Cisco Firewall/VPN recomendation
Posted on 2004-03-23
Hi, my companies ISP manages all packets that are sent in/out of our network using a router and firewall which they have configured and manage themselves.
We have decided to manage all our packets ourselves, so that our ISP sends all packets to us and we decide what happens to them.
I have been looking at some cisco products.
What we are mainly concerned about is security and we need VPN.
1. Would a Cisco PIX Firewall do the job.
2. Do i need a router (Im pretty sure I do)
3. Can I configure VPN using the PIX firewall or do I configure this in a router only.
4. Are the Cisco Routers with built-in firewalls anygood eg CISCO1720-VPN-M/K9.
Any other suggestions that may be helpfull would greatly be appreciated.
Apologies for the amount of points for this question, it should have more. I have the max that I have left :)
Thanks in advance
