What is most valuable?

It's been pretty reliable. There's been a few times when it hasn't just taken care of problems. The automation is very convenient. There's Sophos Central where the customer has a single pane of glass… more »

How has it helped my organization?

The fewer panes of glass you've got to go to to try to investigate an event, the better off you are. If there's some automation that goes on within the fabric, or whatever you want to call it, this… more »

What needs improvement?

The problem is that if you have a lot of different components going on, each managed under a different umbrella, then you're going to be spending a lot of time hopping back and forth between the… more »

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

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We are currently looking for a new solution because I am not satisfied with the product or the effort of the vendor to meet the needs of users. I have gone through the trouble of making a table for competition analysis between various vendors to see how they compare and that includes several vendors… more »

What other advice do I have?

I have a lot of baggage with this product because of problems I have with the customers, the implementation, the configuration, the settings — it is very, very troublesome.
