Sophos has a strong focus on given admins granular controls and policies to stop threats from reaching devises. The management component is a key feature of their EPP platform, with management able to filter web content, set device controls, decide what apps can be downloaded and even decide what peripherals devices can use. This can all greatly increase the overall security of an organisation, especially if a large number of employees work remotely. Alongside these threat protection controls, the detection and response is powerful. Based on Intercept X, a machine learning powered threat detection system acquired by Sophos in 2017, this platform is adept at isolating and removing advanced Endpoint threats.
The management console is clean and accessible with customers suggesting that it’s easy to configure and manage and works well. It’s cloud based and so can be accessed from anywhere, with a full range of reports and controls. It also works as one management console with all of the other Sophos security products including Secure Email Gateways and Web Filtering. This makes it an easy option to recommend for existing Sophos customers. For other customers looking for Endpoint Protection with a range of strong management controls and threat protection, this is a good option for you to consider.
