Sophos UTM Previous Solutions

Joseph Mallozzi
Project Engineer
SonicWall used to be our primary choice of firewall. I am just an engineer and I do not have control over which products we use. We started using Sophos Antivirus, then they eventually sold us on firewalls, encryption, mobile control, and a lot more of their products. The synchronized security model is really what was sold flexible to the product. View full review »

No, we didn't. It was our first choice and it was definitely a good one. View full review »

Network Engineer II at a legal firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
We did originally try to use PFSense. The software was hard to use, and the level of technical expertise was not good. Ultimately, after several demos of both products, we decided that Astaro (at the time we purchased our original device) was the right vendor to work with. Since that time, Sophos purchased Astaro and it would appear that they kept a lot of the same people working on these devices because the transition was smooth, and the level of knowledge never faltered.

CEO And Founder at Advisor Consulting Group Corp
We used a commercial product, Untangle, with our own brand called Rhino Box. Untangle did not invest in the development of features as we expected, such as the adoption of IPSec VPNs (they had it but very limited), and IPv6. This was what made us do research for our SMB/Enterprise market offering. We tried out Sophos UTM (recently purchased as Astaro UTM) and it was really easy to deploy and came with Sophos Support, which is awesome. View full review »

I did take a look at other open source solutions, but found the Sophos UTM, being the best professional free for Home UTM solutions, full blown, and updated daily, to be the best solution. View full review »
