Overall Satisfaction with Sophos UTM

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.


  • Firewall Protection. The protection is unmatched, setup it a little daunting, but once set up it pretty much runs itself.
  • Site-to-site VPN. Super easy to deploy so we are able to network all our sites together.
  • The DHCP server function is actually really nice, I prefer using it over the traditional way of using a DC for DHCP.


  • The UI is a bit dated albeit, it is very functional and everything is right at my fingertips.
  • Better documentation. This hardware and software solution is amazing, but as I said previously, it can be a little daunting to set up.
  • Protection. I know that our data, as wells as our guest's data, is protected when using the UTMs.
  • Site-to-site. I've said it multiple times but this is an excellent feature that we use constantly.
The Meraki firewalls are kind of like the little brother of the UTM devices. They work really well and integrate nicely, but it would be better suited for a business that using nothing but Meraki gear. pfSense is a great free tool, but not very business oriented nor is the setup easy by any means.
Great for businesses that need an All In One solution for multiple sites as well as network protection. There are many features that we do not use as a company even though we still use a good bit of them.
