Cisco Firepower 4100 Series

When we are asked by local partners which security equipment we use we always recommend our Cisco security products. The Firepower firewall is no exception and we can easily recommend this to others who need a fast, secure, and well built system that integrates well with all your existing hardware and software.

Sophos XG Firewall

In the SMB space [Sophos XG Firewall] can be very well received and utilized, even without a dedicated IT staff. Larger companies can use it as well but I feel there are better options as the company scales up.

Honestly we didn't get the premium support from them, but our partner has been supportive. Online forums are also a good place to learn things from.

Sophos XG Firewall

The firewall that was in use at the first location before expanding was a cheaply made open source box that couldn't do much even as a basic firewall. We had looked at various companies but came to the conclusion that Sophos was the right fit for us and it has been that way for years now.
