I need some recommendations and solutions for a company that has the following basic network and users:
2 - T-1's
Current Config: ISA Server
I really would like to get away from the ISA server and propose a requisition for something like what I have used in the past like a Cisco PIX......which I know has since been replaced by another product line from Cisco and basically need some advice on what models, etc, for something like this. It would be nice to be able to make use of hte Cisco VPN client as right now the current VPN solution is the Microsoft Native RRAS solution. Other considerations would be firewall obviously, and standard port forwarding like 80, 25.
I need something to basically justifiy why I would want an appliance versus ISA server but my previous experience has been with the Cisco PIX 515 series Firewall Appliances which as you know are ancient history so what would be a good consideration to support this effort?
Also can anyone come up with reasoning for why I should do an appliance versus ISA Server? I have my own opinions but would like to hear from others. I'll close out this and award points by end of the day for recommendations.
Thanks so much!!!
