need a firewall that can monitor external bandwidth

Hi I run a small network of about 20 pcs, and have had a problem with high band width due to virus or intrusion. I need a firewall that can monitor external traffic on each client pc and to send alerts when at a certain level of bandwidth has been reached any ideas on which firewall do this Cheers

You can try 3com superstack firewalls. It will monitor each ip address in your organization and keep a log of ports and services used the most. You can also set the firewall to send you e-mail logs.

I like SonicWall firewalls. Many SonicWall firewalls come with a license for SonicWall Viewpoint, which is very good at looking at what sites each computer is accessing. I run the SonicWall 4060 using Viewpoint and the interface is very easy to use and the reporting is even better. Only thing with that is that you have to create a user for each person and they have to log into the firewall when they open IE. Kinda of annoying, but you can set it to a max of 99 minutes of internet inactivity before it will ask again. The sonicwall also offers the Content filtering, which allows you to restict sites by genre.

I believe GNAT box and Sidewinder also do this.

Despite its humble beginnings, phishing has come a long way since those first crudely constructed emails. Today, phishing sites can appear and disappear in the length of a coffee break, and it takes more than a little know-how to keep your clients secure.

Tackle projects and never again get stuck behind a technical roadblock.
