    Antivirus and firewalls are 2 different products with different usages.
    Would kinda a weird comparison.

      Like Dumber said they are 2 separate things. In reality you need both at a minimum. As far as hardware firewalls, I like the Cisco ASA's. They have alot of features. Also these days an inline IPS device is almost necessary as well. As far as antivirus for clients, I have been happy with Trend Office Scan in the enterprise environment. For personal use I use Avast which I like a lot. Really like the sandbox feature it has.

      The ASA's also have an IPS module you can buy for the device as well.
