Easy to set up, offers central management, the support is good, and it handles endpoint security
What is our primary use case?
We are a solution provider and this is one of the security solutions that we implement for our clients. The primary use for Sophos XG is to secure the internet for an organization. It does a bit of antivirus scanning, application filtering, web filtering, and normal firewalling. Security, obviously. Some of our clients also have Sophos UAP and access points are also included in Sophos, which is the same with FortiGate.
Pros and Cons
"If you want to install antivirus and firewalling on endpoints, then Sophos is the best option."
"The SD-WAN capability is not as good as it is in FortiGate, and is something that should be improved."
What other advice do I have?
The suitability of this product depends on the use case. If somebody wants to have full endpoint protection then Sophos is the best choice. If they just want a normal UTM without endpoint software, then FortiGate is slightly better, but only slightly because of the SD-WAN capabilities. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
