nuqneH,

That reminds me why there could be no such thing as good whisky/cola
or gin/tonic mix in a can: every company that tries to make it has its
own cola or tonic breed and it is usually not satisfying even if they
try to use well-known good gin or whisky, and using different cola or
tonic is against the company policy ;-)

What makes you feel that?  Historically, vendors have done a *terrible*
job of loading multiple codebases onto a single system, and all these
products will come from different development teams inside a vendor.


ips,firewall,anti-virus. url-filtering and anti-spam in one single box.

So, one failure of any one component at the right level and you lose AV,
firewalling, anti-spam and filtering- that seems like a major increase in
risk.

Plus- and this is the biggie- now you're not choosing the best-of-breed of
any of the services, you're getting whatever that vendor's good at and
then the rest of their stuff that most likely couldn't survive on its own.
