Sophos Endpoint Tracking / Privacy

With the whole work from home, recently our org has asked us to install Sophos Endpoint on our devices. I'm aware that any banned websites will trigger an alert to the admin, and not that worried about that. However, what kind of visibility does the company have to URLs visited, etc? As well, does it have the ability to track time in apps / pull files locally from the device? A bit concerned about privacy of off the clock browsing & personal files on the device. Thanks a lot!

    Thank you for reaching us, I agree with what mentioned, though Mostly what reflects on the Admins dashboard is the activity you've done only on your system. For your personal files. Sophos endpoint will scan those files and logs their details on your local device. For tracking time in the application mostly this will be recorded under your Event viewer, unless an investigation is required they can collect those logs. And for copying files from your local device, it all depends on your configuration. if they don't have local admin access to your system then there’s no way your administrator can access your device remotely or through Sophos endpoint to copy files.
