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

Pros
"Sophos UTM is the simplest of these products to setup.""Good basic firewall functions with advanced firewall scanning.""Technical support is very responsive.""The initial setup is pretty easy.""We've found the technical support to be helpful.""It's a stable solution.""This is a very stable product.""It is easy to manage."

More Sophos UTM Pros »

"All features are useful. We are using premium features such as bandwidth sharing, failover, web filters, SSL controls, antivirus, and VPN. We use these features to the fullest. These features are available in the paid firewall license, not the free one.""The most valuable features are IPS, MAPI, NAT, and VPN.""Its detection, antivirus, and filtering features are the most valuable. The facility to connect by using the VPN connection is also a very valuable feature. It is very strong, secure, and reliable. We have implemented the Untangle solution in all hardware. It is also a user-friendly solution. It is easy to learn and easy to configure.""They have a command center that makes it easy to log into and see all of your appliances nationwide.""Easy to set up and easy to integrate."

Cons
"I think that additional metrics features are needed to be able to monitor other areas or to monitor as much as you can, at a fine-grain resolution.""There were a lot of features and functionality in Sophos SG UTM but nothing was state of the art in terms of technology. You did not get the latest functions. It was very monolithic as it was based on an old Linux PuTTY system.""Updates come out agonizingly slowly, a trickle.""Sophos should be more user-friendly, have more dashboards, and an easier implementation.""Monitoring and reporting are areas that need improvement.""The integration capabilities could be better.""The classification segregation of applications lacks sufficient definition.""The logs are not clear, which means that you need an additional piece of software in order to read them clearly."

More Sophos UTM Cons »

"They don't have any feature that allows you to drop the session.""We seek the availability of the hardware in our region. The hardware-based firewall from Untangle is currently not available in our region. It should have threat protection on a real-time basis. This feature, available in Check Point and Sandstorm kind of scenario, is currently missing in Untangle NG Firewall.""The common center facility that Untangle provides should be available on-premises. There are great corporations here in Mexico that like the Untangle solution, but they don't like the fact that the monitoring and access to the appliance are in the cloud. They request for the common center facility to be available and installed on-premises.""Web-filtering policies could be improved.""The pricing should be reduced because it is expensive."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It is necessary to pay for a licence to use the solution, but it is not very expensive.""The appliance should be purchased and there is a fee for the license.""The solution is very low cost compared to competitors. You have a good firewall, a lot of functions for less than the price of some omni firewall competitors.""Our licensing fees are paid on a monthly basis.""This product is free for home users. The more expensive products have better performance.""It is the cheapest product available. It's good if you have a low budget.""The prices can be better, they could make it a lot cheaper.""It's reasonably priced."

"It is not expensive. It is cheaper than Fortinet.""The pricing model is better than with SonicWall.""It is not expensive. The best part is that it is based on the pay-per-use kind of scenario. An increase or decrease in the number of people doesn't make any difference. We are really happy about using this particular scenario."
