Sophos UTM Pricing and License Cost

The Sophos UTM license is annual or you have a choice for a two or three-year term. The Sophos UTM licensing is based on if you have an appliance. There are several layers of subscription you can take: * Sophos UTM Full Guard includes everything but a few features. * Sophos UTM Full Guard Plus includes all the most used features, i.e Wifi, ITF, ITS, web publishing WAF, etc. There is a huge price list. The prices in the MENA area (the Middle East and North Africa) is completely different than North America. The products are completely different in the MENA area from the United States. Each region has its own scheme of pricing based on the VAT and the tax refund. The price might be different for the people who are in the United States and the UK. After you select the level of subscription, you pay once. View full review »

The biggest issue with Sophos is the pricing. It's definitely more expensive. We looked at Webroot, which is a big alternative, and Sophos was almost three times the price of Webroot. That's a pretty big difference. We actually went with both Webroot and Sophos. We went with Webroot for most of the client machines. We're only using Sophos for the servers and the really important client machines, like the ones the managers use. That way, we can split our cost up a little bit. View full review »

I recommend you get the three year licenses, since Sophos offers three years for the price of two. I would also recommend that you acquire any Sophos Licensing with Professional Services added, that way, you'll have the best experience possible. View full review »

Purchasing through the AWS Marketplace is pretty straightforward. Because were entirely on AWS and don't have anything anywhere else. It made the most sense for us as a one stop shop. The pricing is pretty reasonable. I don't think that it is overly expensive. View full review »

We originally purchased the solution through the AWS Marketplace. I started my proof of concept doing pay-as-you-go, then moved to a VAR for a 'Bring Your Own Licence' (BYOL) licensing model. The BYOL license still requires you to accept the terms of the AWS Marketplace to deploy. It is easy to purchase through the AWS Marketplace. In addition, if you have a budget for the AWS Marketplace, then your purchases will appear on your regular Amazon bill, which makes things even easier. View full review »

Purchasing it through the AWS Marketplace went smoothly. We did not have any issues and the pricing was decent. We decided to purchase through the AWS Marketplace because of the integration with the AWS infrastructure, firing it up and configuring it was very seamless. View full review »

The pricing for Sophos UTM is quite acceptable compared to other UTM vendors. If you would like to run an active-passive HA system, you only need to buy an additional hardware without subscription. At other vendors, you need subscription for both devices. In the case of a software/virtual appliance subscription, you pay by protecting user/IP addresses. You can do this to as much hardware resources as you like. View full review »

We procured this solution via the AWS Marketplace because of BYOL (bring your own licence). That was the driving force behind the choice. In addition, they had test and production environments in AWS already so it was easy to get a sign-off. View full review »

Sometimes more is less, meaning if you want more than three features, take the FullGuard licence. View full review »
