What do you like best?

The Sophos mobile security application offers security and protection to mobile devices such as smart phones that are always a gateway to malware and hackers, so it was essential to have a help and it was Sophos mobile security with its benefits of constant monitoring That allowed the security we were looking for. It offers Secure Wi-Fi options with which internet browsing is much more secure, as well as email protection for opening emails without problems. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The Sophos mobile security application for Android has presented certain update failures for some of the company's Android devices, particularly I have not had problems since it works well, however I have learned of other equipment whose updates are not performed properly.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Sophos mobile security has worked perfectly on most of the computers to which it was urged, I believe that the fault has been generated by the Android system versions and by incorrect settings of the application, so I recommend the application. Really fast and the queries made, have responded quickly, which em makes you feel satisfied to have a good service, on the other hand the attention is first, hopefully many will copy the quality of service offered by Sophos.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sophos mobile security has been the fundamental piece to give protection to our mobile endpoint, since we have it we have strengthened the security in the devices that were vulnerable in the company, since the mobile devices were a gateway that was not being monitored by therefore it was easy prey for hackers, fortunately we were able to do the implementation just before any attack and now we are completely protected.

What do you like best?

Siempre me gusta sentirme segura y protegida no solo en la vida personal sino también con mis equipos de trabajo y esa es justa la sensación que me da la aplicación del sofware Sophos Mobile, por eso al enterarme que existía, me alegró mucho saber que también puedo proteger mis equipos móviles incluyendo el teléfono y lo que mas me gusta es que, no tiene complicaciones a la hora de instalarse y es muy fácil de manejar, lo utilizamos en todos nuestros dispositivos Android Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

lo que no me gusta es que como hace inspecciones exhaustiva con el fin de brindar la mayor y mejor seguridad bloquea algunos enlaces o incluso paginas wed que son seguras, podemos decir que es como demasiado sensible a la hora de proteger.

Otra cosa que he notado desde que instale la aplicación Sophos Mobile en el teléfono es que como los servicios de Soplos inician en segundo plano consumen cierto porcentaje de la batería, de manera que ahora vivo con el cargador conectado al teléfono, por lo demás es un excelente Software.

Les damos las gracias por siempre estar trabajando para brindar a los Usuarios servicios como estos que hacen que nos sintamos seguros aunque sea con nuestros equipos de trabajo, sobre todo en esta era de tantos a los avances tecnológicos. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The administration platform of Sophos Central allows to unify the mobile devices that are granted to employees so that technology administrators can control and protect the entire organization on the same screen.

I have it installed on my mobile device downloaded from the Google Play Store and the phone is excellent, it protects networks, scanning against downloaded applications, web filters, scanning of QR codes, validation of device security; all in the same app.

And the most amazing thing is that it is free. It is worth downloading even from any platform. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

For this I want to comment that the mobile application is a bit heavy, it takes several megabytes to the device; but it works fine after installed.

And another negative aspect, but that is still good for that, is that it does not allow synchronization with your devices if you use the Sophos Home console or simply have it alone without any subscription.

I think that a good point to improve would be to be able to manage it from the web, even though you are not registered with any corporation for administration. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The Sophos Mobile app offers protection for

devices, networks and applications for your devices

Android and iOS without compromising performance or duration

battery; for that part they will not have any kind of problems.

Sophos Mobile monitors the security status of the

device continuously to ensure that you are

notify if a device has been compromised so they can safely test it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

One of the problems I had before was that I needed to install several applications to improve work performance, for example:

To scan QR codes, it was an application.

to filter web pages, another application.

For antivirus and ramsonware protection, other protection and so on.

Thanks to Sophos mobile, all this can be done with the same application; which increases productivity and safety. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like that it is a platform that brings everything you need for an MDM and more, it compete with VMware and citrix (MobileIron, Airwatch) and the best thing is that it brings a very attractive price, and it brings all the features that you may need, included: factory reset remotelly, geolocation, application control, web control, containers, and also the security layer (endpoint security) it can be used from the sophos central cloud console, or with an onpremise console, we used it a lot here, also we sell it and it is a very good solution Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

We have used it and I do not see any flaws. Why? Because it is compatible with Windows, Android, iOS, devices, and it also supports several protocols (Samsung, knox, LG etc), then that's why I think it's a very good solution.and I don't see any negative point so far. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

if you need a solution for take control of your user's devices, and you are thinking about BYOD strategies or teleworking it fits very well, besides the full protection of the endpoint (antivirus) it also give you the ability to admin very granular the policies that in your company you need (encryption, minimum security accepted, Whitelisted apps or blacklisted apps, control the use of camera inside any app and so on) i really recommend it you should give it a try Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For BYOD strategies It works very well, additional it has security components for cell phones very nice, it has very granular control of functions in the devices allowing activating or deactivating the camera, activate or deactivate the use of the microphone in applications such as WhatsApp, among others functions, that makes it granular, also we used it for tasks of self-service in the users, in case the equipment is lost or even when the company needs to control the consumption of data in 4G on it.

What do you like best?

I like that this software is very low maintenance. I barely have to do anything, but I know it is working from occasional notifications. My device is running smoothly so it must be working! Web protection is very important to my personal and professional work, so it is great knowing that Sophos Mobile is helping to capture and contain any threats. I've had plenty of devices in the past that slowly became more and more slow, lagging behind and stalling. But I haven't had this issue using the Mobile version for my device.

I have occasionally used the self-serve portal, and everything seems very streamlined and easy to understand. The design was intuitive and looked nice. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

As much as it is very easy to have a relatively hands-off experience, I do wish I could interact more with the software to see what threats exist and have been contained. It would be nice to get some tips for staying safe as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Knowing that my device is secure from viruses and other bugs gives me peace of mind. I do not have to worry about my safety and security of my personal and professional work being compromised. In a modern age of security being questioned, I do not feel worried using this software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

This software is a free download. I have an older iPhone 6s and this app tells me what is going on with random notifications. Everyone thinks that Apple is virus-proof and that just isn’t the case. This app warns you of rogue Web sites and e-mail attachments that are not safe. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The UI is profesionally designed with good looking interface. The functions are well displayed and of course working. Also, the app is the well strategized product of combining the mobile phone’s account and app security and WiFi’s diagnostics and security checking functionality. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It would be more convinient and useful for users and customer to have a better view of having the app operated if the features are put into categogies. Since I look at the app home screen and I am at first confused of what the features off the list are really used for based on their names and titles. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
