The best firewall solution for any business small to large!

  • December 12, 2017
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
How through it is. It protects EVERY aspect of our data coming in and going out. The reporting and alerts are fantastic in assisting in tracking down issues within the network.
What do you dislike?
Sometimes it can be a little overwhelming when setting up access to certain rules, ports, sites, etc. But Sophos support is spot on and always there to help.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Keeps all of our data safe, keeps our users (rather they be guests or employees) safe, we don't have to worry about data breaches. Peace of mind.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you are worried about network security, look no further.

Greatest Firewall/UTM Product I Have Ever Used

  • March 29, 2017
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Simplicity. Interface is superb and the ability to quickly configure advanced routing, static routes, DNS, DHCP relays using object-based configurations just makes the unit so easy to use. I don't have time to work through Cisco router CLI, this Sophos UTM does the job of a router and more with the time to configured about 1/3 of the time required for other vendors. The logs are extremely clear to read through and identify issues if reported by end users. And let me not forget that the Up2Date firmware process is so easy, when you have to do firmware updates on other appliance types you immediately miss the convenience.
What do you dislike?
POP3 Scanning requires Accounts, although it does scan POP3 messages, it is unclear how to configure it properly from the beginning. A bit too much research required to get POP3 scanning running smoothly
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Improved Performance for End-Users across the board. Simplified Security policies by Network, User, User Group, Time-Based Policy, Granular Categorisation and recategorisation.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you want to be able to deploy and managed reliable and secure appliance, the Sophos UTM running UTM9.x is the right choice. The ability to centrally manage and monitor all appliances from a Sophos UTM manager with no addiitonal licensing is invaluable. The TotalProtect(FullGuard) license/subscription includes warranty for the hardware, and the High Availability is extremely effective and easy to support.

Solid, Feature Rich, Reliable product!

  • August 10, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
The user interface is simple, the controls logical... these things are just bullet proof!
What do you dislike?
The next generation (XG firewalls) really mangle the UI, making it much less user friendly... Sticking with UTM for now!
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
UTM protects my business network and keeps me informed of its health and status. it blocks serious threats in real time!
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Stick with UTM over the XG for now...

Sophos UTM SG125

  • July 08, 2015
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
The ease of setup and creating firewall rules and policy. Being able to manage everything from one unit depending on what licensing you get (AV, Web filter, Spam filter, Access Points). Intuitive and simple interface.
What do you dislike?
Pricing can be a bit high if you get all of the services.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Overall Protection of the network inside and outside. Simplifying many processes by only having one vendor / one solution for multiple serivices
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you want a simple, powerful solution that can handle all your needs Sophos is the way to go. They also have encryption services which are separate from the UTM, but another great service if you need that type of proection.
