Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I'm more inclined towards the conventional firewall. So for me, I'm more geared towards the standard firewall type functionalities as well as the web application firewall because that seems to work fine."
"The most valuable feature is the IPSec forwarding."
"Having a firewall solution with a data quota is very important when the bandwidth is limited, which really distinguishes it from other products."
"The product, itself, doesn't seem to have any bugs or glitches."
"The interface is user-friendly."
"It has been working fine. You just turn it on, and it works."
"The user interface is well laid out and understandable."
"The initial setup was straightforward."
"We have found that the simplicity of the XG 210 is its most valuable feature."
"Sophos XG has cybersecurity. It integrates with the antivirus software."
"It gives me a very good, stable connection in all tunnels."
"The SL VPNs are the most valuable feature. I have a lot of systems out of the head office that need to connect to the local networks, and they all connect wirelessly via the Sophos VPN client."
"What I like about his program, is that it is easy to use and easy to manage."
"The filtering is very easy to do. You can segment and create profiles for usage very easily."
"The solution seems pretty stable. We've had no issues so far."
"I like the fact that it can self remove malware and do updates on the cloud via Sophos Central."
"I would say there's room for improvement in terms of the GUI. Because it is better than some of the other standard firewalls. They have the drag and drop features."
"The VPN needs to be improved."
"When it comes to web filtering and application filtering, it does not contain enough signatures to determine all of the sites that need to be blocked."
"Cyberoam UTM needs to have more certifications with third-parties, such as NSS Labs."
"We have had some issues with technical support, which is an area that needs improvement."
"It should have a better VPN client. We decided to find something different than Cyberoam because of the VPN client software. It would be nice to have a user interface not only in English but also in different languages."
"Sometimes, users are timed out intermittently."
"Technical support could be faster."
"When I call, I have to wait at least one to two hours to reach them."
"The only issue that Sophos XG now needs to improve is the product's reporting capability."
"I would like to have remote access to clients using a static IP for a certain period of time."
"The initial set up process can be a little tricky, especially when you are registering with Sophos using your registration number. Setup is not necessarily complex, but it's not trouble-free. You do have connectivity issues at the initial setup with registering the device on the Sophos platform to access the advanced features. It doesn't always go through the first time around. That may be an issue with the quality of our automation. I'm not sure exactly what it is."
"The program is rather expensive."
"The UTM itself needs improvement. When you're navigating it seems like it takes forever to load anything. The hardware is okay. It's just the software that could be more responsive."
"It's easy to use, but it's hard to configure exact settings. They need to make it easier to access advanced features."
"On reports, they sometimes give a summary, but it lists different users as unknown. There are times that I really want to know which user or which IP is causing a problem."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"This is a cost-effective solution compared to other vendors, such as Cisco."
"There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees."
"It is not cheap."
"We paid for a two-year FullGuard license that includes support."
"It's not an expensive product."
"I am not happy with the pricing, it could be better."
"For licensing the XG 210, we paid approximately $3000 for three years. There are no additional fees on top of this."
"It's a suitable price and license."
"We are paying about $1,500 yearly for the Enterprise Plus. As far as I know, there aren't costs above this standard fee."
"The Sophos pricing, in general, is better than SonicWall, Fortinet, WatchGuard, or anybody else."
"We paid for our licensing for three years, upfront, and there are no costs in addition to the standard fees."
"The price is cheaper than that of some competing vendors."
"The pricing is flexible. Sophos looks at a country's economy and offers flexible pricing. This is how they have managed to penetrate the market."
"It's approximately $6,000 for each device."
