It does not take much effort or thinking to understand how it works.​The product is extremely intuitive.​Configuration could not be made any easier.With over 150 firewalls in our portal, management and monitoring have never been easier.It is not an easy task to protect your web servers from the big bad internet. The Web Server Protection in this solution does it elegantly and, if configured correctly, even hides the server's base system from prying eyes.It allows our developers to be able to securely log into servers to deploy and manage software.It has allowed us to design a bespoke cloud space for our clients, while still having an excellent level of protection.

Cons
It would be good if Junos had "unique commands" between all hierarchical levels, discarding the use of the "Run" command.

​This product could use some improvement with web filtering. It takes a lot of time and effort to set up and maintain.​Finding information about Sophos’ sizing guidelines can actually be difficult. Also, Sophos does not make it clear what they mean by “users” when you are sizing a firewall, which then leads to undersized implementations.​​I am going to flat out say technical support is terrible. Being a Platinum level customer, I am not happy with the support.​Stay away from the wireless models, since you cannot put them in HA. They start to give you some weird issues once you start getting into multiple SSIDs and networks.The UI can be cumbersome and, sometimes, features are not where you think they should be.There is absolutely no support when using AWS. If you buy the on-premise Sophos solution, you get support.It is a pretty straightforward setup, but it should be some sort of documentation that takes you step-by-step to help set it up for your VPC.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Pricing is very good, not expensive.

Sophos offers free training when selling their products from within the partner portal.​I would recommend to follow Sophos’ sizing guidelines for choosing which license and model to use. Sophos has their own way of going about this and supplies partners with all the information required. If you follow their documentation and guidelines, there should be zero questions about licensing and sizing.Go to a vendor and let them assess your needs so you can get a right-sized device.Unless you are in the United States, or you have to use Sophos, you can't contact Sophos directly. You have to use a third-party ​company, and they all have different ways of how they explain their licensing.
