Hello,

        I personally like the BorderWare Firewall Server, it provides a nice
content filter for HTTP traffic. It has a VPN solution.

For spam ... not to sound like a BorderWare Reseller but they also have
a product called the Mxtreme (www.mxtreme.com). I have used the Mxtreme
and I believe it is the best anti-spam system on the market, plus it has
AV for email too.

Oh .. also a OWA web proxy which is nice.

I would stay away from the SideWinder Firewall, have not heard good
things. If was I going to use a security appliances I would pick one of
the following ( in order ):

Borderware Firewall Server
Cisco PIX
CheckPoint

I am currently researching security appliances, specifically firewalls
that provide Anti-Virus at the network level, VPN, and perhaps some
sort of SPAM filtering for small to medium-sized businesses.  The
NetScreen 5GT looks pretty good and I would like to know if anyone has
positive or negative experiences with NetScreen, or can recommend
another unit to suit my needs.

Thanks in advance, my first post =)
