- Nokia (Hardware)+ Checkpoint (Software) if you have money to spend.
- Sun Blade + Solaris (there is an open firewall for solaris, but I cant
remember its name, sorry).
- PC + *nix if not.

Nokia use a proprietary OS. CheckPoint is a leader in the market. Sun is
good for developing mid sized servers. The last if for the "make it
yourself".

There are options in the middle, if you wish (Stonegate and others...).
In all cases you also need a third party solution for antivirus
(Trendmicro and similar), SPAM, content filtering, etc.

A tip, search for 1 solution for 1 problem, not 1 solution for all the
problems. I think its not the way. Modular solutions works better in
wider scenarios, and you can make a "modular solution" for the wide
variety of costumers (work once, live better...).

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 =)
