PfSense report + Fortinet FortiGate (114) + pfSense (32) + Cisco ASA Firewall (82) + Cisco Firepower NGFW Firewall (36) + Check Point NGFW (66) + Sophos XG (64) + Kerio Control (31) + Palo Alto Networks NG Firewalls (60) + Palo Alto Networks VM-Series (15) + SonicWall TZ (24) + Palo Alto Networks K2-Series (12.

Sophos is a jaw-dropping UTM, and its free home version license is surprisingly generous. The feature set and web-based GUI easily place it up there with my other 2 top UTM choices-Untangle and PFSense, so it's certainly worth a try-out. My criticisms are few and admittedly strict. I'm using a Watchguard XTM 5, which use the same settings for the LCDproc for the Sophos UTM 220 on pfSense, but i can't find it in OPNsense. Thanks in advance. On the other hand, the top reviewer of Sophos UTM writes 'Great web and email filtering with reasonable pricing'. PfSense is most compared with OPNsense, Fortinet FortiGate, Untangle NG Firewall, Sophos XG and SonicWall TZ, whereas Sophos UTM is most compared with Fortinet FortiGate, Sophos XG, OPNsense, Untangle NG Firewall and Kerio Control. OPNsense is ranked 18th in Firewalls with 10 reviews while Sophos Cyberoam UTM is ranked 7th in Unified Threat Management (UTM) with 13 reviews. OPNsense is rated 8.4, while Sophos Cyberoam UTM is rated 7.0. The top reviewer of OPNsense writes 'Has good performance but I want to see a friendlier user interface'.
