Check Point 2200 Appliances- Discontinued

I would say you need someone experienced in Check Point Appliances. You must know the Linux command line as there are a lot of commands that aren't in the guild. I would say 2200 is for a medium-sized company. The appliance we have can't handle a big company and it would be too expensive for a small company.

Sophos SG Firewall Appliances

It is a great fit for small to medium enterprises who are low on budget. The pricing is very competitive when compared with other major players like Palo Alto and the features match any NGFW Firewall in the market. However, in my opinion when it comes to massive performance requirements, I would say the Sophos SG Firewall Appliances lacks the sheer power that other devices in the market have.

Pros

  • Performance
  • Ease of management
  • Functionality

Sophos SG Firewall Appliances

  • Sophos' support is actually pretty decent compared to Fortinet. We as a customer who uses both have first-hand experience in that. Sophos' way of support is much more hands-on. For instance, if you raise a ticket, they will contact you via chat, email, or phone in a timely manner and based on your SLA.
  • Sophos antivirus can speak with your firewall natively so that when a threat happens it can be blocked on a network level. We had first-hand experience of this where there was a potential outbreak on the network but the machines were getting isolated and prevented the spreading of malware.
  • Sophos comes with a whole suite of products like Intercept X, MDM, Antivirus, On-premise, and a virtual firewall. So they are like a one shop stop for all your security needs. We liked Sophos compared to our other firewall, which only had on-premise and virtual firewall boxes.

Cons

Check Point 2200 Appliances- Discontinued

  • Cost: very expensive to purchase and maintain.
  • Lack of disk space and memory are the biggest issues we have.
  • Hard/impossible to migrate from physical to virtual appliance.
Randy MacFarland | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sophos SG Firewall Appliances

  • The user interface could use a refresh. It's been a few years.
  • Not having the ability to use an Open VPN configuration is a little disappointing.
  • Home license is too restrictive with only 50 IPs.

It all depends on who you get for support. There are a few that know the hardware/software well and some that don't. You can ask for a second level if you can't get your answer or issues resolved. But overall it's good. I would give it a higher score but we have waited for 4-6 hours for a call back on certain issues.

The biggest selling point for sophos is their vendor support. Those guys put a smile on our faces. There are multiple ways you can contact their support like chat, or telephone or email. They are very responsive and they do have very knowledgable and patient support staff. We have raised tickets at all odd hours and they have been addressed correctly

Both were great products but Check Points seemed to be easier to manage and more stable. While cost was also comparable we chose Check Point because of our enterprise investment with them
