Vorteile:

The indepth reports on the users activity with ability tonrestrict access to specific network resource in a user friendly interface.

Disappointing

1 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Not good. Used it for a year, before that used Kerio Control, after many problems and failures went back to Kerio.

Vorteile:

Support is good, also the warranty. Bought 2 XG 210 appliances for HA, had to replace them on warranty 3 times, it was done without issues. Antivirus and overall filtering is good.

Nachteile:

Used it on versions 15 and 16, each update broke something, even minor ones. HA in paper sounds good but it was a risk, almost every time we updated it crashed and had to force a restart. Interface is slow and poorly designed. Its almost impossible to get a clear view of what traffic is passing in real time. Overly complex and limited at the same time.

I'm sorry to hear you had such a disappointing experience with early versions of the product. We've invested heavily in our quality and testing processes since then. I hope you'll consider giving us another chance in the future.

Takes Getting Used To...

5 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: I realize that it sounds overall negative, but I do actually expect to have a positive term (committed to a minimum of 3 years). Learning curves are inevitable. I really enjoy the flexibility, the power, and the ability to keep multiple firewalls in sync with each other. Security is complicated, and so far I feel like it will get the job done, and done well.

Vorteile:

I feel pretty confident in its ability to keep the network secure. Ours is connected to the Sophos UTM and Endpoint Protection software, and I do really like how they are able to talk to each other. There is good amount of customizability, and since switching to Sophos from our previous vendor, I've enjoyed that ability to better differentiate the networks and even time-based access on a per network basis.

Nachteile:

There's a few things I wish were different. The biggest gap is that it doesn't have any sort of mDNS reflector. Our previous router had that, and needing to configure a separate server for that purpose has been far more involved that I would like. If the router had the feature built-in, it would bring me much joy. The other big one is the logging. It's really designed more for a business environment where you "trust" your employees. So the logs aren't designed to help you figure out if someone is trying to break rules, but rather to find potentially compromised devices. Since I work at a boarding school, we really want to work with the families to correct bad behavior, not just set up some obstacles and walk away. And then, coming from Ubiquiti, I have found the interface cumbersome to understand. It's taken a fair amount of getting used to. While there are many features, I feel like I have to do a lot of clicking and hunting to get changes implemented, confirmed, and troubleshot.

A cost effective and feature rich UTM

5 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: Sophos is one of the best UTM devices in the market and it is a reliable product.
we have been using it in our remote offices to control internet traffic and it has never let us down.

Vorteile:

it has all UTM features in a single box like web filtering, IPS, anti-virus, URL filtering, application filtering, VPN and even anti-spam. the GUI is very user friendly and you can easily navigate through basic features without any training or tutorial. the software updates are regular and easy to deploy. web and URL filters are simple and straight forward to apply and works the way you want them to.

Nachteile:

the only drawback is lack of local support in different countries and lack of training material and training centers available to users.

sophos xg firewall usage

5 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: It is a preferable product with ease of use and pricing for computing.

Vorteile:

The cyberoam product, formerly known as Sophos, is a simple product to integrate with other easy-to-use products for the IT department. The interface performance of the system allows you to see everything.

Nachteile:

You can write detailed security rules in Sophos. If you synchronize with the Endpoint product, you will provide even more detailed user security.
