Strength
Security Heartbeat automates threat responses according to dynamic firewall rules and lateral movement protection, driving the effectiveness and efficiency of this product. We are also impressed with the useful hover-over information bubbles that further explain features throughout the platform.
Weakness
The Sophos XG Firewall offers much-desired capabilities to create rules based on IP, device or geo-location, rather than on users, although we couldn't find them during the initial product test and required additional guidance from the vendor to locate them.
Verdict
Overall, security pros will find Sophos XG Firewall an easy-to-manage, comprehensive UTM product that has extensive features to suit several use cases, including the latest TLS encryption standard.
