- 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 =)
