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.

All in all very happy and I highly recommend Sophos.
I have been using Sophos for more than 7 years now and have it installed on all my Macs. Easy to use, easy to install, great protection.
Since last year I have started experiencing trouble when backing up my Macs. Somehow there seems to be an cpompatility problem between Sophos and Timemachine and when backing up, I need to turn off scanning and live protection to make sure it goes quick. If it's not turned off, Time Machine announces a backup time of sometimes 120 hours.

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.
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).
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.
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.

Rock solid product with excellent support that offers superior protection for endpoints.
Need easier guidance within the management console for creating a support tickets.
Make sure you do POC on multiple endpoint products before choosing a solution for your company.

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.
It installed many services and apps on Windows. When you open add/remove or check the taskmgr, a lot of process!
If you have to support Windows, Mac, and Linux, this is the best option
