Sophos xg vs utm
The Sophos XG and Utm are two security software solutions that are used by many institutions. There are many similarities between the products, but there are also some important differences that should be discussed further. ## Installation Installation of the XG is easy because it is a single software solution, and subsequent updating of the product is also seamless. The Utm, on the other hand, requires installing a new version of its cloud component along with each new update of its on-premise component. The benefit of this approach is that each component can be updated separately if one is not compatible after an update. ## Bandwidth Utm uses a significant amount more bandwidth as compared to Xg due to more frequent packet transmissions. Utm also require authentication not just between user and server, but also between client and cloud. ## Hardware Utm requires additional hardware to improve performance and reliability.
