What do you like best?

The user interface is not friendly enough. I hope Sophos can give more visibility for the logs.

What do you like best?
Sophos XG is easy to deploy, configure and manage. The features like web filter, Application filter, Email Protection, Server protection are great in their purpose.
What do you dislike?
Customer support needs to be improved as sometimes it takes lots of time to connect. Licencing cost should be reviewed for small organizations. Some features need the training to configure.

Configured remote VPN on Sophos XG firewall which helps me to connect the users from other locations. I can easily configure the web filter and application filter to filter unproductive traffic. Different types of reporting give an easy analysis of network traffic.

It is the best firewall with all the advanced features. Highly recommended for any organization

Sophos was a really tough product for us to use in an enterprise environment.

  • November 14, 2019
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
It was pretty easy to deploy with the basic settings, but configuring was a pain.
What do you dislike?
It didnt stop most things out of the box. There was all types of configuration necessary to catch it all
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
We were trying to cut down on malware and malicious software being installed. We really didnt have a clue until we turned Microsoft ATP on. All the alerts started coming through, and they were all missed by Sophos.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Consider another product. This was really bad for our company, especially with the SMB1 vulnerability.
