same time, the cloud based settings allow one to globally modify all the clients that are on the account, so I could see that being a powerful feature.

Sophos, best protection

Reviewed 6 years ago

Sophos supplies top security with maximum functionality

Pros

Sophos allows us to protect all the devices on our domain and keep them free from virus'. Sophos comes with a simple installer that can be used on either Windows or Mac OSX, this allows for quick, easy installations so we can quickly configure our devices to ensure less downtime. Sophos allows us to create multiple different profiles depending on the user or department. Once the profiles are configured, the permissions will be applied against the device instantly. We can also approve individual websites or applications, this allows us to keep a close eye on devices across the group whilst ensuring security is tight.

Cons

We have noticed with some hardware, although the are the same model, Sophos seems to block one but not the other. Obviously the hardware differs slightly but Sophos should recognise the model. Due to the number of users we have, this is a constant maintenance task.

A Great Start

Reviewed 3 years ago

This has allowed us to gain strong endpoint protections.. especially when switching to M1 Macs that (at the time) other software providers didn't yet support.

Pros

I love the heuristic approach to protecting our endpoints. This has the potential to be very effective at mitigating, preventing, and isolating rouge processes/malware.

Cons

Assigning licenses and installing could be easier. Full integration with the Jamf dashboard would be nice. We look forward to more robust pre-canned mitigation workflows to work with.

Jamf Protect

Comprehensive endpoint security suite for macOS

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

Designed exclusively, for macOS which can be easily seen in its architecture and implementation for any macOS Admin. It is feature rich and is one of the few solutions to leverage the new Endpoint Security framework to prevent (at process level) threats from even launching. Lightweight and by far the lowest impact of other solutions tested and used. Support is excellent and product is updated several time a month with new features and improvements based on feedback.

Cons

More documentation, examples and better marketing and comparison against other solutions would be useful. With its newer approach for security, large range of features and design exclusively for macOS and Endpoint Security framework, traditional security professionals often miss and don't see the benefits of Protect from a preventative (vs. reactive) approach.
