The user interface is modern and is laid out in a logical manner. The firewall rules are easy to setup and understand. It integrates nicely with the iView reporting appliance for advanced reporting and traffic analysis. Certificates are easily managed. Preconfigured rules for protecting web and mail servers such as IIS and Exchange make setup quick and easy. The User Portal feature is very useful for easy deployment of SSL VPN clients to users. Keeping firmware up to date is made easy with the click of a few buttons. Several authentication options are available such as LDAP and Radius which makes it easy to integrate into an existing environment. Site-to-site VPNs are very easy to get up an running.

Different use of language of terms coming from a Sonicwall and things are segregated a little differently. For example, setting up site-to-site VPNs were a little different, setting up NAT was a little different and this being my first brand new enterprise firewall, there was a learning curve that was harder than it could have been if Sophos had provided a migration guide from Sonicwall to Sophos or something of the sorts. No tool to automate migration from Sonicwall to Sophos XG.

The translation from a Cisco firewall to the XG was very difficult. The customer should not be expected to be an out of the box expert on this new product, as well as their own product (Cisco, Palo Alto, Fortinet, Sonicwall). Sophos should staff their transition engagements with experts that have experience on an assortment of vendors.

We've been very happy with the implimentation, and the HA capabilities. Our intereactions with support have been hit-or-miss

The product worked well in the beginning and support was excellent. Often times we'd get the same support person the next time we called in. Shortly after we completed installation we began having regular performance issues to the point where we'd have to reboot the firewall to bring it back to life. Often when we called support we had a hard time getting help and first level support seemed to know less about the product than we did. We ended up disabling many features in the product to maintain the business.
