Recently I found out an opportunity for us, as a company, to deliver something that many competitors fail at, HIGH AVAILABILITY with just 1 license. While other vendors, try to squeeze the companies for every penny, Sophos address that issue, and is honest about it: They deliver High Availability in Active/Passive mode, with two identical hardware options, with just one license (with their main competitor, you MUST buy two licenses, which makes the solution more expensive).

Negative impact when we've been asked about a 300 Access Point solution for several projects and we can't deliver a robust wifi solution managed by the UTM. Great positive impact when our company decided to invest in Sophos by representing them, and we created a very strong goodwill partnership, and almost in every LatAm country everybody knew who Sophos is.

  • Sophos was very easy to deploy.
  • The management console keeps us up to date with all the happens of the product.
  • We have yet to be able to implement the mobile device management - I'm not sure if that's because it is difficult, or just a daunting task.
For a business our size, the pricing, functionality and feature set were just right. We have about 400 users and the deployment tools in Sophos UTM are just right to help us remove our old antivirus (AV) software and deploy all the new tools of this platform. My team had no complaints.

Sophos was used as our primary firewall and unified threat management. We had two Sophos units installed for fail over purposes.
  • Anti-spam is better than most standalone products and has a very low false positive rating
  • Firewall rules are easy to set up and configure with a nice user-friendly interface
  • Free VPN capabilities which does no require a subscription unlike most other firewalls
  • Support is great but sometimes slow but other than that the product is the best in the market
Small to large businesses - Sophos UTM will have you covered. It has every feature you need. During an ISO 27001 audit, the auditor was very pleased to know we were using Sophos UTM.

It is easy to set up, and easy to learn, especially as you can get a free home license to use and play with. I use the virtual appliance at the moment and it just works.

  • Faster and more robust wireless Access Points, or different vendor-like compatibility.
Well suited, for people who are smart and practical about net security. Less appropriate where IT management, needs a fast wireless solution to be managed by the UTM. Sophos lacks of good Wireless AP's, and now that Sophos is in that field, they should address this weakness right away. Bottom line: Sophos is great in every scenario, except robust and fast wifi.

I am currently using Sophos UTM Home Version to protect my connection at home.
  • Daily Reporting is a great asset
  • I love the free AV that I can deploy to my desktops and laptops at home.
  • Make it easier to setup port forwarding and rules to allow certain things to go thru.
  • More common settings to port forward and or whitelist things such as IPHONES, DROID's.
  • When you allow a port to go thru have it automatically add the firewall rule
I think its perfect if you have the time to set it up either on a VM or a physical server. I have not had the experience with their appliances.
If it's a small business I feel that it may be difficult to set up and maintain for a small organization.
