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.

there are many good firewall out there doing webfilter and wify. I usually go with SonicWall TZ models, the Cisco ASA, Watchguards when dealing with small businesses on a budget. Keep in mind what the business does and will do in the future though, do they expect growth,  any special apps such as voip traffic going through it, will you need ssl vpn, fail over connection, etc... that'll help you determine the model you need.

I recently deployed a SonicWall TZ 215, it goes for a bit over 1k with the security services for 3 years, just do your testing in you're bringing sip traffic in.  Watchguard XTM 26 Wirelesshave really good unit under 1k too.

Jorge I like sonicwall. Does the tz215 support HA?
jorge diazSECommented:
it provides fail over, i think HA requires a separate license.
