I've been using F-Secure 2005 since year 2005 and then upgraded to version 2007. Now have 2009. This protection tool never let me down. I highly recommend it. We are using their server solutions on our servers, threat attacks? - no to us.

No 'Software' firewall can be considered best under any circumstances and I would never load one on a server.
Even the cheapest 'Hardware' firewall will give you more protection and less interference than any of the 'add-on' applications from any of the security suites.

Your security application should give you Anti-virus and Anti-spyware protection - and that is all. I have found the the various 'combo-suites' try to do too much and too often simply interfere with the basic function of the host machine.

Any of the major vendor applications (AVAST, Nod32, McAfee, etc) will give you what you need - with the caveat of "anything but Symantec/Norton".
