Product Reviews
Sophos UTM Software FullGuard - subscription license (1 year) is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 14.
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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An Excellent Product, easy to understand for an experienced engineer The Sophos UTM products helped us manage and a global network of more than 20 sites.Their ability to firewall, filter and monitor network traffic and provide VPN connectivity really helped us day to day with such a complex network.We chose the product initially because the user interface was simple to understand and made sense without requiring a long training course for an experienced network engineer to utilise.Central Management is made easy with the Sophos UTM Manager which allows you to set configurations, see patch status and pull reports from all your estate.While the product was originally with Astaro the low end (1xx) units had serious reliability issues and support was extremely challenging to engage with. However, once Sophos took over their world class technical support teams soon brought responsiveness up to the level I would expect from a premium product. And the newer hardware is much better quality.The ability to have either software, hardware or virtual appliances allows excellent freedom of choice.High Availability is easy to configure and works really well, with options to have either active \ active or active \ passive depending on your needs and budget.The fact you can use the full product for Free at home is a wonderful idea for engineers to become more familiar with the product and keep their skills up to date.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We can block malicious and unproductive application and sites to improve productivity. Valuable Features:* NG Firewall* Application Filter* Web Filter* IPSAll these features are valuable to us because we can block malicious and unproductive application and sites to improve productivity and security in our network, audit users and machines and protect us against exploitation.Improvements to My Organization:It's improved productivity as well as user and network security.. It's helped with internet access management and provides security against external attacks.Room for Improvement:We have had issues with malicious sites and external scans.Deployment Issues:We didn't have any issues with deployment.Stability Issues:We haven't had issues with stability.Scalability Issues:We haven't had issues with scalability.Other Advice:You should hire a Cyberoam specialist to manage it.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Virtual Cyberoam allows the customer granular controls at their level and then allows us overriding controls at a parental level. Valuable Features:Cyberoam is our low-end product that we use for smaller customers or ones where application security is not a priority. Cyberoam has good AD integration for user configuration and web controls which we like a lot and it’s easy to manage and maintain. We mostly use the virtual models in VMware.Improvements to My Organization:The virtual cyberoam has allowed us to segment our cloud customers via a virtual firewall instance per customer as a second level of security behind our primary systems firewalls. This allows the customer granular controls at their level and then allows us overriding controls at a parental level. Makes for great security.Room for Improvement:You can now load the Sophos software onto a Cyberoam box to use the new feature set, although it would be nice if it came with it.Sophos bought Cyberoam a short while ago and they have amalgamated the Sophos technologies with the existing Sophos ones and some from astaro which they previously bought.. So there is now a Sophos firmware which you can install onto the Cyberoam instead of the Cyberoam one. Because it’s Linux based it’s very portable.Other Solutions Considered:Great product for the price.Other Advice:Cyberoam was bought by Sophos and the new Sophos firewalls take the next step adding more functionality and capability in the box. Cyberoam was bought by Sophos and the new Sophos firewalls take the next step adding more functionality and capability in the box.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:We are a Gold Partner with Cyberoam.

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 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.
