Offers a high level of visibility of what's happening on your network or on your client machines

What is our primary use case?

I use Sophos XG as a content filtering, web filtering, and application filtering utility, as well as to integrate with the endpoint antivirus software. I have Sophos Endpoint Antivirus installed on the user machines as well, i.e. the Central Cloud Management version. That's our main use. Sophos XG has cybersecurity. It integrates with the antivirus software.

Pros and Cons

  • "Sophos XG has cybersecurity. It integrates with the antivirus software."
  • "The only issue that Sophos XG now needs to improve is the product's reporting capability."

What other advice do I have?

I recommend that everyone should have a proper understanding of new network requirements and then enjoy it. Sophos XG is definitely a good product. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would give Sophos XG an eight.

An easy to use product with a simple interface and good stability

What is our primary use case?

We use the solution as a firewall.

Pros and Cons

  • "The interface is very good."
  • "The pricing is not as good as it was some time ago. They've since skipped offering a lot of individual features."

What other advice do I have?

It's very easy to use the product. In comparison, Sophos has a bigger learning curve. I would rate the solution ten out of ten.
