Big Firewalls reviewed

I just read a lengthy review
of enterprise firewalls that have all the add-ons: Deep packet inspection, IDP,
VPN, and High Availability.  Security Pipeline got all the big boys together:
Check Point Software Technologies' Next Generation With Application
Intelligence, CyberGuard Corp.'s TSP 7100 Security Appliance, Fortinet's
FortiGate-3600 Antivirus Firewall 2.8, Juniper Networks' NetScreen-ISG 2000,
Secure Computing's Sidewinder G2 and Symantec Corp.'s Symantec Gateway Security
5460 Appliance.
The bottom line: Jupiner pulled out ahead
due to raw performance and Fortinet pulled in a close second due to
affordability.  It was noted that the IDP add-on for the Juniper firewall was
not available for the test.
This is good news because I currently resell both Juniper and Netscreen.  It's nice to know that I am the right path regarding vendors.  I am still looking for a
good review for mid-sized products.  Check out the full review at:
