I am looking for complete security solution at my gateway. But I am not able to find out the one which can provide complete security to my organization.  There are so many firewalls and security solutions available in the market. Some are ASIC based and some are not. My organization is medium level organization. I am looking for a single box solution. Help me to find one.
Thanks and regards.

Great link:

Nobody can tell you the specific product that is best for you just from the information you have provided.

Bottom line: Know your budget, know what you need to protect (value), and how much you need to spend to protect it. Know your own skill sets and your staff's skill sets and steer toward the products that work within those skills.

There isn't such a thing as a complete, single-box security solution at your perimeter !
You have to take into account firewalling, access-control, authentication, malware / spyware detection, SMTP AV, WWW AV, content control....   this is all too much for one box, and no one solution out there will give you 100% protection against this.
However, I would take a look at the Fortinet product range for your sort of sized organisation, and look at other solutions for host and mail anti-virus.
