Sophos - whats the attraction / whats the alternative ?
Hi Guys (and Gals!),
I've seen in my travels loads of businesses and schools using Sophos and I have always wondered one simple thing - why ?
I'm not saying it's bad or anything as my curiosity is a result of my lack of exposure to actually using/managing the product as the few times I have come across personally was when it's has caused a problem with something else and we'd been called int to look at the situation (e.g. multiseat / server application solution stopped working all of a sudden etc).
Is it a pricing / features / management thing that drives people to choose Sophos over other products on the market ?
We have been a ESET partner for a number of years and I've always been rebuffed/met opposition when suggesting people take a look at it, our VAR arm has about 30 small businesses on SLA's who all use ESET (either NOD32 AV or Smart Security) and I can't remember the last time they reported an issue with the AV (last time was a issue with SBS) or a breach and I've definitiely not heard of or seen it attacking itself ! (*cough*sophos*cough*)
I'd love to hear some feedback from people on the above and not only on Sophos / ESET but what else you guys are using to plug the holes !
