We currently use Sophos Endpoint and Malwarebytes Endpoint security simultaneously on all company computers. Recently the Sophos updates have started to throttle computers and I am starting to believe it is Malwarebytes scanning, or trying to scan, the update files.
I am wanting to put exclusions in Malwarebytes so that it doesn't look at the Sophos files. Does anyone have a complete list of what I all need to exclude? I already found one for MB that I entered into Sophos.
Hi Erik,Please keep in mind that running other AV solutions along with Sophos may trigger unexpected behaviors, as explained here:Information on installing Sophos products alongside a competitor's software
Here's a list of Sophos Windows Endpoint: Components and services
You may want to reach out to MWB's support team to find out what type of exclusions you may need as well. Regards,
In reply to Barb@Sophos:
Thank you. I will get these added and see if it fixes our issue!
We use both Sophos and MB because about a year ago we were hit by crippling virus that took our entire company down... Sophos didn't pick it up at all but MB did perfectly. They compliment each other very nicely.
In reply to Erik Zabokrtsky:
We didn't have an issue for awhile when we first switched over when running two Anti-Virus applications, but after some time Sophos wouldn't even install if it detected the other one.
Just be prepared in case this happens to you as well.
Hi Erik Zabokrtsky,
I understand your concern here, but three reasons would key reasons for not recommending two file based Antivirus.
