    Your best bet is to keep is short but as useful as possible.

    Explain the basic role of a firewall and the difference between hardware and software firewalls.

    Then explain the various terms connected with firewalls, such as SPI, NAT, DMZ, Proxy, Dual-Homed etc.

    You could also add in that many firewalls also have VPN systems integrated into them.

    If you have experience with Cisco and Sonicwall then add in a couple of sentences about them, if you haven't used them then avoid making it sound like you have.

    If you have used, for example, Sonicwall firewalls in the past, I would talk about the specific advantages of a Sonicwall firewall over other hardware firewalls.

    If you need anymore help or specific advice (especially with Sonicwall or Watchguard firewalls), then let me know.
