Sophos Endpoint Antivirus Software


 

Sophos Endpoint Antivirus software combines defense against malware with a flexible remote management tool. The anti-malware protection is designed to identify, block or remove threats, thus protecting computers and servers from viruses, adware, spyware and other infections.

Web protection adds a layer of defense, which prevents attacks originating from infected websites, scanning for and blocking threats before they can affect devices.

Sophos Endpoint Antivirus also features both device and application control, which enables an administrator to set rules governing the use of removable media (such as USB sticks), as well as mobile and wireless devices. Unauthorized applications and devices can be prevented from accessing the network, thus preventing the spread of malware and reducing the risk of data loss.

Finally, Sophos Endpoint Antivirus includes a centralized management console, which enables an administrator to monitor computers on the network, to create and deploy policies and to clean infected computers.

N/A

As we have many Mac and Linux users, we tried to find the best solution for these systems and for Windows as well. Not an easy thing.
Finally, despite Sophos was not our choice for Windows, we liked it so much that we decided to choose it for Mac and Linux systems.
Sophos EndPoint Protection doesn't eat much resources as many other Antivirus do on those systems which was one of our priority.

Pros

Easy to use
Very Low system resources consumption on OS X and most Linux systems.
Easy to install and manage.
Management Console has everything and looks new and very nice (2016).

Cons

No quick scans.
Can not install the agent for OS X and Linux from the management console but it is possible to push it on Windows.

Advice to Others

Not sure this is the best EndPoint Protection for Windows, but this is actually the best for Mac and Linux users available on the market.

We evaluated many antivirus and went to the conclusion that none is perfect. Sophos run nice on Mac and Linux, which is hard to find. We had no other options than choice Sophos! All in.

Likes Least

It installed many services and apps on Windows. When you open add/remove or check the taskmgr, a lot of process!

Recommendations

If you have to support Windows, Mac, and Linux, this is the best option
