Sophos UTm review

  • September 21, 2018
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Solid security, ease of setup, great looking GUI and customer support is helpful
What do you dislike?
The fact that port forwards have to be done with werid source ports.

Also don't like how network ports can't be bridged and Vlan'd .
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Security, endpoint protection. Very easy deployment and central is awesome
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Solid UTM but do your homework. Port forwarding has caveats like source port has to be 1:63365 or something like that.

Very nice entry level / SMB firewall appliance

  • September 17, 2018
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
The ease of setup and the feature provided with this little appliance is absolutely amazing. I was quite impressed by the feature for price. I like the fact that it runs Linux in the background.
What do you dislike?
Support is not reachable easily and eventually, you get somebody over the phone.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
The lack of security in a SMB (a customer of mine) who wanted to have more visibility and enforce some security rules inside the teams
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Sophos UTM is a great entry level firewall who provided access to enterprise features/protections and the entry ticket is low. I really think it worth the investment for SMBs or branch offices.

No problems with this software. It does its job, and there have been no outstanding complaints in my department (IT) on campus or any other.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Able to ensure security over all computers/laptops at the university I am employed with (Southwestern University). There are no issues with security at this institution, (meaning no viruses or scam-like entities have been encountered) because of our use of Sophos UTM.

What do you like best?
Esta herramienta nos ofrece una protección en tiempo real desde el firewall. Yo lo utilizo en la red del colegio y para los alumnos es la mejor opcion. La plataforma de control es muy intuitiva y la verdad que muy comoda.
What do you dislike?
Como contra tengo que decir que algunos alumnos encuentran la forma de saltar el firewall de sophos con extensiones de APN, esto me resulta un poco pesado porque tengo que entrar cada vez a la plataforma para bloquear estas extensiones descubiertas por los alumnos.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Great protection for Windows machines

  • July 12, 2018
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Easy to roll out from a Sophos firewall to windows computers on our network. Being able to make sure everything is up to date and implemented from the firewall is great.
What do you dislike?
We recently started moving all of our end user computers to Apple. Sophos does not have a proper distribution of this software for Macs that can be controlled from the firewall. It ends up being a free, standard antivirus product
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Enduser protection and not having to be concerned about our end user devices.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you are using a sophos firewall, but you are a apple product heavy enviroment, it will not have the full features it would with windows.
