We have been a Sophos customer for the most part but i have seen some other offerings from SonicWall, Barracuda, and Cisco. While they all offer nice products, we've always been content with our Sophos XG firewalls, especially as they release more and more features/etc.

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.

I was a big fan of Cisco ASA products, but when I saw all of the security feature differences between both firewalls, I moved to Sophos devices. Its sandbox, IPS, and many more features are really advanced. Cisco does not provide features like this.

Cisco ASA is not [a] true next generation firewall if you want to protect from 7 layers and malware attacks then you need firepower services but this service is very costly. In Sophos all the advanced security features are [less] cost[ly].
