Firewall Recommendation

By matthewballou ·
Hello all,
Looking at getting a new firewall for our 150 person company. We currently are behind an Intel Lan Rover Gateway Plus. However, that system has been discontinued, to some extent by Intel. We really need a system that does NAT and will allow VPN Clients through the NAT to our customers Cisco PIX/Nortel firewalls. We also host some low use Websites (internal) which have firewall rules to allow access only from certain IP's. Anyway, have looked at Cisco PIX 515, Watchguard Firebox 1000AND MS ISA server. Looking for something that would be 6K or less.

One more thing

by matthewballou In reply to Firewall Recommendation

I do like the MS ISA server and Watchguard Firebox 1000, but I have yet to see if either one can handle what we are trying to do.

Take a look at the Netscreen products ( They offer a nice device that will support all you have mentioned at a very economical price and it is a powerful firewall. Have worked with the NS devices for three years.

PIX is the way to go

by RichjTech In reply to Sonice Wall

I manage a few small - medium sized client sites. (from 100 - 1000 or so users) The smaller PIX boxes are great. They can do all you mentioned depending on the bundle you buy. Once it is setup, you can essentially forget about it. Solid and not too expensive. ---Richj
