We have around 20 clients using the solution, but have migrated 10 of them to Sophos. We recommend the solution to others. I rate Sophos Cyberoam UTM as a ten out of ten.

Our organization has multiple branches and, overall, approximately 200 users are utilizing Sophos Cyberoam UTM devices. I would rate Sophos Cyberoam UTM as a six out of ten.

I would recommend this solution. It is a good solution for an entry-level firewall. It is not suitable for large data center networks. I would rate Sophos Cyberoam UTM a nine out of ten.

We stopped using the solution because we needed more training and the documentation needed improvements. I would recommend this solution to others. I rate Sophos Cyberoam UTM a seven out of ten.

We're typically using the latest version of the solution. We update our policies every three years and continue to update them. The product is obsolete and we have moved over to Sophos. Generally, I would tend to recommend Sophos XE to users. Overall, I would rate the solution at a seven out of ten.

We are a customer and end-user. We are using various versions, including 100iNG, 50iNG, and 25iNG. I'd rate the solution at an eight out of ten. There's always room for improvement, although mostly we have been happy with it.

Cyberoam is going to end this year. They already have announced last year if you are an enterprise and have the support it will end. What I have learned from using this solution is when choosing another product in the future I will do more technical feature comparisons. Having done the comparisons I most likely would not have been having some of the issues I was having because I would have gone with another solution. I rate Sophos Cyberoam UTM a seven out of ten.

Our experience with this product so far has been wonderful. Everything about it is fine and I would recommend it to everyone. That said, there is always improvement that one can make at all times. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

We are in the process of changing the firewall in our company. We have been using Sophos Cyberoam UTM for ten years, and now the device is quite old. It has been working fine, and we are looking for new equipment only because of the age of this device. We have requirements for features like filtering, VPN connections, and we are trying to find the best solution for our requirements at a reasonable price. I would rate Sophos Cyberoam UTM a five out of ten.

My advice is that if Cyberoam continues in the future then it is a product I recommend. However, my understanding is that the product will no longer be available next year. For people who want to migrate from Cyberoam, the best option that we have seen so far is from Fortinet. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

In summary, I don't think that Sophos Cyberoam UTM is a friendly product to work with, and I would recommend the solution by Fortinet instead. I would rate this solution a five out of ten.

When we transitioned from Cyberoam to Sophos Cyberoam UTM, we were able to back up the rules and then upload them into the new solutions. It was easy to do and within a few hours, it was set up. If your company does not have a network administrator then this is a good option because the training makes it very easy to use. For larger, enterprise-level organizations, people will look for different solutions. If I were rating this product only for the Sri Lankan market then I would score it an eight out of ten. However, the majority of other countries do not have the issue of bandwidth limitations, and without the quota being important, I cannot rate it as high. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.

I would just say keep it simple, don't make it too complex. Keep it simple and then from there scale it up. I would rate it an eight out of ten. To make it a higher score, Sophos should look at the virtual firewall feature because most of the current players like Juniper have the option for a virtual firewall. That way you can actually split up into multiple different firewalls or one physical firewall.

See what your market is offering. Here in Zambia, Cyberoam has a lot of support. Take your time and make sure that when you're making a decision, your requirements are met. Cyberoam met our requirements. I was only looking at web filtering and I got a whole lot more than that. Also, your after-sales support is crucial. Train yourself, because if you have the knowledge of a product, it's easy for you to set it up and use it to its fullest potential. I rate this solution a nine out of ten. It has met many of my requirements even without subscription, just the base model. It's easy to use, easy to install, easy to implement. There isn't too much headache or cabling, you don't have to replace a whole, huge network. You're just replacing one thing and it can be implemented without an issue.

I am rating it a 10 out of 10 because it has never failed us. Talk to people who are actually using it. Actual experience always differs from the product advertisement. Most important criteria when selecting a vendor: * Market share * Ease of use * Best practices * Comments of different users from different companies of the product. Before I purchase anything, I go onto web and do thorough research about: * What the product can offer. * What are the challenges. * What are the properties of that product that makes our IT people's lives easier. * What happens if something goes wrong. * How fast I can get support. * What are its internet support options? Sometimes, if a product is used widely, you do not even have to call anyone in support. The answers are all over the Internet. For example, if you are using a Microsoft product, you don't even have to call Microsoft, because the Internet is growing with Microsoft articles about how to do and what to do when there are issues. If you are using a very limited operating system, like a Mac operating system, Mac OS. It's not very common, so you need to get professional help.
