We primarily brought on the solution to replace Symantec's product, as Symantec was purchased by Broadcom. The company in question has a lot of stuff, and 40 users, and is a pure Windows environment. They don't do anything on Mac or Linux, for example.

It's an endpoint, which means it's an antivirus that you must install on your server, laptop, or customer PC. As a result, it can be on-premises for Windows or Linux. You can also install this endpoint if you host a server on that cloud.

This is a sophisticated antivirus with numerous features. It has AI, (Artificial Intelligence), it can stop viruses, malware, and ransomware, as well as protect the PC you are using, the server you are using, and all of your workstations.

Intercept X has versions, such as Intercept X, Intercept X Advanced, and Intercept X Advanced with XDR. It requires a long technical explanation, but in brief, it can protect you from being attacked or hacked, because it protects the OS, your operating system, from being compromised.

Network Administrator at a tech services company with 51-200 employees

We use Intercept X Advanced along with Sophos EDR (Enhanced Data Detection and Response).  

We use it for our servers and clients as advanced protection. It is not just a simple virus scanning product.  

We use it to work with clients and it is installed on five servers. At this time we have only installed it at one customer site. But we plan to continue to expand.

The EDR (Enhanced Data Detection and Response) and the DLP (Data Loss Prevention) components are probably the biggest areas of the product that we employ. We also make use of web content filtering and application control as well.

IT Manager at a construction company with 201-500 employees

The main use cases of this solution are for protection from ransomware and malware. Although we don't have EDR because of its high cost, we do have the capability to filter the website. Our use case is more about capturing crypto and the like that can encrypt files. I'm a system administrator and we are customers of Sophos.

EA
IT Infrastracture Consultant at a healthcare company with 201-500 employees

We were recently the target of a ransomware attack and we used this product to clean it from our environment. Our in-place endpoint protection is just signature-based and it was not able to identify which device had passed the malware.

I am in charge of monitoring at this time.

JT
Founder at a tech services company with 1-10 employees

We are a small consulting group. We are not really end-users but we sell to them. We are primarily recommending Sophos Central Intercept X as a client solution for endpoint security. They are going to be using it for the security apps, their desktops, and there is a server version as well. I would think that someone buying the server product would expect that to include endpoint security, including ransomware protection, advanced threat protection, and zero-day threat protection.  

Many of our users also use Sophos firewalls and the solutions integrate with each other nicely.

We have split our operations into work at home and on-premise. We have over 2,000 or 3,000 work-at-home agents. Some of them do not connect to us via a virtual private network. They connect directly to our CRM clients. In order for us to ensure that we have visibility and to be able to protect our PCs, we are using Sophos Intercept X via the cloud.

This product is basically used for detecting ransomware. It will monitor all of the ransomware threats. Since the first ransomware attack happened in 2017, WannaCry, it has been a global threat. It is a vulnerability that is impacting a lot of devices and computers in the network.

Ransomware threats have been identified as one of the first priorities in the entire info security segment. Information security consists of various things including endpoint detection, threat detection, and then your SIEMs like QRadar or ArcSight.

At the early point of detection, Sopho is going to stop the ransomware. The question that has been there since 2017 is how it will identify the ransomware and how does it stop the attack from happening to the network. WannaCry was the first large ransomware attack, which has impacted various regions and is a very high severity threat. Since then, a lot of things have been lined up for mitigating the risk, like WannaCry.

Founder, Director at a tech services company with 1-10 employees

One of the best use cases involves synchronized security staff, which allows us to manage both the firewall and the anti-virus features from the cloud. They work in tandem with each other. So, if there is any threat detected by the endpoint, it communicates information concerning this change to the firewall. For that particular client, at the firewall, it can update all other endpoints into the network to check if the same threat is visible on any other machine. Then, corrective action can be taken collectively with a single click.

SS
Cyber Security Analyst at a educational organization with 1,001-5,000 employees

We have deployed Sophos Intercept X in our environment, both on desktop as well as server environments. We have set up policies in Sophos. For example, there is a web console that can allow or block websites, and you choose what peripheral control you want your desktop environment to connect to. 

We use threat protection and we configure the settings to what we want to enable or disable on a particular device. If a device had a threat on it we can disable the device. 

The application control allows us to limit the application that users can install on their devices.
