What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is as the main company firewall.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is the flexibility of it, it's pretty versatile.

Also, the firewall aspect in terms of setting up rules. They worked pretty well.

What needs improvement?

The UI needs improvement because it can be a little weird at times.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used Sophos XG in the last twelve months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This solution is stable. We haven't had any real issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I don't know if this solution is scalable. We haven't explored this area yet.

As we grow, we plan to increase usage.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is good.

How was the initial setup?

Initially, the setup was a bit complex.

It was complex because we were coming off of a different setup. It was just getting used to the software, but it's not too bad.

We require one and a half staff members for the deployment and the maintenance. They seem to do a pretty good job of updating it and keeping it current.

What about the implementation team?

We implemented ourselves. We did not use a vendor or integrator.

What was our ROI?

We're military contractors, and the cybersecurity compliance aspect of it has been the most helpful.

We know how the networks operate from our end, even though we are relatively green. We don't what we are comparing it to.

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

We prepaid in advance to get the max discount.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate Sophos XG an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
