Overall Satisfaction with Sophos Secure Web Gateway

Sophos Web Security Gateway seamlessly integrates with an organization's needs creating an impenetrable barrier for inside users to correctly use the Internet. There are hundreds and hundreds of categories for IT and Admins to register and control. Also, the physical or virtual implementation helps IT Admins to lower costs when needed and deploy the software easily.
  • When IT Admins need to deploy virtually.
  • When IT Admins want to have high availability without an extra cost (via the Virtual Appliance Deployment).
  • When IT Admins want to control and give the internet fair use within the organization.
  • The registration process with Sophos sometimes has issues with the installation key.
  • The registration key can't be changed after installation. They should allow for placing a new one.
  • When renewing the system it's almost impossible for the end-user to place a new key. You need a high-level engineer to do this.
  • Pricing flexibility against competitors is a great positive impact.
  • Deployment options are always a great positive impact.
  • Our CTO and IT Departments have seen ROI in less than a year. We have noticed an increase in overall productivity from co-workers once we took control over the internet and connectivity.
Sophos Secure Web Gateway has flexible pricing and deployment options. It offers a huge range of categorization options and they also pull web categorization info from other services.
Sophos Secure Web Gateway works perfectly for any SMB/Enterprise environment where the IT Admin wants to control the internet. With that said, I can not think of an organization that doesn't need to control or audit the usage of their internet.
