Sophos UTM Review

Great security and logging.

What is most valuable?

It really needs to update IPSec to enable IKEv2.

For how long have I used the solution?

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?


What do I think about the stability of the solution?


What do I think about the scalability of the solution?


How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

Customer service is great and responds really fast.

Technical Support:

Technical support might be a bit better and there are not enough easily accessible guides.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Previously used the OpenSource pfSense which works great, but Sophos adds the little extra that is needed in security.

How was the initial setup?


What about the implementation team?


Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I evaluated pfSense, and still go with pfSense where IPSec to AzurePack services are needed because Sophos does not support IKEv2.

What other advice do I have?

At first I did not like Sophos UTM but after second setup and config I liked it a lot and now recommend it to all my customers. It has great security features, and together with Sophos Endpoint Protection it works perfectly.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
