Sophos Firewalls Rock

  • July 31, 2018
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
The Sophos firewalls are are full of features to protect the corporate network. Everything from IPS, to Reverse Proxy Services, to SSL VPN, and more. You can even do deep packet and application aware scanning and control.
What do you dislike?
When purchasing, there is a kind of black magic to choosing the right hardware level. The firewall must be sized just just depending on how much bandwidth you have and how many services you want to turn on.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Full integrated security management for the corporate network. The firewall will integrate with the Sophos antivirus and antiransomware software give you a wholistic approach to network security.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Dont skimp when sizing the hardware. The more you spend today, the better the solution will fit for the duration of its life.

Sophos UTM

  • July 31, 2018
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
XG units are easy to manage thanks to their cloud console and have very powerful features. The "security heartbeat" that syncs endpoint antivirus/antimalware/anticrypto with the firewall is a no brainer. Combined with the ability to manage FDE and see which users pose the highest risk based on behavior has made the entire stack invaluable to our clients.
What do you dislike?
SG units are solid but take too many steps to create and apply new policies. Some of the documentation is not entirely clear at first, but they seem to be improving it. Support can be hit or miss, depends on who picks up the phone. We've never had a problem not fixed before we ended the conversation, but sometimes the call went longer than it should have.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
The ability to manage all of our clients in one dashboard has greatly streamlined our processes, saving us time and leading to faster service times.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
XG units are the way to go. We always recommend one model up from what the current client needs are to allow for growth and new features.

What do you like best?
It complies widely what it promises, it provides a robust, efficient and stable security solution and at a very competitive price, it also gives freedom to security management, allowing this time for other activities.
What do you dislike?
For being a solution designed for small and medium enterprises, for use in large corporations only apply in very specific cases, is something I'm sure will change in the not too distant future

Creation of secure channels, providing rights to users and management of the Wi-Fi network, reinforcing the range of remote security are some of the solutions that we carry out with Sophos today.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
For security platforms you must have a work plan, if you are looking for an efficient solution and at a comptitive price you should check this option well
