I'm really enjoying Sophos Home Premium too. It really is solid, very light on my system and very effective. I know some people hate Sophos, but personally I agree with everything you said above. It's got sigs, cloud, HMP, HMPA. It really is impressive. I've got a 1 year free license for participating in the Beta, but I definitely would pay for this product. I'm just about to install it on my daily driver machine and team it up with VS or CF. Lucky bugger you getting a lifetime license for Sophos Home Premium AND a Sandstorm Appliance.A guy I know works at Sophos and gave me a lifetime license code for this. (and a Sandstorm Appliance shipped to me) I dropped it on a test machine and so far so good, It's actually pretty darn strong with HMPA integrated into it. It's web filtration is really effective as well.
I pointed a SIEM to it, and so far so good. Virtually 100% of it's activity is fully encrypted. Updates, Cloud Scans, all fully encrypted. The telemetry appears extremely minimal on it. It 'feels' like an enterprise grade product with the web portal being the method to configure/manage endpoints.
It feels very light on the system as well. This one so far, appears to be a really strong contender.. Someone want to get in the hub for a go for all of us?
It really is impressive isn't it. The Sophos Android security App is fantastic too.When I installed SHP on family’s PC it took like 10 minutes to update its Virus database which mean the product is not fully cloud and that’s a good news for me. No slowdowns and no infections so far even though the PC is used by “ignorant little click-everywhere dudes”. I might install it on one of my PCs to see how it goes.
I’m thinking of installing it on my personal laptop soon.It really is impressive isn't it. The Sophos Android security App is fantastic too.

I do wonder how close Sophos are with UK intelligence agencies (GCHQ)
