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.

Sophos XG series has been replaced with new XGS series using Xstream Flow Processors. This has doubled the performance compared to previous XG models. With Sophos XGS firewall they also give cloud-based Sophos Central service free to use for managing firewalls. Central-based firewall reports are limited to 30 days with a free account.Sophos models XG 85/86/87 and XGS 87 do not support reporting. Comparing models of different vendors based on specifications may not give the most optimal result.The model should be chosen based on real usage data and what functionalities will be used since they have an impact on firewall performance:
* WAN speed
* LAN speed
* User count and traffic per user
* Servers and do you need Web server protection?
* VPN client count and traffic per user (gateway mode or split tunnel)
* IDS/IPS needed?
* Application Firewall needed?
* E-mail protection needed?
* Endpoint client used? Endpoint synchronization with firewall?
There is also a possibility to add a firewall in transparent mode to the existing network, let it collect traffic data and choose the model on actual traffic and performance data.
There is also an alternative to buying out firewall appliance - MSP (Managed Service Provider) monthly based solution. A service provider or a vendor owns the hardware and rents it out as a monthly service. This adds flexibility for the client since the firewall and license can be replaced as needed. This may happen if the user count increases faster than expected. It may also have a good ecological impact if the hardware is reused.
