Good protection, stable, scalable, and the support is helpful

Pros and Cons

  • "It's the best solution on the market."
  • "It's a good product, but some are not happy with the boot BCN, and the point-to-point VPN requires the best protection."

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution to protect our devices in a data center environment.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is the protection. It offers many different areas of protection such as trade and virus protection.

It's the best solution on the market.

What needs improvement?

It's a good product, but some are not happy with the boot BCN, and the point-to-point VPN requires the best protection. Better internet protection is required.

For how long have I used the solution?

We are currently using Sophos XG 210.21 but it expires in August, so we are looking at the Next-Generation Firewall.

We are using the latest version of SafeGuard.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a stable solution. We have no issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We can expand the product when we have the requirements to do so. For now, we have not explored this area.

We have 150 users in various roles using this solution in our organization.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is great. They are very good, and helpful.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was complex.

It took two months to deploy.

What about the implementation team?

Initially, we started to implement this solution but required some help from support.

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

Licensing is on a yearly basis and the pricing could be better.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to others because it's a very good product.

We are satisfied with SafeGuard and I would rate it a ten out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Sophos SafeGuard is both scalable and stable.
