Following on from last Tuesday’s incident we are following through on our promises.
Our technical team had been discussing the finer points of various firewalls for some time. When it comes to choosing equipment they always spend quite a bit of time evaluating the options. They have to take into account a lot of different factors.
How well will it work with existing equipment?
Will it scale?
How long before we have to replace it?
How much does it cost?
Do we have staff who know how to use it?
Does it support ipv6?
How much traffic can it handle?
How many concurrent connections can it handle?
How much RAM does it need?
The list goes on and on…
In the end we decided to go with Cisco ASA 5500 series.
And since we love our camera phones here are a couple of snaps of the new firewalls. Before anyone asks – I’m not 100% sure when they’ll be installed.
