Overall Satisfaction with Sophos XG Firewall

Sophos XT Firewall [is the] true next generation firewall with all the features, which can help you protect your infrastructure. Lots of [the] latest security [is] available in this device. I am working on this device [for the] last 2 years and I [am] really happy with features like email filtering, endpoint protection, web filtering. This is [a] combination of all the latest security features which are available in market.
  • You can scan every packet deeply through sandboxing.
  • Control the user traffic through content filtering.
  • Put the restrictions on user web traffic through web filtering.
  • Control any type of malware through anti virus.
  • Need more marketing. Lots of people's are not aware of their latest features.
  • Dashboard is not good.
  • Not advance routing available.
  • True UTM device.
  • Very Active customer help for any help.
  • Easy license and cost effective.
  • Should [do] more work on logging and reporting.
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].
