What is most valuable?

For me, the web and content filtering are valuable because that, unfortunately, is where the abuse happens a lot. People are abusing the network and pushing up the bandwidth price.

How has it helped my organization?

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

Prices are very high.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

What do you think of Sophos Cyberoam UTM?

What is our primary use case?

We are using this solution to act as basic firewall protection.

What is most valuable?

It's a VPN, and the single box solution serves all your needs like an application firewall. In addition, you can set the proxy server.

What needs improvement?

I think that it would be helpful to have advanced application layer security. It's time for Cyberoam to upgrade themselves and add new relevant add ons to their product.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Compared to other firewalls, it is similar to the same generation of products. It isn't great yet, but it will be.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is not that great. I think that the Sophos XG product is more scalable than the Sophos Cyberoam. …
