"Great firewall with great features"

What do you like best?

1. Best for Small offices to Enterprises offices and budgetary as well.

2. An easy administration which I had never seen in any firewall.

3. The look & feel of the User interface as well as Admin console is user-friendly.

4. Easy creation of rules per group.

5. Easy model numbering means you can take a good guess what level of product you're likely to need right from the off, especially for SMBs.

6.Great reporting features.

What do you dislike?

I can't say there's anything I dislike but content filtering can be enhanced and sometime it is easy to bypass all the security.

A bit slow with all the features turned on.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I can recommend this firewall for small-medium companies but please make sure to check everything before buying because it may have less feature what is required.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

1. Proxy

2. VPN

3. Live monitoring of the user activity, reporting

"Good as Cyberoam; Better as Sophos"

What do you like best?

The On-Board Reporting is really what made the difference with these UTMs. Having the drill-down capabilities without additional licensing or appliances was invaluable.

What do you dislike?

The Web Filtering policies were good, but left a lot to be desired, now that they are owned by Sophos the new XG model UTMs and SF-OS are much better. The Cyberoams IPS is, however, bad! Even if you turn it off, it continues running because it is broken on almost every appliance. It is almost as if it was trying to be as bad as Cisco IPS implementations.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Sophos owns Cyberoam at the moment, and have made vast improvements by enhancing the Cyberoam OS. It is now called SF-OS or Sophos Firewall. Its very good. Comparable to Sophos UTM9 in many ways.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Layer 8 as they call it, the ability to associate Users with traffic. Very helpful, and ability to provide reports in realtime to managers on-site.

"Cyberoam UTM"

What do you like best?

The UTM is easy to configure. We have VPN connectivity and two internet connection and one intranet connection which are well organized by UTM. Also the security from threats and viruses is good. I can control what a user can open while browsing. We have omitted all the social network with few steps. There is a inbuilt category of browsing options and you can easily off and on access of a particular category. These UTM lasts long.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the system hangs and I have to reset all the connection to avoid major shutdown. There are a few security flaws as of system was attacked despite cyberoam presence. The dashboard of the system should be more verbose and display more information.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definite but for well organized network

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have central mpls connection which is connected to different site plants. Also the sites have their own internet connection. We use intranet via mpls and internet via the local provider. The UTM integrated the two different connection and forward packets accordingly. Main benefits of cyberoam UTM is that they are easy to configure.

"A great performing Unified Threat Management"

The product pricing is good as per the requirement of targeted companies. The look & feel of User interface as well as Admin console is fast & user friendly. The setup is pretty straight forward & does not need any deep tech knowledge. Deployment was very simple & fast.

There were quite some bugs which were streamlined with patches & fixes. The customer care need improvement in quality & technical knowledge. Sometime website links are too large to display in reports & looks really weird. Sometime it takes alot of drilling down to reach the real URL which user has used.

Do try out the trail before finalizing. Go for it only if it takes care of all your requirement else there are many other cheaper tools available in market with most basic features. You do not need any special skilled person to manage this.

Mostly as an advanced firewall for the entire organisation. Used it as user access / content management. Even used it for load balancing of bandwidth.
