Sophos XG Review

A good tool that offers stable and reliable protection


What is our primary use case?

This firewall is being used to protect our site.

What is most valuable?

It's a good security tool and it aligns with the rest of our security stack.

What needs improvement?

The VPN is in need of improvement. For us, it is hard to set up and it not working properly.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using the Sophos XG at one of our sites for about a year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This product is part of our infrastructure and we use it every day. The internet stays up with no outages, so I think that Sophos XG is a stable product.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have not had the need to scale to this point. Our entire organization is protected by it.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not been in contact with technical support.

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

Prior to this solution, we were using Meraki. My company has a better partner channel with Sophos, which is why we switched.

What about the implementation team?

Our in-house technical team deployed this firewall.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is looking into implementing this product is to trust your techs.

This is a good product, although there is always room for improvement.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
