Replacement of Firewall / Independent Review Required

In reply to: Network Security

Hi,
We are in the planning phase to replace traditional CISCO ASA 5510 and Microsoft TMG Server.

We have following requirement.

This box should be capable of the FW features along with URL Filtering, Modern day IPS and the Malware Detection System.
The total no. of users @ 3 diff. sites are 175 to 200, but the future solution should be capable of catering 250 users.

We have discussed and shortlisted found following products.

SOPHUS XG330 , FORTINET FG-200D , HILLSTONE E2800 , CYBERROM CR 100ing , CISCO 5508x , CISCO 5516x.

Thanks.
What kind of firewall software we can use? Is there anything free with better quality? Will we install the software in any pc of network and manage whole network?

Any other solution except firewall software?

since we know absolutely nothing about your network

In reply to: Network Security

it could be a home network or a business network. IMO, if you are responsible for a network, you are also responsible for the security of it. You need to do whatever it takes to ensure the security of it or you could be sued, lose your job, or whatever. If you dont know what you need, you will need an expert to check out your network and tell you exactly what you to do. this is not something that can be handle in a forum.

To task your IT lead with this effort. There are no canned solution that meets everyone's requirements and here, you blocked the use of the most common tool. This means you will have to pay more than most for a solution.
