Hey Yogesh Patil1,The 2022.2.x version of the Server agent moves the SATC functionality out of IPS and into the Core product.
We are due to release that to IT next week and start the Server release towards…
Is this feature still under EARLY ACCESS PROGRAM (BETA), it is full of bugs, as we have tried to install on one of our client production Windows server 2019 , it was a nightmare Sophos Server Protection was using 99% CPU, had to remove it...
Yup Yogesh Patil1 that's true it is still in early access programs. You can log a service request if you are having troubles with it. And support can help you investigate further to narrow down the situation.

I have tried to provide access to Sophos support it took me a month case to escalate to the Global Support team, they have tried to provide me support many times, i have also spent around 10+ hours with for the remote support to diagnose the issue but, not done.. finally i have to uninstall the Sophos server protection, as it was high on server resources.
Sophos as already discontinued the old SATC client, and the new solution is provided in full of bugs... what exactly does Sophos expect from the customers, to provide them with our production servers for their own research and developments?It is almost 1+ year Sophos has announced end of support or OLD SATC and new solution still in BETA... Looking forward to get some ETA announcement for the final and proper solution...
We are due to release that to IT next week and start the Server release towards the end of July.
