I am a Cloud Engineer at a small tech services company.
I am currently researching firewalls. Which solution do you prefer: Palo Alto Networks PA-3410 Firewall or FortiGate 601F? What are the pros and cons of each solution?
Thank you for your help.

You are telling us your company is small, but for choice active equipment you need to know how big the need for your client is, not yours.
And also you may discuss if you are the provider of the tech service for management (local or remote), or if you're just going to provide the equipment for some internal IT by your customer.So, there are a few questions before choosing the Router/Gateway, but if you already have an answer for all that, I'll go for Sophos XG Firewall every time, if the customer can afford it or for smaller customer Ubiquiti Edge Infinity Router.

Which solution do you prefer: pfSense or KerioControl? What are the pros and cons of each solution?
Hi, pfSense is better solution for small business. Pro : It's open source product and can be used with dedicate box such as Netgate. Good community support. Very cheap solution, one time cost, no subscription or license renewal. Work perfectly, Monitoring and control is best in class. Cons: Complex in configuration, Require good technical knowledge. Using Netgate 6100 with 400 endpoints with auto configuration settings working good.
