Pros: -The best thing about SPHOS is the ease of use even a nontechie person with enough understanding will be able to set up a basic environment.
-The GUI is extremely user friendly and all the features are very well placed because of which using this product is extremely handy.
-Best for Simple setups i.e if you run an organisation of 20-200 users and you need to provide a basic secure internet connectivity along with some url/web filtering; this product is a good choice.
-As compared to other products in the same segment sophos UTM seems pocket friendly which is why startups in south asia are opting this product.
-Support is just awesome; one can expect resolution within few minutes the call gets logged

Cons: -When it comes to complex networks, I have seen this product failing haplessly especially when it comes to routing protocols
-URL filtering just works but doesn't always behave as it ideally should behave especially when TLS/SSL is used.
-Few advanced features (such as vpn with overlapping subnets) that aren't supported with this box
-Granular control over the applications is missing too; I believe this has to be accomplished masterly as nowadays there is very high risk of layer 7 attacks such as ransomware.

Overall: This product is implemented by me and my team at few of our customer offices.Benefits are enlisted as follows
-We installed this prodct as routed firewall, first line of defense against unprotected network which made our network secure and solved our basic purpose of providing internet connectivity to user by using NAT.
-Its SSL vpn feature benefited the users who are working from home or outside office to access the internal resources flawlessly.
-It helped us manage the bandwidth of leased line.

Pros: Excellent interface, reporting and protection features.

Cons: Some desired features have been on their development todo list longer than would like.

Overall: I have used both free version at home and commercial SG series hardware at office for about 10 years since it was an Astaro product. The quality and features grow every year, and there is very little it can't do. The HTML5 web interface for management is great and laid out quite well for finding what you want to configure or what reports you are looking for.

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure you know what you're doing when setting up firewall rules. Allowing any to any is a quick way to negate any other protection your firewall provides

Pros: The setup was smooth and easy, the GUI is simple and has all the features and tools you need. Sophos's key points are the excellent security and threat management which is essential for any company.

Cons: Can't really say anything negative about this product other than the price is a bit too high.

Overall: This solution has secured and protected our business for over 2 years now. Very easy to manage, requires little training to get familiar.

Recommendations to other buyers: I would definitely recommend you check out this solution for your business. Setup is easier than Sonicwall and Cisco, and managing Sophos is simply a breeze. Do yourself a favor and go check their website.
