Paul's Quick Tip

So here's my quick tip for selecting a Sophos Desktop Series firewall to meet your needs.  Having sold and managed literally thousands of firewalls across the world since I started in 1999, I have noticed one thing - Our browsing and data consuming habits effect a firewall's throughput.  All the tests above were performed in labs and under controlled conditions.  


I would always recommend taking the slowest speed published - in this instance something like the Threat Protection value and then dividing it by three.   This will give you, from our experience, the worst speed you will get under the heaviest load conditions, with full protection turned on.   Make sure this speed is faster than your internet connection and you will be good to go.


Example using a Sophos XGS 87

Threat Protection speed is 240 Mbps, divide this by 3 which gives you 80 Mbps.  This is the slowest we believe this firewall will run under the heaviest of loads.  Obviously if you want to turn some of the security services off, then you will make it run faster.
