Re: [PLUG] Firewall/UTM recommendations?

Fortinet FortiGate 50b or FortiWiFi 50b would fit.  Purchase the "bundle" to get all the UTM features like gateway anti-virus, URL & Content filtering etc.  Company was founded by some of the original Netscreen guys.  Once Netscreen was sold to Juniper for $4 billion they started Fortinet to build a next generation UTM from the ground up.

Subject: [PLUG] Firewall/UTM recommendations?

Hey PLUG'ers,

I'm looking for a firewall/UTM solution to replace my company's old PIX firewall and was hoping to get some advice from the group. In the past I've used Astaro's Security Gateway which proved to be a stable and feature-full device. The network parameters include about 10 users, hosting of an email server, and a T1 WAN link (soon to be 3Mb/s; up from 1.5Mb). Personally, I'd prefer something with a web GUI but if someone can convince me why I should really learn IOS or some other command line solution I'll definitely take it under consideration. The thing I liked about the Astaro products is that it will likely play nice with our Linux environment since it allowed for things like log forwarding, openVPN connections, and LDAP authentication.

Anyways, thanks in advance for the input!
