Sophos UTM Review

It meets our compliance needs for antivirus, but the printed provisioning needs improvement.

What is our primary use case?

We use it for antivirus.

How has it helped my organization?

It meets our compliance needs in an elastic computer environment.

What is most valuable?

It meets our compliance needs for antivirus.

What needs improvement?

The printed provisioning is the primary thing that needs improvement.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is a little too CPU resource intensive, so we would like to see improvements there.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We are running about a couple hundred EC2 instances. Overall, the AWS Marketplace product should be a better fit, but it is a little pricier.

How is customer service and technical support?

When we need technical support, we just engage the vendor, then figure out what our requirements are from there.

How was the initial setup?

The integration and configuration of this product on our AWS environment is a little clunky right now.

The product is a standalone in terms of integration.

What other advice do I have?

Going forward, we need to look at the provisioning pieces and the resource utilization.

The AWS version is easier to provision than the on-premise version.
