Sophos was recently identified as one of the leaders in the UTM Magic Quadrant, along with Fortinet and Checkpoint. Gartner defines the unified threat management (UTM) market as multifunction network security products used by small or midsize businesses (SMBs).
Amongst its strengths Gartner identified:
- Sophos’ SG UTM series’ ease of use consistently rates high. The interface contains general guidance on what each feature does, which is useful for SMB operators, who are not all security experts.
- Sophos has good endpoint integration, allowing the firewall to push wireless and VPN policies for mobile devices, and can also restrict access to wireless networks for noncompliant mobile devices.
- Sophos SG UTM series support is available in a variety of European languages, and its local presales and support presence receives positive scores from Gartner customers.
