Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"We consider the user level and control features of Sophos Cyberoam UTM to be the best.""The solution is easy to integrate.""The interface is user-friendly.""The main features I have found best are the load balancer and ease of use.""I'm more inclined towards the conventional firewall. So for me, I'm more geared towards the standard firewall type functionalities as well as the web application firewall because that seems to work fine.""The most valuable feature is the IPSec forwarding.""Technical support is excellent.""The solution is excellent for web and application filtering and remote access with the VPN."

You can configure and monitor everything from one unique dashboard.""There are many valuable features.""The most valuable feature of this solution is that the license offers everything.""This is a very stable solution.""The most valuable feature is the Intercept X. It is the advanced features that are used for malware detection, and antivirus.""So far, I'm happy that they have recently added a firewall role, so I feel a little more comfortable with the security. The threat management is good."

Cons
"When it comes to web filtering and application filtering, it does not contain enough signatures to determine all of the sites that need to be blocked.""The implementation policy needs improvment.""The policy is a bit too vague.""I would say there's room for improvement in terms of the GUI. Because it is better than some of the other standard firewalls. They have the drag and drop features.""We have had some issues with technical support, which is an area that needs improvement.""Technical support could be faster.""There needs to be more documentation that users can access to help them understand the solution or troubleshoot as necessary.""I had an issue when I was trying to stop a user from using too much bandwidth while I was using Azure, I was not able to stop them."

"The user interface could be better.""They can simplify its interface so that it is mostly drag-and-drop. There was an SQL injection attack on some Sophos devices. They just need to harden their devices a little bit so that they can't be hacked very easily.""The weakest point is the technical support because they are difficult to get into contact with.""Some of the firewall rules are complicated for us to understand, they should be simplified.""The UI needs improvement because it can be a little weird at times.""Sophos XG's web server protection and log viewer could improve. They should also introduce sandboxing.""The support service level agreement in regard to the amount of time needed to upgrade things is too low. It should be higher.""Sophos can definitely improve with the interoperability between solutions."

It's my understanding that it is not overly expensive. It may be somewhere around $2,000 for a license.""It is not cheap.""This is a cost-effective solution compared to other vendors, such as Cisco.""We paid for a two-year FullGuard license that includes support.""It's not an expensive product.""There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees."
