Overall Satisfaction with Sophos XG Firewall

Sophos XG is being used in our main headquarters and also branch office. We also use the entry level to separate the business and production network. This was used to replace our L-3 firewall, Juniper SSG when we were evaluating a next-gen firewall.
  • Reporting.
  • Broad VPN choices to connect.
  • Intuitive interface.
  • Mobile app is needed for IT folks.
  • We manage to control productivity and efficiency by sharing department's internet usage.
  • Sandbox features that are built in probably would have saved us from a lot of issues.
Honestly we didn't get the premium support from them, but our partner has been supportive. Online forums are also a good place to learn things from.
