Number One and Smartest Solution

Best solution that you can even sell over other AVs as an add on even if they are on a current contract.

Pros

It is the best software I have found for COMPLETE ransomware protection.

Cons

Price for Endpoint, Intercept X and EDR all adds up fast and can scare clients.

Reasons for Choosing Intercept X Endpoint

Ingram Micro billing was a huge plus over pandas own billing department that kept over billing me. ESET takes to long to setup. I was up and going in three minutes with Sophos.

Sophos Intercept X

Best Antivirus on the market i really like it and i am very glad that we decided this over others.

Pros

Best Antivirus Software i ever used, the administration console it is very intuitive and easy to use, you have a lot of alerts and as a plus you have a web filter.

Cons

i really can find a Con, what i can say that i really dont like but i understand why is working that way , when you have restricted policies for external devices (usb , printers ) and you need to use one, the process to approve a usb device it is tricky and complicated.

Reasons for Choosing Intercept X Endpoint

we like the demo and the price was a little more cheaper than others besides it has a very good Garner evaluation

All-in-One endpoint protection at low price

You don't notice that the client is running. All rules ares stablished from it´s central web administrative console and are deployed almost instantly.

Pros

DLP(Data Lost Prevention) features are useful and easy to implement on workstations Useful Web application filter to implement specific rules to users and/or equipments Lighweight client

Cons

It has by default some web site urls locked, that aren´t considered as risk sites, so you have to disable this rules to allow the access.

Great protection, however...

Overall it is a great protection option if you are looking for a big company, depending on your work, purpose of it and if you don't mind having to constantly request access to blocked applications... other than that, good product.

Pros

Sophos offers great overall protection, specially for big companies and networks. It is worth the money and value.

Cons

Only con I found with this product, which is to me a big pet peeve, is the need to contact our IT department because Sophos tends to block several applications and software used on my work space. Only way to get authorized to continue with my work is by contacting IT (product administration) so I can get allowance to continue through these checkpoints.

Apply polices from the Sophos Central cloud portal.

Overall its a powerful security tool. It does what it says.

Pros

This is one of the features of Sophos Intercept X Endpoint protection. We can apply policies to devices ( PC, servers, laptops). These include policies s.a Threat Protection, Peripheral Control, Application Control, Data Loss Prevention, Web Control, Update Management & Windows Firewall.

Cons

It's a great product and we haven't faced any issues with it. Server protection too asks for reboot when the app gets updated , which is a bit itchy feature.
