It's provided us with unified threat management as well as comprehensive lists of reports, although we can't currently run 2.4 Ghz and 5 Ghz bands simultaneously.

Improvements to My Organization

The product has provided us with unified threat management as well as comprehensive list of reports.

Room for Improvement

Their new product range which is the new SG Series UTMs, especially the wireless versions, should at least include two radios for 2.4 Ghz and 5 Ghz bands. Currently we can only run one or the other, but not both.

Use of Solution

I've used it for around 18 months.

Deployment Issues

No at this stage.

Stability Issues

Only thing we have noticed as of late was that their firmware updates break something else that was working in a previous version. Only noticing this on some customers though not all customers.

Customer Service and Technical Support

They're great.

Previous Solutions

I’ve used other products like NetboxBlue, SonicWALL in my previous roles. We chose the Sophos UTM because of pricing, rich feature set and the fact that it can be either a Virtual App or Hardware Appliance.

Initial Setup

The initial setup was very straightforward. It was done through a wizard and there not much needed doing while setting up the UTM.

Implementation Team

We are a reseller so we use the same product that we sell to our customers. That’s how much we love the product.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: We're a Sophos Gold Partner.
