Sophos Cyberoam UTM Other Advice

Assistant Manager IT at a insurance company with 11-50 employees
See what your market is offering. Here in Zambia, Cyberoam has a lot of support. Take your time and make sure that when you're making a decision, your requirements are met. Cyberoam met our requirements. I was only looking at web filtering and I got a whole lot more than that. Also, your after-sales support is crucial. Train yourself, because if you have the knowledge of a product, it's easy for you to set it up and use it to its fullest potential. I rate this solution a nine out of ten. It has met many of my requirements even without subscription, just the base model. It's easy to use, easy to install, easy to implement. There isn't too much headache or cabling, you don't have to replace a whole, huge network. You're just replacing one thing and it can be implemented without an issue. View full review »

I am rating it a 10 out of 10 because it has never failed us. Talk to people who are actually using it. Actual experience always differs from the product advertisement. Most important criteria when selecting a vendor: * Market share * Ease of use * Best practices * Comments of different users from different companies of the product. Before I purchase anything, I go onto web and do thorough research about: * What the product can offer. * What are the challenges. * What are the properties of that product that makes our IT people's lives easier. * What happens if something goes wrong. * How fast I can get support. * What are its internet support options? Sometimes, if a product is used widely, you do not even have to call anyone in support. The answers are all over the Internet. For example, if you are using a Microsoft product, you don't even have to call Microsoft, because the Internet is growing with Microsoft articles about how to do and what to do when there are issues. If you are using a very limited operating system, like a Mac operating system, Mac OS. It's not very common, so you need to get professional help. View full review »

For a small business, it's okay. It's easy to set up and it's also cheap. I rate it eight out of 10. I'm not giving a 10 because many times, 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. I don't know why they are not updating. Every time, it seems they are waiting for me to inform them that this is the signature issue or this is the signature that came in through that filter. View full review »

The first drawback is that Sophos has acquired Cyberoam. So, if I was a new customer who wanted to choose between Cyberoam and Sophos, I would definitely go for Cyberoam because it has additional features in it. I don't understand the strategy behind it, because the same owner has two different products under one umbrella. It's a bit confusing. Six out of ten is the best I can rate Cyberoam at this moment. To get it to a 10, it's up to the manufacturer. They need to really upgrade their firmware to match up with the fourth or fifth generation firewalls that other vendors have to offer. My advice would be that the manufacturer needs to focus on security. View full review »

I would warmly recommend it. However, the reason I don't give it a 10 out of 10 is because we sometimes find the customer service or the support lacking. View full review »
