Based on the note from Russ the speed of the firewall with all the options turned on is an issue. We would like to have some protection turned on internaly (to the servers in the DMZ) as well as on the external side in case people pick up viruses and bring them in (we have a lot of people with laptops). We aslo don't want the network running at a crawl!
Has anyone done speed tests on the routers with the options on? Or, are there reviews or information from the suppliers?
The Data point from Russ is; the Fortigate 60 would run about 50Mbps IPS and up to around 8 to 10Mbps AV, give or take depending on the traffic and the configuration.
