Sophos Virtualization Security requires more usage. For example, if you have a virtual service line of 100 nodes, you are unable to deploy them from the console to a particular environment.

I would like to see some new features for improving the security part of the solution. The firewall should be worked on to catch up with security.

We are unable to reliably specify bandwidth limits for particular clients, which is something that needs to be improved. Several of our clients are having problems with the current version that did not exist in the previous version. Our advice is to not upgrade to the current version until there are new patches available.

The solution would be improved if all of the advanced features were included in the SVM. If we install the full package on multiple servers then it will demand resources for each one from the host machine. For example, if we scan five systems at once then it will slow down the performance of the host, and the other VMs will be affected by this scan.

They have two deployment models for this solution. The first is the full package endpoint, on-premises solution. This gives the customer all of its security features, like the ability to lock down servers. This is a resource-heavy deployment. The second type of deployment is the SVM (Security Virtual Machine) solution. This is a virtual appliance. We install it to allow communication between all of the virtual machines and the management, also. This deployment will not give the customer all of the features available in the full package. The choice between deployment models is based on the environment, with a focus on performance. If the server is facing the internet then we do not recommend using the SVM. On the other hand, if this server has restricted access then we recommend deploying the SVM solution. Our deployment is on-premises in our hospital's data center.

We are a solution provider and this is one of the products that we implement for our customers. Some people have requirements for this type of solution, such as setting up a VPN or using a remote connection. It will give them a mechanism for authentication.

For virtualization security, the cost is approximately $50 USD per seat.

Sophos Virtualization Security is very straightforward. It's very simple to set up. It depends on the platform for how long it takes to set up. It shouldn't take more than five minutes. It should be a simple setup.
