    Question Firewall

    Dear All,

    We are looking to move away from Smoothwall as our UTM, and go to perhaps Palo Alto, or perhaps Lightspeed for the filter, and a separate firewall. But how do you do it? What is everyone else using???

    Any comments or recommendations welcome!

    Ben.

    Using PFsense here for a firewall, using Squid & Dansguardian as a content filter.

    We have had various problems that were never satisfactorily resolved by the support team despite long calls. Authentication issues, a firewall that was not as good as our five + year old Sonicwall, problems with reporting and the time it took to produce any. A few other niggles and issues, and we have had enough.

    Just bought a Palo, not cheap in comparison to some others but you get so much control and visibility I'd say it's worth it
