What differentiates Sophos Firewall from other similar products?

I like how it provides 24/7 support whenever there is an attack. You can manage the firewall with one person and do not need an entire team to set up and manage the firewall. I do also like how the appliance warranty can be replaced.

What is your favorite aspect of this product?

The dashboard is simple and user-friendly. You can create monthly accounts, management trial licenses, firewalls and set-up policies all in a centralized location. I love how the dashboard notifies you about the status of your license. Sophos has received better overall ratings than Meraki.

What do you dislike most about this product?

One of Sophos main competitors is AWS and Sophos is retiring its on-premise products in 2023. It remains to be seen how well the cloud based options do in the future.

What recommendations would you give to someone considering this product?

Improve how to integrate Sophos with other products,

Pros

  • Helps Innovate
