The key reasons why to choose Cynet 360 over Sophos

Robust Protection and Greater Visibility of Your Environment icon

Robust Protection and Greater Visibility of Your Environment

Cynet XDR offers full visibility into endpoint, user, and network based threats, in addition to enhanced defenses with deception technology. 

The Cynet 360 platform is a full security solution ready to use out of the box. No hidden fees, no paywalls.

As an EDR, Sophos only sees endpoint threats, primarily relying on traditional and signature-based detection. Additionally, the platform does not offer many solutions out of the box, instead requiring costly upgrades and add-ons.

Alert Management and Risk Assessment  icon

Alert Management and Risk Assessment

Cynet XDR leverages multiple telemetry streams to accurately assess and prioritize threats with a clear, easy to use interface. 

Cynet alerts include risk scores, rich context, and accurate prioritization that make it easy to focus on what’s really important.

Sophos offers a different dashboard for each alert category, with each only showing the five most recent events and little context. This leads to a poorer understanding of the environment status. Additionally, Sophos only offers simplistic alert risk indicators.

Streamlined Operations with Response Automation icon

Streamlined Operations with Response Automation

Cynet provides automated response workflows to relieve overworked security teams that may not have the bandwidth to respond to every threat. 

Cynet provides fully automated remediation actions across files, hosts, users, and networks.

Sophos only offers the basic host remediation actions, and virtually no endpoint remediations. Additionally, resolving issues requires heavy manual input via command line. Sophos’ root cause analysis also offers fairly imprecise results.
