I am looking at firewall options to support an SMB with 50 employees and approximately 100 devices. The ISP provides 1 Gbps service, however, I do not have data regarding specific VPN requirements, concurrent connections, etc.
Untangle, pfSense, Cisco, and Palo Alto are currently being looked at, with hardware and virtualized solutions being considered.Thank you.
Firewall software is important for companies because it helps to protect their computer networks from unauthorized access and cyber-attacks.-Firewall software acts as a barrier between a company's internal network and the internet, filtering out potentially harmful traffic.-It can prevent hackers from gaining access to sensitive data and systems.-Firewall software can also block malicious software, such as viruses and malware, from entering a company's network.-It can help to ensure compliance with industry regulations and standards for data security.-Firewall software can provide detailed logs and reports on network activity, which can be useful for monitoring and troubleshooting.

A firewall can help prevent malicious software from infecting your computer as well as block unwanted traffic.
Different levels of protection can be provided by firewalls. The most important thing is to figure out how much security you need.
