Product Reviews
Sophos UTM Software FullGuard - subscription license (1 year) is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The technical support is really good and the representatives are very responsive. Valuable Features:Reverse proxy, SSL VPN, web & email protectionFor me, those features were most valuable from a security point of view;• Reverse proxy is very important for shielding application frameworks.• For VPN, we all knew that PPTP was broken and is not secure anymore. For Ipsec, you need to have opened ports, and if you are in a hotel who only has ports 80 and 443 opened, you can’t do anything.SSLVPN is one of the solutions. Yes, you can use DirectAccess, but there are some limitations, too.For DirectAccess, you need to have all those computers joined in one domain.• Web & email protection is a nice feature because you have all of those controls in one dashboard. This is of course for small and maybe some mid-size companies. For larger and enterprise, it’s another story.Improvements to My Organization:Less and faster administration, full control of traffic, and a lot of futures included in the base price.Room for Improvement:The goal for small companies is to have one administration dashboard -- from where you can manage antivirus for computers, firewalls, IDS, IPS, mobile phones, tablets, etc.Sophos UTM ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/sophos-utm ) is on the right path to getting there.Use of Solution:Sophos UTM 135 = two years.Sophos UTM 115 = one year.Stability Issues:No problems with stability.Scalability Issues:No problems with scalability.Technical Support:The technical support is really good and the representatives are very responsive.Previous Solutions:Cisco ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/vendors/cisco ) (didn’t achieve expectations), Microsoft TMG ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/microsoft-forefront-threat-management-gateway ) (end of life).Initial Setup:The setup is straightforward, but I suggest hiring an expert for integration. This is your first line of defense, and there is no room for mistakes.Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing:Sophos UTM’s are not the cheapest but they are not the most expensive. Create a checklist of what you need, and go through it with a sales representative. They will advise the right license for your company and I’m sure you can get some discount.Other Solutions Considered:Cisco, CheckPoint UTM-1 ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/check-point-utm-1 )Other Advice:Create a checklist with your requirements, test the solution, and if it passes everything, implement it.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The email alert on event triggers is a valuable feature. The ability to disconnect the VPN connection needs to improve. Valuable Features:The most valuable features are:* Ease of configuration of the firewall rules and routing.* The email alert on event triggers.* Internal storage for logging, as you do not have to get another server to store the logs.Room for Improvement:The ability to disconnect the VPN connection needs to improve. Currently, in order to disconnect an existing VPN connection of a device, the admin needs to change the password of the user.Use of Solution:I have used this solution for two and a half years.Stability Issues:We encountered stability issues more on the Web Filtering feature where certain valid websites are blocked or the video cannot be played and it requires extra exceptional configuration.Scalability Issues:There were no scalability issues.Technical Support:I would rate the technical support a 8/10.Previous Solutions:Previously, we were using WatchGuard UTM. The pricing and ease of use of the configuration were the reasons as to why we moved over to this solution.Initial Setup:Setup is straightforward.Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing:From time to time, there is a promotion and it is more cost effective to get the 3 years subscription licensing upfront.Other Solutions Considered:We looked at Fortinet ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/vendors/fortinet ).Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It has good performance but their quality control needs to be improved. Valuable Features:* Web filtering* Application filtering* IPS* QoSImprovements to My Organization:I used to work for a Cyberoam distributor. In one of my projects, I deployed it in a university with 1500 users (students), all of whom had different QoS and web category policies, different authentication policies. I then had to connect the university’s branches, in different cities, with a Site to Site VPN using AD authentication available for just the account. This was to restrict access only to the accounting application server of the other branch. It was quite complicated to do, but it was very successful.In another project for a bank, I secured a banking application server and attached a database using two Cyberoam devices on the edge, with a Juniper device in the middle. This was for securing three different segments - internal users, internal developers and external visitors. The final topology was so secure that, even for some testing purposes, we were not able to break in to change the configuration and access the system as a third party.Room for Improvement:Not very often, but there are some minor bugs in the products. I think their quality control can improve.Use of Solution:I’ve used it since 2008, so seven years so far.It is a complex product so I’d rate the performance and number of features as 10/10, and 7/10 for the consistency and programing.Deployment Issues:Generally speaking, the Cyberoam development is quite simple, easy and straight forward. Overall it depends on the network complexity.Stability Issues:Compared to a Cisco router, Cyberoam UTMs need to be restarted more often. From my point of view, this is acceptable, since many aspects of the product functions in layer seven, while a Cisco router just routes!Scalability Issues:Since all the products models from the smallest to the strongest have the same features and capabilities, I can say that the product is extremely scalable. However, if you need to upgrade the whole device to a stronger model, I would say scalability is 8/10, which considering the differences between the number of ports in different models (I could even give 9/10, but let’s stay with 8/10!).Customer Service:It really depends on the retailer, representative and local distributor. Nothing much to say.Technical Support:One of the most considerable advantages of Cyberoam over the competitors is the after sales support. The 24/7 support assists the customers, even from minor to very major issues, and they chase up the issue until the final resolution by email and phone. They are really trustworthy.Previous Solutions:In a different continent, a different company, and as a customer (not a distributor) I still used the same brand, Cyberoam! It’s cheap, flexible, easy to configure and easy to manage.Initial Setup:I’ve been using the product for ages and I have deployed it in hundreds of networks and complexities. However, using the configuration wizard, the initial configuration is extremely easy and straightforward (depending on the network complexity of course).Implementation Team:I have always installed it myself.Cost and Licensing Advice:It's hard to estimate, as it depends on the complexity, and scale of the network.It takes anywhere from one day to less than a week in normal situations.Other Solutions Considered:I have evaluated Juniper, WatchGuard and a couple of minor brands. So far, I can still raise the flag of Cyberoam.Other Advice:Since the features on the model are the same, and it is just the hardware that gets improved for higher models, I usually advise a model one and a half times bigger than the number of the network users. For instance a 1000 user network can be easily served by a 1500NG. However based on my experience, since not all the users are active simultaneously, even 1 to 1 is sufficient. Considering the capability of HA, expansion is simple if needed.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Some of the valuable features are web and email protection and VPN. Valuable Features:All the features are valuable.* Web protection: Allows me to control unnecessary web traffic into the company network.* Email protection: Protects the company from spam and malicious emails.* RED and VPN: Provides an easy and secure way to connect branch offices so I can easily control them.* WAF and DMZ: Provides an easy and very secure way to publish your internal servers. Enables you to have more than one WAN and to use them for load balancing and controlling the traffic through them.Improvements to My Organization:Before implementing Sophos UTM, we had a lot of problems with:* Malicious URLs* Spam* Unnecessary internet traffic* difficulties in connecting and controlling branch officesAfter implementing Sophos UTM, the percentage of infected computers because of bad URLs was been reduce by 90%. A lot of spam emails were blocked. Additionally, I created a whitelist for company emails and a blacklist for unnecessary emails.Branch offices have the same protection like the main office and communication between offices is very easy. We created rules for one-way communication for some branch offices and two-way communication for another office. You have got a lot of abilities for different configurations between offices.But after migrating to Sophos XG and the new XG OS, things got easier, more secure, and more interesting. Specifically, we had the ability to generate different reports for different protection types, different end users, or different services.With the new XG OS, I have better control of my network and I can easily detect malicious and unnecessary traffic.Use of Solution:We used UTM for four years, and XG for one year.Stability Issues:At the beginning, there were stability issues, due to a poorly configured switch. I had problems with HA, but after that, there were no stability issues.Technical Support:I only contacted technical support five or six times. They were very professional. I will rate them as excellent.Previous Solutions:We did not use a different solution before this one.Initial Setup:The initial setup, at the beginning, was very complex. After some time, everything got clear. I did the migration of UTM to the new OS XG by myself and I didn't need help from technical support.Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing:Think twice when you are choosing your Sophos UTM/XG. I made a mistake the first time because I needed more powerful hardware for my network. I did not choose very well. The price and the license are definitely elements for which you must think twice. I had excellent cooperation with the Sophos sales team and my mistake was quickly resolved.Other Solutions Considered:We evaluated SonicWall, Palo Alto, and Untangle.Other Advice:I love all Sophos products, but the combination of Sophos XG, Sophos RED, and Sophos advanced endpoint protection with intercept X is something that all IT professionals and security officers will love and want to have.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ​It was straight forward and much simpler to set up than expected.​ Valuable Features:Content filtering as this enables me to control that which employees can view at the different time quotas.Improvements to My Organization:There has been great productivity as during working hours , I have managed to to set them to view that which relates to the nature of our business.Room for Improvement:VPN configuration is not very swift.Use of Solution:4 years.Stability Issues:None.Scalability Issues:None.Technical Support:7.Previous Solutions:Cisco, changed solutions due to its command based interface.Initial Setup:It was straightforward and much simpler to set up than expected.Cost and Licensing Advice:It is very reasonably priced as compared to other solutions in the market.Other Solutions Considered:I only evaluated Cyberoam and found it to not be user friendly.Other Advice:It is certainly worth a try as it does the job well.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It has good bandwidth management, although licensing costs are high. Valuable Features:* Management Console* Security* Bandwidth managementUse of Solution:I've used it for six years.Deployment Issues:Yes once when we updated a new firmware, then we again rolled back to previous one.Customer Service:Customer service is very poor.Technical Support:They have good technical support.Initial Setup:When we purchased it, it was complex, but now it’s straightforward. The SSO is introduced in our premise only. At that time we only had the requirement of SSO.Implementation Team:The first time through the vendor, and the second time our own in house team did it.Cost and Licensing Advice:Pricing and licensing is high.