I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

FortiGate 100 Series is good if you have budget


But if you have time then you can create free firewall on AMD 8 core processor with 16 gb ram PC with two NIC cards.

Free firewalls are followings:-
1) IP cop
2) pfsense
3)  smooth wall

"Best" is rather subjective.

What do you mean by "Active Standby"?

A pair Cisco ASA 5505's with a 50 user license will meet your requirements.

Active Standby means , 1 firewall is active & the 2nd firewall will be passive which means in case if the primary firewall fails  the secondary firewall takes over

a couple pfSense boxes can implement takeover out of the box
