My company is lloking for an all-in-one security solution. We need also VPN capability, Anti Virus, Anti Spamming, Content Filtering, NAT support, basic roouting.

This is a three-fold question.
1) What CISCO solution is comparable in functionality to the Tipping Point X505?
2) Once a CISCO solution is chosen, how do they compare? Advantages/Disadvantages of each?
3) Which one would you recommend?

I am going to award this points to the person who selects the best functionality match and better describes the two pieces of equipment and compares them.

    A low end Cisco ASA appliance would be comparable.  
    There's no such thing as an all-in-one security solution... ;)

    Are C's the standard grading for cleanup answers now?

    There was no option to give no grade, I graded the answer I received to my question. I would like to know how are cleanup questions generally graded.
