Enterprise administrators can manage the sub-estates using Sophos Central Enterprise. Sophos Central Enterprise includes several predefined administration roles that divide security administration by responsibility level. Each enterprise administrator has the SuperAdmin role for each of the sub-estates.

Each sub-estate has its own Sophos Central Admin account with its own administrators.

You can:

  • View and manage your enterprise sub-estates and their licenses.
  • View and manage your enterprise administrators.
