Anyone running Sophos antivirus/webfiltering solution on client machines?

It appears that the sophos client on the windows machines uses its service account username to browse on behalf of the user. So essentially being a proxy for the user, the issue is from the monitoring aspect of the palo alto, I can't see the true user-id that is browsing. Anyone run into this or something similar? Any fixes on the palo alto side ?

In this case you have to add Sophos user into exclude list.
