Generally it is capacity, ease of configuration and security "hardness."

Firewall Selection

by BFilmFan In reply to spi

The questions I would be asking are:

How many users will the device support?

How easy is it to configure?

How much does it cost?

Can I train someone at the client site to operate the firewall or will they be calling me everytime they need a configuration change?

Is this a hardware or software solution?

Are updates available online?

Does the manufacturer offer technical support that doesn't require me to speak Mandarin or Cantonese to someone living in a shack on the side of a mountain in Tibet?
