Looking to get a new firewall for a 12 user office. Considering Barracuda for the web filter appliance and wondering if I should choose Barracuda for the firewall also?
I have never used a Barracuda firewall as sonicwall is my only limited experience and I am trying to decide between a Barracuda, Sonicwall or Cisco Firewall.
I have zero Cisco firewall experience. I do like the GUI advantage of any model and do not like CLI or similar.
The one thing I do not like about sonicwall is support calls are Given to Forgein language engineers and the language barrier makes solving problems more difficult for me.
I know Barracuda has US support and I think Cisco does also for the most part.
The office currently uses Cisco small buisness series Switches and we plan a VOIP deployment soon but brand has not been decided yet.
Office has a single WAN connection of Comcast buisness class at the moment but we would wand DSL as a second WAN / Failover / Backup in the near future.
We would want IP Sec and SSL VPN Capacity primarily for remote management and the occasional doctor connetion from home after hours for patient emergencies.
Thoughts or Opinions?
