Sophos updating policy comparison failure
You can log in to the dashboard from any PC or Mac to install the software directly, or send a link to install Sophos on another device.
Mc Afee Anti Virus Plus (2016) is one of the very few competitors to offer this kind of remote management.
The installer notes that getting the product installed can take up to 15 minutes, which seemed unusually long to me.
But indeed, it did take almost precisely that long.
Installation Both Untangle and Sophos have pretty rock solid installers, both being 64-bit capable and both can run well inside of a VM environment.
The install time for both appliances on my older VMware environment seemed to be on par with one another.
I have long been a fan of Untangle as a UTM and now as its branding as NGFW or Next generation firewall which in most senses is just a different way to brand UTM.
However with more companies offering really good free firewalls and UTM’s I have been on a hunt and compare between Untangle and others out there.
The home use license includes almost all of the full blown functionality with the limit of 50 IP addresses as well as Sophos Endpoint Protection for up to 10 computers.I'm unfamiliar with Sophos Endpoint Security and have taken over a client who is using version 9.5.The Sophos server appears to be updating without issues, but the clients are unable to receive the new updates from the server.UTM or Unified Threat Management devices are becoming more and more popular as businesses and corporations have realized in the past couple of years that a simple tradition firewall of allows and denies is not adequate any longer.Hackers and attacks have become more sophisticated and the attack vector has broadened with the ever increasing “connected” state of most individuals these days with mobile and other devices.
