Sophos UTM Review

Web Server Protection is an elegant solution and can even hide the server's base system

How has it helped my organization?

We use to use a sort of "security as a service," and I had all kinds of issues getting visibility into the system to see if there were issues with my network. That is no longer a problem, I can now see every packet that passes in and out of my network.

What is most valuable?

To me it is the Web Server Protection, it is not an easy task to protect your web servers from the big bad internet. This solution does it elegantly and, if configured correctly, even hides the server's base system from prying eyes.

What needs improvement?

The UI can be cumbersome and, sometimes, features are not where you think they should be.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No stability issues at all.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Our current use of the product doesn't need any scaling out.

How are customer service and technical support?

Their support is prompt and will find the issue for you.

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

We were using an offsite solution that was at least 20 times the cost over a year.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Go to a vendor and let them assess your needs so you can get a right-sized device.

What other advice do I have?

I use it in a self-hosted implementation.
