Sophos UTM Review

Sandstorm protects against crypto viruses in real-time

How has it helped my organization?

We replace customers' old and expensive devices such as firewalls, anti-spam, etc. with Sophos, as it has all these features. You don't need four boxes if you can have all these features in one box.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are

  • Web Protection - Protects you against problems originating from the internet.
  • Advanced protection (Sophos Sandstorm) - Protects against crypto viruses in real-time.
  • Email Protection - Really strong anti-spam.
  • REDs (Remote Ethernet Device)  - Connects you from a remote workplace to your source network.

What needs improvement?

There is still room for improvement in wireless protection. I don't mean their WiFi device is bad, but there are still things to improve on, such as WiFi roaming.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No, everything works perfectly.

How is customer service and technical support?

They have consultants who can help you quickly.

How was the initial setup?

 You can use the wizard which will guide you through all the initial settings.

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

Sometimes more is less, meaning if you want more than three features, take the FullGuard licence.

What other advice do I have?

We do not use this on AWS.

Before implementing the SG appliance, completely prepare the rules for your network; know what and where you want to implement.

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