Quotes From Members Comparing Sophos Cyberoam UTM vs. Sophos UTM

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
It is a VPN that serves all your needs as an application firewall.Web and content filtering are valuable in preventing people from abusing the network and pushing up the bandwidth price.We have never had to restart a firewall. The firewalls have all worked perfectly fine.The best feature is the flexibility the product offers, in terms of remote access. What we had before was a decentralized mechanism in our organization, but after having this product we were able to get the remote locations into the same LAN. We were able to control the bandwidth and were able to take virtual access of those machines and give them the support, as and when required.Bandwidth Management and aggregation. It is valuable for combining two ISPs. Switching to a secondary/redundant ISP is thus seamless, in the event that the primary ISP goes down. The Bandwidth Management is also valuable for limiting heavy downloaders that may impact negatively on the experience of other users.The product has helped control bandwidth utilization, as well as enhanced connectivity and security to remote locations.User and network policies to be managed on a single screen with powerful filtering and search options.Good user interface.

It works well without any maintenance. So far, it has worked pretty well regardless of the traffic.It has made our organization more secure, because we are using a VPN. We are not accessing services directly. It allows us to segregate some of the traffic for individuals which may be more of a developer role rather than an operational role needing access to developer resources, but not necessarily production operational resources.It makes it a lot easier for us to maintain things. Prior to it, things were more difficult. This means less time on us. We can focus on other things. The recovery is more in man-hours for us than anything else.It helped to connect our satellite offices to the main Amazon infrastructure in a circular way.Sophos has a single pane of glass which allows me to manage all my VPCs from a single instance, managing all my firewall from one place.The most valuable feature is that it is easy to administer.I have no problem with the cost or licensing of this solution. This is a primary reason whay I wanted this solution. It does the same thing cheaper than other name brands.It helps us with protection, with concurrent use of the VPN.

Cons
Its scalability is not that great.Cyberoam configuration is done through the browser, which is one of the places that viruses spread.Once in a while, an unwanted email will slip in. You have to set your parameters to avoid that happening, but once in a while, an email has slipped past firewall. Once you update the firmware, you notice that it doesn't happen. If an email slips in, I get a little bit worried. I do get the report, but you just don't want that situation happening in the first place.I would like to see a better content management pack and also the website searching should be better.I have problems with the email filtering. Emails pass through without any filtering affecting them. When I get back to them and tell them this is the issue, they check everything and say it is not in their database signature and they have to update it. But you know, by that time, my user has already opened it.There is a lot or room for improvement, because it is still not a fourth or fifth generation firewall. It lacks security features.Needs a mail alert/notification when the device loses any of its connections, during ISP redundancy implementation.The following could be improved: Web Filtering using wildcards; clarity regarding the firewall rules; granular reporting features.

The product could be simplified and made more self-explanatory.The documentation during the AWS integration was a little fuzzy on getting it to work with how the whole public exposure versus private exposure, then routing some of the traffic.We had some problems with the configuration. They had provided a CloudFormation template, and we had to go several rounds to make it work.They could definitely improve on the support, especially in other countries.I would like them to move from the Classic Load Balancer to the Network Load Balancer. This would make it easier to do certain things with Amazon. They are able to do some enhancements with Network Load Balancer that they are unable to do with Classic Load Balancer.The pricing is an issue.The memory and processing were problematic. The interface could be better.During initial configuration, I encountered a few issues.

Pricing and Cost Advice
I have no comment about the pricing.Prices are very high.It is worth the value.It’s value for the money. It’s functionally competitive with higher priced alternative brands.The price is very competitive and the licensing is easy.It is more expensive than cheap routers, but it offers a lot of functionality, and that warrants the price.Licensing is a bit costly, mostly for features requiring subscription.It is very reasonably priced as compared to other solutions in the market.

Purchasing through the AWS Marketplace is pretty straightforward. Because were entirely on AWS and don't have anything anywhere else. It made the most sense for us as a one stop shop.The pricing is pretty reasonable. I don't think that it is overly expensive.Purchasing it through the AWS Marketplace went smoothly. We did not have any issues and the pricing was decent.We originally purchased the solution through the AWS Marketplace. I started my proof of concept doing pay-as-you-go, then moved to a VAR for a 'Bring Your Own Licence' (BYOL) licensing model. The BYOL license still requires you to accept the terms of the AWS Marketplace to deploy.The price is something that one will need to consider.I have no problem with the cost or licensing of this solution. This is a primary reason whay I wanted this solution. It does the same thing cheaper than other name brands.We purchased the appliance with five years onsite support and licenses.Pricing for the upgrade was very competitive as Sophos wanted to retain existing customers.
