I work for a large tech services company.
I am currently researching firewalls and am looking for the best solution. Which Firewall solution would you recommend and why?
Thank you for your help.

For features and functionality, take a look at Palo Alto and Fortinet. Cisco is very good, however, they are not at the level for Next-gen features when compared to Palo Alto and Fortinet. If you have cloud infrastructure then you may wish to look at Zscaler. CheckPoint and Juniper are also very good options. If you are looking at open source then look at pfSense. Take a look at this article: 7 Best Firewall Solutions for Enterprises in 2023 (enterprisenetworkingplanet.com)
Hi Hwaeum, Outta my experience Cisco and Paloalto, both have its own USP's, also it depends on the use case. whether it's for gateway level or at branch level and depends on the usage of the end users. hope you've already considered all these parameters. 1. Cisco - Now the NGFW with new FTD software is really working out good with Enterprise customers, also the operational point of view ease to manage it with the help of FMC gives very good dashboard experience too.

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.
