We're looking for a firewall that can handle 50mbps (generated by max. 2000

Any suggestions? - Thx in advance!

Clavister Security Gateways with the Content Filtering subscription
should do fine cause of its high robust core, that's why Clavister
calls it xUTM cause you should not need to blow down performance just
by activating application layer protection like too many security
products do. Clavister is not based on any OS , that's why it's

There are many UTM which support 50mbps with Contenet filtering
1. Fortinet FortiGate 60 Series
2. Firebox(R) X5500e
3.  SonicWALL PRO 2040 Firewall

But if u are looking for a heavy firewall then you should choose 1
from below
1. Cisco ASA 5500
2. Juniper Netscreen SSG 140

Do you know the FG60B from a "real-world-situation"?
For 50mbps created by max 2000users i got a recommendation of a FB1000A,
what seems to be a bit of an overkill to me.

Maybe FB-200A or FB-300A?
Or waiting for the FB-100B? ;-)

Thank you!

Re: Contentfilter
Ya i know the real situation and i know Fortinet60 Series is a bit low
end model now..
Bit practically i have used FortiGate-300A with 150 users and it was
working awesome that time. but as users increased  we moved to ASA

I hope u demo a small model then FB1000A  with your requirements
