We have recently switched from Symantec to Sophos Endpoint Security 9.5. We have created our groups (depending on workstations, locations, servers, etc..) and each groups is assigned a respective policy for Scanning, Anti-Virus, HIPS, Firewall, Tamper Protection, and Updating.

Now, we want to utilize the Sophos firewall in conjuction to our Watchguard Firebox Firewall. However, when the firewall is enabled it blocks everything and we spend days (literally) adding exceptions for every little thing. (in-house Apps, Internet, Citrix, etc..) but we don't want to disable it (because we want to use it).

My question is this. Is anyone here Sophos certified or at least utilize a version of Sophos/Sophos Management Console? We are looking for a template (premade) that we can work off of(that comes with many corporate rules & allowances already added)that differs from the built-in default template we're currently using. We did plan on justs deploying to my workstation and noting the manual adds but like I stated earlier it was 2 days and I was still adding them continuosly.

Any help would be appreciated.
