We are a hosting company that are looking for a new firewall solution because our current Symantec Enterprise Firewall can't handle the traffic.
Our current traffic is never over 10Mb/10Mb but there is a large number of connections (http/https (smtp, dns)) which apparently is the problem for our current firewall
Our demands is high availability and high performance (two firewalls in HA mode).
Our supplier has sent us an offer for three different solution.2x Checkpoint VPN-1 PRO on Crossbeam C10 in HA setup 2x Sonicwall 4100 in HA setup 2x Symantec Gateway Security 5640 in HA setup.
Sonicwall is in price terms the most attractive product but what about performance and security.
It's difficult to compare them based on fact sheets, so I hope that I can get some help from you.
Best regards Claus Pedersen
