    My 10/100 Catalyst switch has SNMPv3. Only authentication and not privacy, but still it's End-Of-Support and has this capability.

    @Cyberzeus the issue is that firewalls are participating in networking and need to be able to communicate routes as edge devices. The vast majority of installations of firewalls like the Sophos XG is as the primary edge router. The lines between router, firewall, and switch are blurry. There's nothing wrong with consolidating this equipment.

    There is definitely something wrong with how the majority of firewalls participate in network services like routing though. Having the routing protocols BGP and OSPF together on a device should be default imply that things like Loopback interfaces are available.

    Loopback interfaces are extremely useful for device management and monitoring as well as iBGP. With the advent of Azure Stack and private clouds having robust BGP functionality should really just be the default these days.
