"One of the most valuable features of Sophos Mobile is the Wifi password.""The security features work well.""In terms of valuable features, we liked the lock feature, the roll-out white feature, and the find feature. I think that Sophos had a GPS locator, so you could figure out where the phone was from a GPS location.""They always add more features to this product.""The most valuable feature is the mobile device management capability. You can easily manage all of your mobile devices."

Cons
"The one thing that I know that they're working on, that's not quite there in the product, is the artificial intelligence aspect."

More McAfee MVISION Mobile Cons →

"To manage the Apple devices is not that straightforward there are a lot of features the other third parties solutions are offering which Sophos Mobile is not.""In terms of what could be improved, the initial configuration and setup of the environment could probably be made a little bit easier. There are so many pieces that go into it. Intune is absolutely insane and Sophos is better, but it still is a bit complex to get it all set up correctly.""They continue to work on integration with mobile device management and mobile security. They are improving the protection but I think that the capabilities still need to be enhanced.""It could be more secure.""The features of Sophos Mobile could improve. The way the system works together could be better. Additionally, the integration with other Sophos products could improve."