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Application Control should be able to be managed with users; however, we now have a protected, standardized network. Valuable Features:The web filter and the ATP (Advanced Threat Protection) are great and easy to manage, and the integrated WAF (Web Application Firewall) allows the administrator to seamlessly protect HTTP/S services without having to pay thousands of dollars. The just introduced Sandstorm system for protection, is awesome as well.Improvements to My Organization:Our datacenter cloud services such as email, and web services for internal and external use, had to be protected with different systems and the web services where left really unprotected, since we used an standard IPS/IDS to protect ourselves from web attacks (from the outside) which nowadays are really sophisticated. Also, we had to employ many work hours to have a protected, standardized network. With Sophos EndPoint and Sophos UTM, we simplified and also protected our network at the same time, with less work force.Room for Improvement:Sophos UTM has many improvements that I would suggest, but the main one is for the Application Control to be managed with users as well, and with timeframes (schedules) for the administrator to allow certain apps outside an specific timeframe, or vice versa.Use of Solution:We've been using Sophos UTM since 2012 as we were looking for an easy and robust network protection tool at the same timesolution. We're using it in conjunction with Sophos EPP.Deployment Issues:No issues encountered.Stability Issues:No issues encountered.Scalability Issues:The scalability is awesome as when you need the network protection systems to grow immediately, you just activate and license the exact same box, and configure it in cluster mode for Active-Active mode in Cluster/High Availability.Technical Support:This is where Sophos vendor outclasses every other vendor. They have grown so much throughout the last four to five years, but they have grown as well in their capability to attend support cases. We've had some really advanced cases, and we have never been forgotten or left behind.Previous Solutions:We used a commercial product, Untangle, with our own brand called Rhino Box. Untangle did not invest in the development of features as we expected, such as the adoption of IPSec VPNs (they had it but very limited), and IPv6. This was what made us do research for our SMB/Enterprise market offering. We tried out Sophos UTM (recently purchased as Astaro UTM) and it was really easy to deploy and came with Sophos Support, which is awesome.Initial Setup:The initial setup is straightforward. Sophos brand is well known in the market for being a unique and powerful tool that is simple to deploy and manage. This is what makes it different from any other vendors. The Sophos UTM, comes with a deployment "Wizard for Dummies" since it show the wizard at the initial setup, and in less than three minutes, you can have your box up and running. Also for Policies deployment, you are clicks away to customize your security settings.Implementation Team:We always deploy by ourselves, so that way we can test how the customer will see the initial implementation. Our main advice, is to read the manual, and follow the wizards that comes with each tool. Also, it is strongly recommended to have a professional firm contracted for the initial setup, and support, as we are, to can design, and help with any kind of implementation issues.ROI:The ROI is in 12-16 months, since with this kind of tool, we deliver the best of breed protection, and increment the focus of the end user, in being productive.Cost and Licensing Advice:I recommend you get the three year licenses, since Sophos offers three years for the price of two. I would also recommend that you acquire any Sophos Licensing with Professional Services added, that way, you'll have the best experience possible.Other Advice:They have supported our business venture since 2010, and will do for many years. We have studied closely the different product portfolio, and each one of them, are carefully developed.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:We have been a Gold Partner since 2010.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We do not have misuse of bandwidth and the firewall and anti-spam filter work great for me. Valuable Features:Most valuable feature I am using I would say is the bandwidth management for users. I have users who misuse the net and I have given them caps so it is properly utilized. Another feature I use is the VPN. I have an entity that requires 24x7x365 connectivity and the Cyberoam is very simple when it comes to monitoring that or refreshing that connection.Improvements to My Organization:A simple example would be the bandwidth usage. We do not have misuse of bandwidth and the firewall and anti-spam filter work great for me. I see a lot of dos attacks that are stopped which is also a plus point. So organizations productivity is higher thanks to the Cyberoam as users are restricted from unnecessary websites and bandwidth is capped and company functions do not suffer.Room for Improvement:Not many things would need to be added but I strongly feel it could be made more robust. For example, the cooling system in the device could do with a good revamp. There are times when the device gets too hot and begins to misbehave. Other things that could be improved are the password complexity policy and the password history policy. One thing that could be done as well is to create role based users like we have in the active directory. There are times when we have users who are not admins but need to monitor the device and access levels do not exist for such users.Technical Support:We don't contact Sophos directly. It is usually through a local partner/vendor.Other Advice:I would recommend for others to go and view the demo. Make sure this device will suit you needs especially in terms of expansion. Also look into support as not many times support is available. It is a simple to understand product but does require some skill to manage and maintain the device for optimal usage.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
