FortiGate. Fortinet is in Gartner Leader Magic Quadrant (MQ).
Sophos is in Niche Player Quadrant if I remember right.
You can never go wrong picking a vendor in the Gartner Leader MQ. Show the Gartner MQ to your leadership to get them on board too.
If I look at it only from the point of view of analytics and performance, I lean towards Fortinet, but if I look at it at the service level and with the possibility of being part of an even larger project, this is when I don't see competitors for Fortinet and I mean the component. of after-sales services, the local presence in my country has come from less to more, which makes the difference when choosing a partner to work with.
A week ago I lost my data through the malware from which I failed to recover as the file got corrupted.
Now, I want to work with a firewall and so am looking for suggestions on whether I should purchase Cisco Firepower or Sophos XG. Which one is a good match for an SMB? What would you recommend?
