Firewall Hardware / UTM for SBS 2011 Dual Wan

EE,

Building SBS 2011 currently moving from SBS 2003 (where a hardware firewall seemed less essential).

Anyway, I am currently using a DrayTek Vigor 2910 to deal with 2 ADSL connections (running over 2 Netgear ADSL routers).

The DrayTek does have a firewall, but no AV, Malware etc. etc.

So looking for suggestions to incorporate a hardware firewall with dual WAN that’s also not overkill for a small business (25 user), and reason in price (hopefully).

Thanks,

Joe

my recommendation is the Calyptix AccessEnforcer.  Very easy to setup and manage.  Does UTM and integrates with Active Directory

Veyr interesting, seems liek all that i want.

Have emailed for a price (& shipping to UK) as there seems to be no mention of them on their website.

Couldn't see your location in mobile version.  Not sure they ship to UK.  You may have to look at sonicwall tz210...not as easy in my opinion

Thanks for your comments, the Calyptix does look good.

Sonicwall would have to be the NSA series, as the TZ doesnt include dual wan. Looking at £1000, first yr, then £250-350 thereafter.

I am being a bit deluded in think it was going to be £500 ish?

The tz210 will do dual wan.  One of my customers has one..support can help set up...yes even the Calyptix runs 1000 USD, but its all inclusive...sonicwall makes you pay for each feature

I recomend an TZ210, because it is realy flexible and also easy to setup. Integrate well with AD DS and you can add additional services like AV, IDP, Contentfilter or SSL VPN. We use it by many customers and they work great. You can set different Zones for more Security, and monitor it with PRTG or WhatsUp Gold. The TZ support DUAL WAN, actualy you can add even more than only two of it.
