Intercept X (with EDR) Licencing question

Hello,

 

i cant find this information:

is it possible to mix intercept X advanced with intercept X advanced with edr Licences?

for example: 5 clients uses intercept x advanced and 10 clients uses intercept x advanced with edr

 

Thanks!

  • Hi Peter, 

    Just to confirm, because Intercept X Advanced EDR is a platform wide change, with it's features on the Central Endpoint/Server Protection dashboards, therefore the licenses can not be mixed.

    Please let us know if you have any further questions. 

     

  • As mentioned already, you can't mix 2 different endpoint / Intercept license types in the same account typically.  However there is a workaround; you can enable Enterprise Management in Central and create 2 different Sub-Estates, one licensed one way, and one another; of course there is the limitation that all the clients are not immediately manageable in the same GUI at the same time, but you can open the 2 Sub-Estates up and manage them separately.  Your Sophos Reseller should be able to help with this.

    thanks for clarify this, are there any plans that licenses can be mixed in the future? or can we fill an feature request for this?

    Thanks

    I'm sure that you can put a feature request in for it -- you can do that here:  www.sophos.com/.../feature-requests.aspx

    I don't know that is something they could ever or would be willing to implement -- would be a management nightmare -- admins having to select which PCs get what features, more possibilities of license over usage, etc.  I have a customer now that is in the same boat now because of various reasons, and our answer is to implement sub-estates for them.
