Thank you for the response.
Can you elaborate on Sophos' reporting limitations? I have briefly worked
with the reporting section through the management console. I found the UI
confusing, almost like you have to design the layout of reports before being
able to generate them. With that said, the dashboard section of the console
was rather pleasant and easy to use.
Has anyone else on this list used Sophos?

We have been running Sophos now for 6 Months and the only problem I
have had was with getting rid of out Trend installation. Of the ones
we evaluated Sophos was the only one with tools that attempt to remove
old AV installs, but Trend just won't cleanly remove without manual
Other than that the suite works well out of the box, although we have
not yet setup the NAC and Encryption. Something they are lacking is
reporting, I have been able to get what I need with some Excel
"programming" but it is actually really aweful.
