Sophos UTM

I am looking at a replacement for our aging Cyberoam UTM. One of our options is the Sophos X330, which appears to be a good upgrade path for my requirements.

Has anyone used Cyberoam and the moved to Sophos? I am curious if there are setup and managing similarities. Seeing as Sophos acquired Cyberoam a few years ago, I was wondering if the Sophos UTM would be familiar in some way after using Cyberoam. Maybe they had adopted various features, and so the appliance would be familiar in how it was setup.

Would you consider the Sophos XG series easy to setup and deploy? I don't really want to get a technician in to setup the system on the new UTM. I setup our Cyberoam and continue to manage it without a problem, so I am hoping to do this with whichever new one we choose.

Any other thoughts about your positive or negative experience with Sophos UTM's would be appreciated?

UTM is more simple to configure, because the GUI is very intuitive.

XG use a lot of cyberoam GUI. It's less intuitive than UTM ... but if you know and love the CR GUI :-)

XG should be the successor of UTM ... sometime.

You may install a UTM/XG test system within VM and Take a look to the current versions.
There are 30 day's demo license, after a fresh install.
