HI, network gurus:
I got a new project from my boss to set up firewall for our company. We have two sites, one is with 50 employees and the other is wit 20 users. Both sites use pure data T1 from Telepacific. I will install firewall applicance behind their white Airtran gateway. I have the following questions need your attention.
1. Which brand should I use? I have a budget of $2800 for HQ and $1500 for the small site. Do I need choose Sonicwall or juniper network. I only know these two brands are big brand.
2. For HQ, some sales recommend sonicwall NSA 2400 totalsecure or Juniper Networks SSG320M Appliance; which one is better or some other suggestions.
3. for the remote site, which one is good? Juniper Networks SSG20 Appliance or SonicWALL NSA 240 Firewall Appliance.
4. Any suggestion for the installation progress. I never installed firewall before. thank you.
