RE: Why should one buy (or not) an Appliance-based security gateway?

Max,

How big are these networks that use default firewall rules? In a large
growing corporate network, we have to deal with stuff all the time. Users
want to do that...some other company or vendor needs a port open to do
something. They want you to just do it because all the other companies do
it. Kinda sad. Lol

Fault-tolerance firewalls, border routers, proxy with virus scan...access
list, IDS, you know you need the works to protect a enterprise size network.

Because you dont know that much about security ??? ( a theoretical "you" !!)

If you know what you need, and what can you do, you do it by yourself, and 
only rely on your capacities.

If you need protection, or at least some kind of monitoring activity, but
dont 
know much about network security, then you go an buy a solution

Thats what I think

BTW, all the network admins I know use firewall for protection, but dont now

much aside from that, most of the time use some kind of precoded rules, and 
keep it like that forever.
