We were originally using the old Sophos UTM but upgraded to the XG several years ago. We are using it for several functions, including web content filtering, wireless access point management, VPN, and firewalling. We've had good experiences with it thus far, it was a little rough upon release but has gotten significantly better over time. It's also been a pretty reliable device, we use two of them at one of our locations (one is dedicated for VPN use) and we use another at a separate location for a total of 3 we are using.

We currently use two [Sophos XG Firewall's] across two locations. Eventually going up to three locations all with redundant backup firewalls for high availability. Along with that we also use the MDM and endpoint protection along with it. They have been keeping our business safe for years now.

I have been working in network security for the last 3 years and I have worked with lots of firewall devices. As per my knowledge, this is one of the best firewall devices in the market at a low cost. Sophos XG Firewall provides you endpoint security, protection from malicious, malware attacks, and protection from any type of cyberattacks. There are lots of others features are available which make this device the best security product.

We are using Sophos XG Firewall for managing remote VPN & Multifactor authentication. We are also using Sophos XG Firewall for implement of VLANs across the different departments. We are using it across all the organization & main issue we resolved after implementation of Sophos XG Firewall is Two factor authentication. The best feature of Sophos XG Firewall we found is site to site VPN.
