Proxy + Firewall appliance

Dear All,

We are a small school and we are looking for a appliance solution which provides:
1- Firewall
2- Proxy/cash/web filters services
3- I can connect two internet lines to the appliance for more speed and redundancy
4- Reasonable price :)

do you have something like this ?

Hi,

If you have vmware you can use Artica proxy solution, the paid version gives you all those features and even much more and is based on squid proxy, gives firewall, web filter, hotspot services, access control and more.. check the features..
 I work with the free version which is excellent for education (university)
you can also install it on a stand alone machine instead of using appliance, this solution is very cheap and flexible.
if you want to spend more money you can always use Fortigate from fontinet - see

the appliance costs money and yearly subscription and support, Artica will cost too, but much less..
 to your consideration..
post back any questions you have..
