Suggest you check out
- Not all Enterprise feature is available in Central and it is in progress. This may or may not be an influencing factor in your short term decision
- Consider a staged approach. For example,  
roll out a site as a pilot, and review suitability and issues if any via 30 day trial.
- Protect your existing management server with Sophos Central you should first uninstall the previous management and client software before re-installing the Sophos Central endpoint solution.
- There are no supported scenarios for deploying the client software un-managed.  The endpoint software is required to communicate with Sophos Central Admin to obtain updating credentials and to therefore download the anti-virus component of the product.  
- To provide reassurance on a common concern, since scanning runs locally on each machine, confidential files such as those containing employees' home addresses will not be transmitted to the cloud.
