The SL VPNs are the most valuable feature. I have a lot of systems out of the head office that need to connect to the local networks, and they all connect wirelessly via the Sophos VPN client.

The initial set up process can be a little tricky, especially when you are registering with Sophos using your registration number. Setup is not necessarily complex, but it's not trouble-free. You do have connectivity issues at the initial setup with registering the device on the Sophos platform to access the advanced features. It doesn't always go through the first time around. That may be an issue with the quality of our automation. I'm not sure exactly what it is.

On reports, they sometimes give a summary, but it lists different users as unknown. There are times that I really want to know which user or which IP is causing a problem.

There is an area that is very specific to our setup, where working tools you cannot easily establish a VPN between two internal networks.

It would be helpful if they had a set of standard templates because it would assist in the beginning, when you are just getting started.

We feel that the GUI can be improved a bit because it has a lot of information and looks a bit outdated.
