Sophos Cyberoam UTM Review

Virtual Cyberoam allows the customer granular controls at their level and then allows us overriding controls at a parental level.


Valuable Features:

Cyberoam is our low-end product that we use for smaller customers or ones where application security is not a priority. Cyberoam has good AD integration for user configuration and web controls which we like a lot and it’s easy to manage and maintain.  We mostly use the virtual models in VMware.

Improvements to My Organization:

The virtual cyberoam has allowed us to segment our cloud customers via a virtual firewall instance per customer as a second level of security behind our primary systems firewalls.  This allows the customer granular controls at their level and then allows us overriding controls at a parental level.  Makes for great security.

Room for Improvement:

You can now load the Sophos software onto a Cyberoam box to use the new feature set, although it would be nice if it came with it.

Sophos bought Cyberoam a short while ago and they have amalgamated the Sophos technologies with the existing Sophos ones and some from astaro which they previously bought..  So there is now a Sophos firmware which you can install onto the Cyberoam instead of the Cyberoam one. Because it’s Linux based it’s very portable.


Other Solutions Considered:

Great product for the price.

Other Advice:

Cyberoam was bought by Sophos and the new Sophos firewalls take the next step adding more functionality and capability in the box. Cyberoam was bought by Sophos and the new Sophos firewalls take the next step adding more functionality and capability in the box.  

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: We are a Gold Partner with Cyberoam.
