Goodbye Microsoft Forefront TMG - Hello Sophos UTM

July 2013

Following Microsoft’s announcement to retire the Forefront Threat Management Gateway, many of our customers are looking for alternatives.

Although the requirements differ from one business to another, we wanted to take this opportunity to outline the key features and functionalities critical to most businesses when considering a replacement threat management firewall and recommend an affordable, easy to use and powerful solution for you to consider.

Things to consider:

  • Firewall
  • HTTPS proxy
  • Web Proxy
  • Site to Site VPN
  • Remote access for remote workers
  • Load balancing
  • High Availability support

Sophos Unified Threat Management is a strong replacement.

Sophos UTM allows you to manage all your IT security from a single console:

  • Firewall and IPS
  • Web application firewall
  • Mail security
  • Web security and filtering
  • Wireless management and security
  • Security for remote offices
