Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Sophos UTM is being used as our primary Firewall at all of our offices. We also have it set up with an Encrypted site to site VPN tunnel between each office. It is allowing our remote office to use the local applications at our main office. Non-office remote workers connect using the VPN client on the desktops. Sophos UTM filters all web, FTP email, etc. entering our build. It allows us to set up group-based policies, integrates well will AD, and provides a level of security we didn't have before. We chose Sophos UTM as we wanted a product that combined well we Sophos Central.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

I was first introduced to Sophos UTM when I changed jobs and the firm I went to had a Sophos UTM firewall. With all that I had to learn about the firm's infrastructure, I was happy to discover how common sense and simple the UTM interface was. Since then I've deployed Sophos UTMs at several of our other office locations. Sophos UTM makes creating VPN tunnels straightforward and adding additional other network components like wireless access points almost effortless in comparison to some other enterprise-grade WAP configurations.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We currently use Sophos SG 220s running in an HA environment at all of our locations. Our entire IT department is responsible for the monitoring and upkeep of the UTMs. We use it as a primary firewall and as a site-to-site VPN for seamless integration. On top of all the UTMs, we also have a central management SUM that we use to deploy updates, changes, and rules to each site.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We implemented Sophos UTM across our entire organization over 5 sites and to our entire remote salesforce. I feel Sophos has provided us the protection and security that an organization needs in this era of threats and attacks.
I am happy to report that we have had no breaches or incidents since its implementation.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We used Sophos UTM to provide a common manageable firewall infrastructure across over a dozen sites across the globe. It allowed us to protect the sites with URL filtering and anti-virus protection and create a global VPN for a competitive cost. The interface was easy to learn for our engineers and the central management tools helped me monitor the entire estate.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Sophos UTM and Sophos XG Appliances, deliver great security along with affordable pricing for every company. Sophos is great as a visionary company, keeping up with IT Managers' requests for features within their products (specially Sophos SG Appliances and XG NGFWs). Their hardware addresses a constant situation where many competitors fail; they are scalable, and tough (SSDs Hard Drives, and Intel latest generation processors is about it). 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). Sophos is honest, with their products and technology.

Sophos was used as our primary firewall and unified threat management. We had two Sophos units installed for fail over purposes.
