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.

Sophos Cyberoam UTM Cons

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.

On-box sandstorm should be available. As of now, it is from their cloud.

Needs a mail alert/notification when the device loses any of its connections, during ISP redundancy implementation.

Smaller CR15 units don’t have a hard disc or built in IView software. These units could do with that feature.
