    Post How to choose a firewall

    Three basic types of firewalls are available for you to choose from:

    • Software firewalls
    • Hardware routers
    • Wireless routers


    To determine which type of firewall is best for you, answer these questions and record your answers:
    • How many computers will use the firewall?
    • What operating system do you use? (This might be a version of Microsoft Windows, Apple Macintosh, or Linux.)


    Nice read at Microsoft.

    Default How to choose a firewall

    Firewalls are critical to your network security, and everybody is supposed to have one.
    Redundant Architecture
    * Dual power supply
    * RAID Disk or Solid State
    * WAN Failover and balancing
    * High Available (unit to unit)
    failover (2 units)
    * Network Management tools and logs
    * Bandwidth monitoring
    * Traffic shaping
    * Basic logs and reporting

    Buy a router with a NAT/SPI Firewall
    and
    forget about software firewalls.
