Any other criteria other than price? i.e. number of interfaces,
interface speed, total throughput, stateful inspection, bridging/routing
Ultimately all firewalls are software, but for an "appliance" based
firewall, I like Juniper's Netscreen products. They have enterprise
features at a reasonable cost (in comparison to others). For GUI users,
the administration interface is fairly intuitive and easy to use. I
prefer the CLI, which works reasonably well.
