Hardware vs Software firewall
New NM wants to have a Firewall (we don't currently have one:eek: so fair enough (I'm new too!)). We've had lots of problems with viruses, so one with scanning options is a must.
He thinks that Hardware firewall is best. I want to ensure that we have the flexibility of something like ISA server, where we can say that these active directory users, can use these websites, on these computers at this time.
We also need filtering and antivirus. Are there Hardware firewalls that can meet these requirements? esp. Active Directory integration.
In the future we'd also need RADIUS for wireless authentication. ISA has this built in.
