We're a Sophos partner. We have a business relationship with the company. I would recommend the solution. Overall, I would rate it eight out of ten.

I would recommend this solution. It is a good solution for small firms that don't have very sophisticated requirements. If you are a large firm with a lot of specific requirements, then obviously, you need to do your homework, but for a small firm, it is fine. It is easy to install and administer. I would rate Sophos EPP Suite an eight out of ten.

We might increase usage down the track but not for now, things are very uncertain with the coronavirus. If there was a guide available, that would be helpful for securing of the network. I would rate this solution an eight out of 10.

My advice for anybody who is implementing EPP Suite is to work with their integration team to learn the ins and outs of the product. They have got to spend a lot of time planning the process with Sophos, and Sophos has a team in place to help with that. Overall, I would say that it is a good endpoint solution. I think that we're using every feature that they have. That said, I'm sure that there are some things that I'm missing. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

We're just a Sophos customer. We don't have a special relationship with the client. We're using the latest version of the solution. In terms of adopting this technology, I'd advise other organizations to work with their integration team and know the products in and out before getting started. They will have to spend a lot of time planning the process with Sophos. However, Sophos has a team that will help companies do that, which really helps simplify the process. We personally didn't use them for the integration piece, but we did have the conversation with how to get it deployed, and testing, and all those kind of things within our environment. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten.

Although I don't know the version number, I'm using the most up to date one. I'd advise organizations considering implementing the solution to first consider their requirements. They need to know what they are looking for. There are a lot of vendors out there that offer many of the same features. However, if there's just one critical feature that's necessary, you need to be sure it will work correctly for your company. You also need to make sure you are choosing something that is compatible with other solutions that intersect. We've had experiences where we thought that a certain piece of software would work with Sophos and we realized that it didn't. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten.

We're looking forward to moving to the cloud and replacing our existing firewall when we move to Sophos XG. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

I have clients that both use the on-premises and cloud deployment models. I'm a consultant and I advise the clients based on their environments and current needs. Central management is one thing that stands out with this solution. Other products are now catching up in terms of offering central management. With Sophos, you can manage all the products from one central dashboard. You don't have to install different management consoles. The product is pretty straightforward for the average user. You cannot choose a more complete Sophos EPP Suite, especially if you're looking for a secure environment. You can secure both the network, the infrastructure and the gateways and share security information. Synchronized security is something I would advise others to look into when they're considering a product. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate Sophos as a nine.

We use the on-premises deployment model. Our experience with Sophos has been mixed. They need to follow up with their local partners to ensure whatever issues their clients are having are resolved. At this point, I wouldn't recommend the solution to others. I'd rate the solution five out of ten. Earlier, when we installed the solution, we didn't have too many challenges. Challenges didn't start until we started getting reports of people having viruses on their computers when Sophos was running, which makes me concerned that it isn't a secure solution.

On a scale from one to ten, where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate Sophos EPP (EndPoint Protection) Suite as an eight. I think there's always something which could be better, but I might not know what. Really I could give it a nine because I can recommend the product as an excellent solution.

Part of the product that can be improved is the detection of other antivirus software. We had some trouble one time installing the product because there was a third-party antivirus product that we needed to remove before we could install Sophos. That detection in the installer could be better. It can easily be solved but does not have to be a problem in the first place. Pricing could be improved because it is a bit expensive. It would be nice if there were more capability to configure the notifications. We do get some notifications when a virus is detected or something is wrong, but we get notifications that the machine has to be restarted or other issues that should be handled by different people or different departments. There should be some distinction as to which notification type we want to send to a particular destination. That's something that should definitely be better in an enterprise solution.

If you are not an IT expert, the solution is difficult to use. So it needs to be simpler for a non-IT person so that when you have an issue, you can you know that the solution is just a click away. Except for the more advanced things. So in terms of usage, the management tools, monitoring, and dashboard should be easier to use.
