Citrix

The best usage scenario for Citrix Netscaler Gateway is in enterprises with a high volume of telecommuting users or in situations where the user needs to access certain applications from anywhere. In our case as a hospital, we need our doctors to access the medical records of the patients and be able to carry out any required action, with a high level of security and with a certain agility.

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.

  • Very helpful to all the people using Citrix Gateway to do their job.
  • Using Citrix Gateway agents are being productive and more successful in their roles as long as there's no issue or system down.

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

Citrix

  • I suggest make it more faster because sometimes its lagging but not all the time.
  • When it comes to Notepad I suggest having options for the size of fonts, and color of fonts, to make it look nicer.
  • I suggest making it more user-friendly, and more features so that users can perfectly maximize this tool.

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.

      Support Rating

      Citrix

      Support is pretty good and pretty fast to respond. I can't say I can really complain about the support experience I've had with them, as they've resolved issues within a reasonable time-frame. Of course, they could always be faster and better, but I think for what we pay, it's well worth the money.

      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

      Citrix

      I have not used any products that are somewhat similar to what Citrix Gateway does. And I don't think my company does have another product like it. I have worked in 3 different lines of business for the past 3 years in the company but this is the only time I was required to use it.

      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.

      Return on Investment

      Citrix

      • we moved from Cisco to Citrix VPN, and no longer had to worry about certificate issues
      • profile issues from Cisco were no longer a problem with Citrix.
      • the amount of time PER VPN call dropped significantly in the internal helpdesk, however, the volume of calls stayed the same.

      Sophos

      • 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.
