A comparison: why should you consider making the move from Sophos Endpoint Protection to SentinelOne?

When it comes to picking which endpoint security solution is right for your business it can often be a tricky decision to decide which option on the market best aligns with your overall business goals & objectives.  

To help you with this decision, in this blog article, we are going to compare two of the best endpoint solutions on the market: SentinelOne & Sophos Endpoint Protection. 

Before we get into the features of both solutions, we are going to briefly give you an overview of each solution. 

What is SentinelOne? 

Put simply, SentinelOne brings together prevention detection, response, remediation and forensics in one platform which is brought life through artificial intelligence. Through the use of SentinelOne businesses are able to detect malicious behaviour across a number of vectors, quickly eliminating threats through automated responses and able to adapt their defences to even the most sophisticated cyberattacks. 

What is Sophos Endpoint Protection? 

Sophos Interpt X is a platform that is used to both detect and nullify endpoint threats. It primarily focuses on providing a simple and secure platform. Furthermore, it gives one accessible management console for IT departments to manage all IT devices which the client is able to run either in the cloud or on-premise. Its mantra focuses on automating the process of identifying threats, isolating them to stop them spreading and removing them from all devices. 

Now that we’ve provided an overview of what each endpoint solution does, we are now going to compare the two sets of features.
