We pay around $10 a year for each endpoint, including support. There are no additional fees.

Licensing is reasonably priced, particularly when you compare it to a solution like Semantic which is more expensive. Sophos is an affordable product.

We need to pay for this solution currently, however, if we switch to Bitlocker, it would be free as it's a part of Microsoft's OS.

It would be great if the price of the solution was lower than the current price. If we are to sell this particular solution to smaller businesses and not just enterprise businesses, it needs to be lower.

Licensing is on a yearly basis and the pricing could be better.

The price could be lower. I think it's one of the disadvantages of the solution.

The licenses are renewed every three years. The licenses are dependant on the number of users and computers you have to protect. This is a complete product that is offering full-feature bundles. On occasion, if a customer is looking for better performance with their email protection, I offer a separate appliance for email protection. These features can be extracted from the firewall and used as a separate dedicated appliance to address the issues surrounding email protection. This is for on-premises versions only and is available to everyone. This is an extra feature which would be an additional cost. It's a good solution for the SMB market but not enterprise.

Licensing for this solution is on a yearly basis. They tell you from day one how much it costs and what features you get. One of the great things about Sophos is if we have any added features that they send out, it will be included in the pricing. The price will not increase.

The cost is not cheap. It's a rather expensive solution.

We have a yearly license with Sophos which is around $1000-$1200 or so per annum. There are no additional costs beyond the standard licensing fee.

The licensing costs depend on the series. For example, XG 85 can be around $200. If you go to ACC or to a four or five-year enterprise solution, you will find these devices can cost $10,000. It depends on the series.

I am an information technology officer with experience working in government. We are currently evaluating BitLocker with Windows, Sophos Safeguard, and Checkpoint Full Disk Encryption. What are the advantages and disadvantages of these products? Which would you recommend?  Thanks! I appreciate the help.

I work with security firms and with the Symantec software there was a log in page before the computer would boot. Does bitlocker perform this way?

By Darren Chaker : I would send a screen shot of my own login screen, but the gist of it is - it sounds as though your device has full disk encryption enabled. Bitlocker has a light blue screen that appears when the computer is booted requesting a passphrase, and will explicitly say "Bitlocker". If using Symantec (PGP), the top third of the screen will be gold, and bottom two thirds of the screen will be grey with "passphrase" near the box you'd enter it into. Hope this was some assistance to you.
