They're making improvements all the time but I'd like to see visibility into the spam emails so you can easily see them directly on the dashboard.

They should allow copier release without having to create email accounts. I've run into situations, especially when I'm using Office 365; if we're actually using copiers to send emails (of course you'd barely actually have to set up an email account, you just set it off to relay). If your exchange environment is only set to accept email from Sophos Email servers, those messages will never get delivered. Sophos flags them as spam and kills them even before they get there.

The solution seems to be very good at iterating on past editions and continues to improve itself. I don't know if it's truly lacking everything. It would be great if it was a bit better at protecting from the endpoints. The solution's technical support is slow and unresponsive. You need to book time in order to get support.

I have a couple of clients who are using this solution. We use this solution to scan email for viruses.

Most of the time, Sophos is used as a mail room. It sits in front of an email server, either on cloud or on-premise. I'm a technical engineer and we are distributors of Sophos.

I agree with many of these observations.  A trend I noticed as a security professional was that putting bandaids on legacy technology buys little protection and the bigger your enterprise the harder it is to embrace newer safer technologies.  As an example, Microsoft Active Directory is entrenched in most organizations but is so complex and so relied upon it has become a major attack vector.  Newer offerings bring a compelling alternative but the difficulty in switching increases exponentially with the size and complexity of the existing environment.  Ultimately, even the cloud offerings (Web2) are being replaced by Web3 (blockchain-based) technologies offering Immutable file storage and backup today.

Phishing is the starting point of most cyberattacks. When sending malicious messages or creating a clone site, attackers use psychological techniques and social engineering tools, so protecting against such campaigns is not an easy task for information security professionals. To protect against phishing attacks, you can use different tools built into browsers and mail servers, as well as “ov...

These attacks are inevitable and organizations need to plan for fast and secure recovery.  It's no longer necessary to take days or weeks to reimage hundreds or endpoints. Solutions are available that can restore systems to pre-attack condition in minutes.
