Corporate Firewall Recommendations
I come from a Pix/Checkpoint background, and my current client can't swallow the price of these units and associated software annual fees.
So, this puts me in a pickle, whats the best bang for their buck, something I can put in and manage through some sort of GUI, is a hardware based solution, and is cheaper than a PIX/Checkpoint?
I'm hunting in the mid range of hardware firewalls, not personal firewalls or sohos, but firewalls that will let me to content filtering, IPSEC vpn tunnels, sysloging, etc.
I looked on the web for firewall reviews, but with the advent of the personal firewall, it's hard to wade through all the reviews for those to find the middle of the road devices.
Any recommendations on web sites that independently review and rate corporate firewalls? Any personal recommendations?
