Wanted to get some firsthand input on solutions from both these vendors and how seamless the transition from TMG was.
Sophos: Has anyone transitioned/migrated on to the new Sophos XG Platform (a combination of the Astaro and Cyberoam) yet, if so are all the TMG replacement technologies still present on the new platform? Are we better off sticking to the current tried and true UTM 9 offering or jump onboard to the brand-new XG Platform?
Also how is the overall effectiveness of Sophos as NGFW. The results I saw from a couple of security lab reports is a bit concerning?
Fortinet: Is a FortiWeb (appliance or VM) absolutely required on top of a FortiGate Firewall for Reverse Proxy services for OWA, SharePoint, Terminal Services Gateway, etc; Inbound/Outbound SSL Bridging & Inspection, Web Proxy, single sign on user authentication(AD integration), etc... Are there any major TMG feature gaps missing from the Fortinet’s?
How easy or difficult was the transition with the Fortinet solution? Is their tech support as bad as I’ve read on a few threads?
