With Sophos, we have not had any incidents this year. The security provided has been good. It has proven to be okay for our needs.

Sophos is a unified solution. We have anti-virus protection, firewall rules, knotting, and DACC all in one box.

The most valuable features of this solution are the firewall application and application control.

It is a very good product. The threat monitoring process is the most valuable feature.

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.

I would recommend UTM over XG because it's easier to manage.

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.

Configuration troubleshooting is eased by the use of the color-coded, live firewall log.

Sophos UTM has improved the porting section. It has improved security by seeing the gaps. For example, when you discover that an entry has been using a certain application, with Sophos UTM acting as a Layer 7 firewall, you can block the application, not the port.

The features that I've known to be most valuable are both the web security features as well as the web firewall capabilities. As a partner of Sophos firewall, we have some clients and they are using Sophos firewall UTM and we are using it as well.

UTM 9 brings along IPSec as well as iPhone and iPad support. This seems small but it’s useful.

The isolation of infected machines is a big feature. Also, the ability to detect external sources that change files on a file server is really big.

The most valuable feature is the IPS. It also protects us from malware.

It has helped by identifying threats within the company. If there are computers or servers that are compromised, then we are able to identify them right away in the system.

It works well without any maintenance. So far, it has worked pretty well regardless of the traffic.

It has made our organization more secure, because we are using a VPN. We are not accessing services directly. It allows us to segregate some of the traffic for individuals which may be more of a developer role rather than an operational role needing access to developer resources, but not necessarily production operational resources.

I have no problem with the cost or licensing of this solution. This is a primary reason whay I wanted this solution. It does the same thing cheaper than other name brands.
