Advice On Firewall
Posted on 2014-07-17
We are in the process of upgrading our server, computers, etc.
I noticed that the current firewall we use (SnapGear/McAfee 560) is EOL. I am curious as to what everyone recommends for firewalls?
We have a pretty basic setup with the SG560...Some rules to block/allow certain connections but that's about it.
I know it CAN do VPN and many other things but we just have not utilized it to its fullest.
Going forward - I want to know what would be the best solution for us. We are thinking of switching to a new Firewall that would have tech support available. We are purchasing a new Dell server and they recommend SonicWall
Can anyone give me advice on this? It would be nice to be able to VPN into our network as well as create rules for internet surfing (not sure if all/no firewalls have this feature).
The cheapest SonicWall on Dell's website (when configuring a new server) is the TZ 205. Would this be "easy" to setup like the SG560 is?
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
