No it doesn't have AV and SPam filter. Software solutions are best for AV and Spam Filter.

Take a look at the Cisco ASA devices (http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6120/index.html).  They have the SSM modules which you can get for IPS (Intrusion Prevention), Anti-X (antivirus and spam), and a couple others.  The Anti-X version uses TrendMicro for the pattern updates for both spam and viruses.

I have installed several ASA5510s with the Anti-X SSM and have been really impressed with them, definitely worth a look.

I don't remember exactly, but I believe the ASA5510 with the Anti-X is around $4000.

Sonicwall 2040 for mid-to-large organization, Sonicwall TZ170 for smaller, both have an extensive array of options including AV, spam, etc.  Good reporting options with Viewpoint, too.

Take a look at Juniper Netscreen Firewalls as well (Builtin features are, firewall + DeepInspection (IPS)+AV+SPAMFilter and so on.


If you look at www.juniper.net you could find a lot of varieties of boxes that will fit your requirement. The new SSG series of firewalls beat Cisco's ASA in numerous ways (Check out the datasheet of both of them).

Cheers,
Rajesh

Best of all is PIX firewall, keep in mind that if you have a product that makes everything it will make everything poorly.... i recomend you to analize different products for single taks (firewalling, antispam, antivirus) they will make things better. it's just a matter of integration (most of the time very easy to do it if you know how)

go to www.fortiwall.com

have a look at fortiguard products, low cost allinclusive solutions and amongst the best that i have worked with including symantec, pix, juniper, etc.

has everything you are looking and has possibly the best performance out of all the products i have looked at. the virus scanning and IPS has the lowest impact on performance of the solution over any of the products.
