Firewall recommendations

 I am looking for some recommendation for a firewall or ISA that will be installed at our Head office

1. We have a HO (which has got internal and external facing) servers and need to isolate the servers by putting it on a DMZ. We also have an Altiris Deployment server that connects to all our remote sites and need to protect that as well.
2. This device will only be used as the second firewall or ISA to protect the HO from the remote sites and provide some sort of content filtering and web filtering to HO.
3. There is a nokia firewall installed the gateway firewall (managed by ISP) and all our external traffic are going thorugh this firewall
4. HO has got around 50 users and 6 servers and few laptops and wireless network and a 10 mb line

     Can some one recommend a cost effective solution to achieve all the above ?

    I would suggest to take a look at the SSG series of firewalls from Juniper ( These series are new hardware enhanced firewalls from Juniper.


    Accepted Solution

    We found ISA is a feasible solution since we need to protect the HO from the internal sites. thanks for your input.
