Hi there,
I would like to buy a firewall.  Here is what I need in a firewall:
-integration with windows AD
-IPS, antivirus, antispam, application control and P2P (like kazza, limewire and other advanced apps, facebook,yahoo, etc etc etc)
-Real time view of logs
-network security, websecurity
-http filtering on the basis of users/groups
which one is the best watchguard, sonic wall, checkpoint or any other.  I guess cisco NME IPS K9 would not give me app filtering like facebook etc on the basis of users?
Should be cheap but performance wise about 600,000 concurrent connections.  Advice please.

Checkpoint, Websense, Ironport, and Microsoft TMG. Ironport for spam filtering. Checkpoint as Firewall with IPS. TMG as a forward/reverse proxy integrated with Websense placed behind the Checkpoint firewall.

Sonic Wall and Juniper also are great appliances that scale well.

If application layer control is your thing check out meraki (I probably lean toward sonicwall though for all the other reasons)

In other similar questions here the consensus seems to be Sonicwall. Have installed many of them and they do everything you ask for and more. Reasonable price and easy to configure using wizards and the web interface.

If you provide more info about your site (# users, web or other servers, special needs etc) I can provide a model recommendation.
