    Enterprise Firewalls

    We're starting to look into a replacement for our current firewalls. We're using borderware appliances right now because we need to have an EAL 4 certified firewall for some functions.

    Borderware are discontinuing support for our gear in the next year or 2 and the support company for this country is dissociating from Borderware soon, we'll still be supported but it will be direct with Canada.

    We'll need at least 4 new appliances 1 of which needs to be EAL4+.

    So looking ahead what companies have produced enterprise class firewalls that have impressed you? Or have you seen any promising technologies in the end stages of develpment.

    Checkpoint FW-1 and Cisco PIX are probably the most used.. Both have their pros and cons.

    You cant go wrong with Cisco PIX, but an interesting alternative to look at is the Fortinet Fortigate. They have a a variety of firewall appliances for anyone from SOHO to ISP. What makes them cool, IMO, is that they also perform real-time virus scanning and IDS. Check out their enterprise line here http://www.fortinet.com/products/enterprise.html
