As previously communicated, from the beginning of June, no new customers are able to enroll into the XDR & EDR Data Lake Endpoint and Server early access programs (EAPs).  For customers who were already enrolled, they are no longer able to assign new devices into the EAPs.  On June 21st we removed the ability for EDR and MTR licensed customers enrolled in the EAP to query email or firewall data in the Sophos Data Lake and we also removed the ability for non EDR/MTR licensed customers to use the Live Discover functionality.

The XDR & EDR Data Lake Endpoint and Server Early Access programs was originally scheduled to close on Monday, the 2nd of August, but with there being no new functionality to test we will be moving that date forward to Wednesday, July 7th and at that point any enrolled devices will revert to their recommended software version.

How can I test out the new EDRv4 and XDR capabilities?

Existing Central customers can start an in-product trial by clicking the 'Free Trials' link in the bottom of the Left Hand navigation menu in Sophos Central:

  • Non EDR customers looking to try out EDR can start an Intercept X Advanced with EDR Endpoint and/or Server trial.
  • Customers licensed for EDR can test out XDR capabilities by starting an XDR trial.

New customers who start a Central trial will receive a license which gives 30-day access to the Sophos Data Lake and will be licensed to send all cross-product data into the Sophos Data Lake. If looking to start a new Central trial, click here
