I'm looking for an Internet load balancer, web filter, and VPN appliance(s).

I currently have multiple Internet connections and would like the load balancer to spread Internet requests across my current 3 Internet connections (we could possibly add more in the future).

I'm also looking for a web filter and VPN appliance. I prefer all 3 of these services to be contained in one box with a high availability option but would entertain multiple boxes per function.

I also prefer to stay away from SonicWall and Barracuda. Our lead engineer has had bad experiences with both of those companies lately. Personally, I've never had anything negative to say about Barracuda- but it really should be something else.

Take a look at Draytek's range of Routers:

Http://www.draytek.com

They have routers supporting multiple WAN connections and also do offer web filtering and VPN within one box. We've been using Draytek routers for over 10 years and have found them very suitable for a range of business sizes and configurations.
