    Cisco PIX, HP Procurve or just ISA?

    We used to be completely Cisco kit but over the past two or three years like most people have been moving to cheaper but just as good HP kit.

    Our internet connection was upgraded over the summer to 100Mbs but our current PIX only supports 10Mbs so needs upgrading.

    We need to have VPN support.

    I do not have CCNA and am not really much good at command lines, I like the text menu structure of our HP switches.

    We have ISA Server 2004 already between our network and PIX.

    Layout at moment:

    Internet - LEA bubble - PIX - ISA - Network

    Do we still need a hardware firewall or will ISA be good enough on it's own? Money is not an object really.

    Do people still only go with Cisco PIX or is there a HP equivelant that's just as good and easier to configure?

    The Cisco ASA is worth looking at i think. There VPN solution through the ASA is very good.

    I believe that you would need command line skills to be able to configure one of these though.

    I wont be doing the initial configuration, that will be being done by some external engineers, but I thought it might be helpful if I could add/remove settings at a later date if needed.
