“Buying new technology is always a leap of faith. From day one, Sophos UTM has always just worked. It does just what we want it to do.”
Alistair Birch, Senior Network Analyst, EP Barrus

Sector: Wholesale
Location: Bicester, UK
Environment: Office with servers and 110 computers, plus the remote access requirement.
Solution: Sophos UTM 320 with UTM Network Protection,
UTM Email Protection and UTM Web Protection

Business Challenge

  • EP Barrus’ Checkpoint firewall and Websense web filter needed replacing and they decided to look for a new solution.
  • With limited IT resources it was important to find a self-sufficient management application they could trust.
  • They first looked at Juniper but found it to be cost prohibitive,

Technology solution

  • Sophos UTM Network Protection was set up to conduct packet filtering, Sophos UTM Email Protection handled spam filtering and Sophos UTM Web Protection was used for web content filtering.
  • Birch and his colleagues configured both units with some help from their service provider.

Business results

  • The IT team has saved significant time and effort. They rarely log onto the Sophos UTM 320 Appliance and it runs without IT intervention.
  • Productivity is enhanced thanks to web content filtering and the ability to give defined groups appropriate internet access.
