Hello,

We are looking for a all-in-one firewall box with the following functions. Anyone have any recommendations:

- Good standard >100 mbit WAN firewall throughput
- SSL VPN portal style built in, support for mac and pc. a so called clientless solution, user logs in with AD account and should either be able to start a RDP session or a vpn tunnel
- support for pc and mac required for the above vpn function
- If possible the firewall should support two separate LANs on the inside, and support bandwithcontrol for each LAN (split the internet speed between two supported LANs behind the firewall with different ip subnets).

Any recommendations amongst the well known brands?

thanks,
joe

Try the Cisco small business Firewall SA520. We use them and they work very well. Cisco support has been excellent on it.

Thanks. Do you know if it supports both the vpn and bandwith control scenarios?

should mention we need the SSL VPN tunnels to be at approx 5 concurrent from start, with option to grow.

Hi,

I believe that a Cisco ASA 5512-X would fit the bill.

It has 6 Gigabit interfaces, 500Mbps real-world firewall throughput, SSL as well as DTLS, IPSEC, L2TP VPNs, supports VPN portals and has QOS for bandwidth control.

AnyConnect Windows and MAC clients available for VPN termination using IPSEC (250 peers out of the box) - use AnyConnect Essentials.

AnyConnect Premium licences are required to unlock full SSL features including portal etc. Available in ranges of licences (has 2 concurrent SSL bundled) for upgrading to 10, 25, 50 etc.

More information here:

Thanks! Is there any cheaper model that has anyconnect premium and QoS such as this one?

ASA 5505 series does not?

Hi,

I don't think the 5505 does but a 5510 might:

That includes 100 SSL licences - best to contact the vendor to make sure that one does everything you need it to.
