Is a firewall like the tlz 50 with bundled software good enough or do i need protection on each machine

Hi --

I have a small office  - 10 user - -- I am thinking of purchasing a sonicwall firewall device with the bundeld protection from trend micro.

Do i still need to purchase server and pc anti virus for each machine -- or can i just use the sonicwall handle everything.

A hardware firewall is never enough imo. At least not at an office with several employees.
You never know what kind of websites the users visiting, and unless you have some kind of "adult filter", then there is a big chance that you will get some kind of virus through the internet. But you don't need some big software to protect each computer, you could just use AVG (which is free) for the workstations.

You don't necessarily need any anti virus program for your server, because it probably won't visit all kind of weird websites etc., but it could not harm to still have it on.
