    Sophos

    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.

    Stormshield

    It is a very good device to use on a small and medium size company (0-400 users). However I wouldn't use it for very big companies.

    Pros

    Sophos

    • 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.

    Stormshield

    • Easy to manage on a daily basis
    • It goes very deep into analyzing the trafic and the configuration is very thin.
    • The first configuration is not so complex

    Cons

    Sophos

    • 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.

    Stormshield

    • Not everything is possible on the web administration page. We need to use the ssh console to do many things.
    • The logs viewer is not as helpful as on other brands (like ASTARO, SOPHOS,...)

        Sophos

        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

        Return on Investment

        Sophos

        • Positive ROI due to the competitiveness of the product.
        • Positive impact as the device is fully functional and easy to operate.
        • Negative impact when it comes to log integration as it does not support industry logging standards.

        Stormshield

        • It does the job very well once it is correctly configured. By that I mean, it is functioning with the least waste of time and effort for network administrators.
        • If needed the support is efficient.
