    The scenario that Avast is great would be for large companies, where it works through homeoffice. Avast would be a bad idea for the educational institution, that is, a place where it will be directed to an underage audience, but I believe that Avast is on its way to becoming a global use system, so in the future it can be used in scenarios.

    UTM works great if you want a solid, obvious firewall. There's not a lot of second-guessing as to what you are about to do with every change you make. If you incorporate their wireless access points and RED (remote ethernet device) for remote users or small offices, it's considerably much easier to set up than other comparable solutions. If you are looking to manage your firewalls via the cloud, you are out of luck.

    Pros

    Avast Software

    • ‘Designer’ of the site is great
    • Access places
    • The easiness to follow each demand

    Sophos

    • Firewall Protection. The protection is unmatched, setup it a little daunting, but once set up it pretty much runs itself.
    • Site-to-site VPN. Super easy to deploy so we are able to network all our sites together.
    • The DHCP server function is actually really nice, I prefer using it over the traditional way of using a DC for DHCP.

    Cons

    Avast Software

    • Should be able to leave in only 1 language
    • Make Avast more communicative
    • It has the possibility of leaving it our way

    Sophos

    • Navigating the portal can be tricky depending on what needs to be done
    • It would be helpful if the SSLVPN client agent had more logging capabilities

        The interface is no non-sense and easy to understand. No need for any consultants to help implement this solution. The performance is consistent and solid. Paired with a good amount of firmware and definitions, it's hard to find any fault in this product. It's interoperability with other Sophos products make a compelling argument to invest in more Sophos products.

        The week link of Sophos UTM is the customer support. I haven't had to use it often, but when I do, the wait times can easily be an hour or two. Once I am talking to someone, the support is excellent. The support agents are knowledgeable and can quickly diagnose the issue and get you to a resolution.

        Alternatives Considered

        Avast Software

        In my institution we didn't choose Avast, as they see the best for the team, that is, in this case I didn't have access to the other Avast. But in this case, I can pass on my experience with the Avast that I use. It is great, but it is necessary to improve in several aspects, such as the structure.

        I would rate Sophos second on this list right below Webroot. Webroot has an easier user interface and policy builder. However, Sophos would be on top of its UI would be improved. I would rank CrowStrike third and McAfee last. Sophos is great for complex environments that have multiple needs.

        • Sophos came in right on budget for our needs - perfect ROI
        • Security is like life insurance - you can always buy more, but finding that sweet spot where you are covered just right is key.
