  • Firewall solution

    Hi,

    I am looking for a Firewall solution which can be extended to a cluster (or insalled as from the start).

    It will be installed in our Office.

    approximately 50-60 users which part of them will be working from home daily or on weekends. Therefor 50-60 users must have VPN access.

    Your input is appreciated.

    Thanks

        And on the Windows side?

        I am thinking Forefront TMG as a possible solution

          I was thinking more of:

          CheckPoint or SBox or something like them

            Check Point (costly though but very good), Microsoft TMG, Juniper, Cisco ASA can easily handle your current requirement.

              Re: Firewall solution

              From your experience, what Firewall is better for Office usage, which is more secure ? which one can be installed easily as a stand alone and as a cluster ?

              which one will be cheaper when the support or license renew is due ?

              Thanks

                It depends all on the usage and the requirements. An ASA 5505 can be really cheap if it fits your needs.
                All the Firewall options I listed are great devices and can run in either standalone as well as clustered.
                I worked a lot with CheckPoint and Cisco ASA and Microsoft ISA (ancestor for TMG) and a little bit of Juniper and we can only advice based on the needs.

                  I'll add SonicWALL to the list.

                    Re: Firewall solution

                    some of the larger scale Fortigates can probably do what you need
                    I've worked on environments where they have Fortinet200s, in Active/Passive configurations etc
                    Please do show your appreciation to those who assist you by leaving Rep Point https://www.petri.com/forums/core/im.../icon_beer.gif

                      What are the requirements for your firewall???

                      You could implement a SonicWALL NSA240 with High Availability enabled which will give you Active/Passive setup.

                      It also has an inbuilt SSL VPN appliance which actually works pretty good. You can of course use the VPN client software which is pretty easilly configured.

                      You'll get more information here
