    Moved to General Security.
    What about ISA server (or Forefront TMG in near future), or Cisco ASA, or Juniper or Check Point?
    So what are the requirements?

      Juniper!

      The SSG140 has similar specs to 3060 so you'll want to start with the SSG320

      We really need specs to tell you more. Whats wrong with the 3060?

        Have you been happy with the SonicWall? Is it lacking any features that you now want in a firewall?

          Why the change??

          We use a range of Sonicwall appliances here from TZ170, TZ190, 3060. 4060 and they do the job we expect them to do.

            We need waaaaay more info to help you out. Things like, do you need VPN on the firewall, do you need reporting, intrusion detection, point to point VPN etc. and etc.. Tell us what your requirements list is (you did make one, didn't you? ) and we'll be better able to suggest products to you. Incidentally, the 3060 is what one of my workplaces uses (although I think we just switched to a 5000 series) and it never gave us any grief. But that's not saying much in your case since we know nothing of what you want out of it.

              TZ170 190 210 are your SMB/Soho type devices. They all come with either standard or enhanced OS depending on what licenses and add ons you have bought. As the models go up you get more features appliance wise such as integrated SSL-VPN's for virtual office or hardware failover. This chap should look at the Sonicwall NSA E class series. The 3060 is an enterprise class firewall but the OS itself is fairly standard depending on the hardware constraints from one to the next. If i was him id stick with Sonicwall they do a fantastic,cheaper and far more comprehensive job than any Cisco equivalent and that includes PIX/ASA. Sonicwalls dont get enough love in the enterprise because people automatically think Cisco.

                Sonicwalls do that out of the box. Enhanced OS includes licenses for Viewpoint as well as a Global VPN client and box to box VPN capability. The UTM also includes IDS AV and email scanning at the gateway amongst a host of other security features.
