Simplify Sophos Antivirus Endpoint process
Up to now the Endpoint protection of Sophos requires many steps to be uninstalled.
For IT managers it's time consuming having to:
- stop the service auto update
- check the list
- uninstall program by programm all Sophos products installed by the EndPoint in order
As an alternative solution the Sophos Support answered us to implement a script that does all the steps by going to the Windows Registry, extract each program uninstall key and... ok, it's more complicated than the standard procedure.
I think in 2016 there should be a way for programs to be useful, usable and less time consuming.
Therefore I suggest that Sophos implements a simpler uninstall procedure (which occurs often, because many times we had the new client not properly installed) that simply asks you the Tamper Protection password (if needed) and then uninstalls the whole Sophos EndPoint in all its components.
This could be done via a single voice in the "Uninstall programs" menu or via some utility.
Should be available in calendar Q2 for Cloud endpoints and SEC managed in Q3. There will be a single uninstall option in add/remove programs.

Taking this one step further: Could we please have the ability to trigger the uninstall from Sophos Central?

Thanks Darren for the prompt response.
Looking forward to see it implemented.
Have a nice day
