Sophos Central Server: No mixed licenses with EDR
Sophos Central’s server protection has recently been enhanced with EDR capabilities. Sophos now offers you three licensing options to protect your servers:
- Sophos Central Server Protection
- Sophos Central Intercept X Advanced for Server
- Sophos Central Intercept X Advanced for Server with EDR
Concerning the licensing there is something important to consider with EDR: If you are licensing a server with EDR, you must also upgrade all other servers that have a Central license to EDR.
For example, it is not possible to license one server with “Central Server Protection” and another with “Intercept X Advanced for Server with EDR”. In this case, the Server Protection license must also be upgraded to EDR.
If you think about upgrading your servers with EDR, don’t forget to check the budget. 😅
Mixed licenses without EDR still allowed
As long as EDR is not used, Sophos will continue to allow “Server Protection Licenses” to be mixed with “Intercept X Advanced for Server Licenses”, according to our sources.
