I need to get a new hardware firewall. I was looking at a Netgear FVS318G but am seeing terrible reviews. What is a good hardware firewall these days?

 

Thanks for any help.

Are you also interested in open source solutions?

The best firewall in market is  Fortinet, Mcafee and Sonicwall. You can try any one of them.

I work a lot with Fortinet and they seem to be reasonably solid, never had a bad experience with one.

SonicWALL, WatchGuard, Fortinet, Cisco, these are all good appliances for firewall solutions.

Each of the above vendors offers low end devices for small offices.

 

Some examples:

Low end SonicWALL devices: http://www.sonicwall.com/us/en/products/TZ-Series.html#tab=models

Low end WatchGuard device: http://www.watchguard.com/wgrd-products/utm/firebox-t10/overview

 

NetGear, while I am a fan of their switches, do not like their firewalls at all.  You would do yourself a favor to avoid, lots of headaches.

FYI...You and the posters afterwards have replied to a topic 9 months old. The OP has not been back since he asked his question.
