Sophos SUM allows us to manage over 50 devices from a central management console

What is our primary use case?

  • Network border protection for clients and internal company
  • It is used for small to medium-sized businesses and networks.

How has it helped my organization?

Sophos SG has provided us with the tools to protect our networks, detect malicious activity, and customize security to our clients' needs.

What is most valuable?

  • Sophos UTM Manager (SUM): It allows us to manage over 50 Sophos UTM devices from a central management console. 
  • Creating rules, exceptions, and managing most features from SUM, and pushing to all or a section of devices as needed.

What needs improvement?
