VRRP is one routing protocol constantly used in the industry for configure redundancy in final customer networks, will be really important to Sophos customers of XG Firewall (as the latest product of this kind) be able to configure this, as many other routing devices worldwide and one directly competitor on UTM as Fortinet.
If XG's supported vrrp, I'd be able to use them a lot more frequently for customers sites. As it stands now, I primarily use Juniper SRX or Ubiquiti EdgeRouter units, and I'm implementing XG's as virtual appliances "off to the side" when we need to do web filtering and such. The featureset on the XG's is nice, though, and I'd definitely use them more for actual layer3 gateway devices if they supported vrrp.

Hi, it' urgent to have this Feature like Cisco ASA. The ASA have it with HSRP.

@Sophos Development Team - When can we expect VRRP on XG, or between the same and or different XG models? FortiNet is on speed with this feature and I've used it many times on Forti before. It really came in handy with different scenarios.
