Firewall recommendation needed (appliance)
Posted on 2006-04-12
I need a hardware firewall that:
1. Can support 2 WAN connections (1 cable, 30mbps, and 1 DSL) without a throughput slowdown
2. VPN connectivity that is easy to install, rock-solid reliable, and doesn't depend on anyhtign else (like integration with windows vpn or something)
3. Great reporting for intrusion attempts, protection, and traffic flow
I am looking at a sonicwall pro 3060, but it'll cost $5000 (firewall+install)+ $1500 per year with upgrades. I was looking to spend about $4000 max with little or no maintenence fees.
