I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

For Windows 2008 R2, download the CIS benchmark document. Everything IMO in there

For Sophos, you should be able to see administrator deployment guide on practice in firewall settings.

Importantly, run a learning period in monitor mode for seeing the application needed access through firewall, and after the period, fine tune setting till you are satisfied. Once you have covered everything, create policies from your rules and assign them as required. Reset the firewall to 'Block by default' from monitor mode such that it will then block all traffic that is not specified in your policies.
