The most valuable feature is the price. I've been requesting prices all over these years between different solutions like Fortinet, Palo Alto, and Check Point and Sophos has been the cheapest and the best of all of them that I have tried. I have been working with Fortinet, it's a fact that the price is surprisingly better.

It allows me to easily connect with more than forty-five remote sites and more than fifty remote users between IPsec and SSL VPN, applying the web filter and application filter to ensure a secure connection.

The logs are not clear, which means that you need an additional piece of software in order to read them clearly.

There needs to be some improvement in the IPsec VPN. There is implementation only support. I have version one. I'd be most interested in having IP version two from the protocol.

I think that additional metrics features are needed to be able to monitor other areas or to monitor as much as you can, at a fine-grain resolution.

It would be nice if it had basic features, such as DLP (Data Loss Prevention).

Sophos should improve its ability to check something like bandwidth consumption for users or something more real-time.

It's stable, but the reaction time of the GUI is terrible.
