Good day,

Why settle for one antivirus, when one can get 12 on the cloud.

I just configured a Sophos AV server and pushed the endpoint product out to over 1000 devices. I could comment on any questions you might have on Sophos, but never used AVG other than the free download for local on local workstations. Sophos does seem a lot easier to configure than the McAfee Orchestrator server I worked on before. Sophos has cleaned most of our machines. I only have about 5 out of 1100 devices that I will need to manually log into and try and clean or re image. What are you hoping Sophos will do that AVG will not?

well Sophos seems to be more proactive, we got ransomeware not detected by AVG as its testing for files signatures adn ransomeware is keep getting new modes while sophos claim that they are more  proactive and can block it without file signature. are there in Cons?

Good day,

One can have a cloud trail. Go to Sophos web site, and choose from their Products Sophos Cloud.
Once the cloud manager is install on your machine(s), it will show on your own Sophos portal.
It is that easy to implement and deploy Sophos cloud on PCs and Servers.
