Recommandations for firewall virtual appliance?
Posted on 2010-11-12
We'd like to move away from our Sonicwall, and get in to something that can be virtualized to eliminate the hardware appliance. Does anyone have a recommendation in this regard?
It will be a VM with 3 NICs - 2x WAN (redundant, but not load balanced) and 1x LAN.
Checkpoint is out of our price range, so we are left with:
Forefront TMG (donated because we are nonprofit)
The general populous seems to think having an MS box connected directly to the internet is a horrible idea, but I have yet to see any recorded evidence of ISA/TMG being problematic. Anybody else?
