Sophos XG Review

Has good VPN features and capabilities

What is our primary use case?

We use it for monitoring our web access, providing authentication and for security purposes.

What is most valuable?

We get good usage out of the VPN features and its capability; it is a great feature.

What needs improvement?

In terms of improvement, one of the features we are having a hard time getting a hang of is MAC addressing, like when we assign IP addresses to a specific MAC address. That is something that can be improved. For the next release, I think, it should have better feature integration.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Sophos XG for seven years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is a stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is scalable. We use the product for around 70 to 100 users.

How are customer service and technical support?

The support that we used was great.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was pretty straightforward. The setup took around one to two weeks. 

What about the implementation team?

We did all of the deployment by ourselves and we use one person for maintenance.

What was our ROI?

I think, for the XG, I think the MAC addressing. We were having a very hard time assigning MAC addresses with specific IP.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We haven't chosen any other product, besides Sophos.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate Sophos XG an eight out of ten.
