recommendations for VPN/firewall device

Unanswered Question
Oct 18th, 2007

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this. We're looking for a device that provides VPN/firewall. There will be up to 50 VPN connections incoming. We'll also be setting up a web server for light duty. The 1800 series seems to be a good fit for our purposes. I'd appreciate suggestions for which of this series to purchase. Also, I understand that some models in this series come with built-in switches. Would it be alright to rely on the built-in 8-port swtich, for instance, or should we buy a separate switch? Thanks in advance

I have this problem too.

Your decision will depend on your budget and which features you want (i.e. IPSec and SSL vpn, IPS, etc.) and how much scalability you want.

You can look at the ASA5510 p/n:ASA5510-BUN-K9 or at a Cisco 1841 p/n:CISCO1841-HSEC/K9

with any of these devices you will probably require a switch.
