We use Sophos Cyberoam UTM to protect company networks from attacks from the internet and to separate internal networks into different nodes. The Intrusion Prevention system of Sophos Cyberoam UTM protects different networks from attacks from other networks. This includes the company's network or from the outside of the company's networks.

We are connected through Cyberoam so you have to pass through Cyberoam to connect to our network. The solution is on-prem. It's basically on the network.

We used it for the POC so we tried it. We used it continuously for testing purposes for four to five months.

We are using this solution for protecting our organization from threats. We use the SSL VPN, anti-spyware, anti-spam, web and application filters, and the generated logs of people who try and scan our network.

We use the solution strictly in connection with the files of internal users, such as in a case that they are using the internet and we wish to control their bandwidth or time limit.

I am using it as a firewall for getting the internet for our users. I am using CR100i, which is an old model. I am going to replace this one.

I'm using Cyberoam in close to nine locations. We are using, for example, IP sets from Kenya to Somalia, a place where we could not get MPLS connectivity. We have a secondary server in the Somalia office. I also use it from the Nairobi office to the Dubai office as the MPLS is very expensive and I need to do a backup daily. That is for the IP sec. For the VPN, we use it to access our ERP systems remotely from everywhere. Close to a hundred users use it and it has been stable.

I am using the solution mostly internally for security, a firewall and internet. We have a lot of users with many user policies. Additionally, we use it for a DOS-specific file exchange.

We use this solution to serve as a captive portal for staff to authenticate before they gain access to the network.

It is the gateway to the internet connection in our company.

We are using Cyberoam UTM as our centralized gateway and it is useful for web filtering, application filtering, anti-spam, and IPS.

We are a service provider and Sophos Cyberoam UTM is one of the security products that we have experience with, in that capacity. It is primarily used for layer three gateway protection.

Sadir Omer - PeerSpot reviewer

We are a solution provider and Sophos Cyberoam UTM is the main product that we sell. We also use it as part of our own network security solution as well. The primary use cases are setting data quotas on a per-user level, web filtering, and granting or denying access to resources. In Sri Lanka, the data is always limited, which is one of the biggest problems that we have.

Bhushan Tusuju - PeerSpot reviewer

We are using this solution for remote access to some of our devices.

Mohd Adam Haikal Adbullah - PeerSpot reviewer

The majority of it is on-premise protecting the external to internal and then we utilize the features inside the Cyberoam XG series like their IPS and their web application firewall to do the filtering as well as their proxy server inside the application control.

Robert Olsinski - PeerSpot reviewer

It is a good product, but it is being phased out and replaced with Sophos XG line. Now is the time to view other options available.

Chinyama Zama - PeerSpot reviewer

The primary use is for our firewall, for intrusion detection and prevention. Other uses include internet web filtering, application content blocking, and some VPN. We also look at bandwidth optimization. We don't want users to abuse the network.

Ersin Bostanc─▒ - PeerSpot reviewer

I use it for security, web management, content management, VPN, and site-to-site VPN. I use many features of the firewalls, like intrusion prevention system, antivirus, anti-spam, etc. I use almost every aspect of the firewalls. It has performed perfectly fine, so far.
