How many users are we talking about? Feature sets ? VPN ? Application Inspection ? etc etc.

Pix 506 costs you around 600 dollars and it does a pretty good job. You can look at www.cisco.com to see the feature set offered for PIX.

Cheers,
Rajesh

I'm only familiar with Cisco Firewalls and they do a pretty good job.

Check out the data sheets here and see the one that fits your requirement;

If you want a proxy server as well then ISA server is well worth a look. Still one of the best firewalls on the market to boot. The ISa2006 beta version is available for a 6 month trial period from the MS site.

Sidewinder is one of (if not the ) top of the line FW for enterprise.  And you pay for it.

and juniper and cisco are both very good fw/vpn solutions.

Well, Cisco Firewalls are good choice and also one made by D-link .All of them are under my budget. So I think either Cisco or D-link can be my final decision.

Thanks

rsivanandanCommented:
If Cisco firewall is within your budget then I would suggest you to go for it because it is an industry standard firewall with many feature sets; also on the other front;

1. Support is great. Cisco TAC and Cisco's online reference is an ocean.

2. If you just look at this site, you can see there are so many PIX experts who will almost solve all your queries.

Then for business quality PIX is much better than Dlink.

Cheers,
Rajesh

Juniper's also within your budget. And as you can see from here pix has many problems and experts *duck*:)
