Cisco IOS Firewall Feature Set v. PIX

How would you explain to a client the benefits of using a PIX instead of the Cisco IOS Firewall when they have already purchased the Cisco IOS Firewall with a 2600? Other than the layered approach recommended by Cisco what would be the benefits?

Thanks

Re: Cisco IOS Firewall Feature Set v. PIX

Specific boxes have specific functions.

Firewalls are used for packet security

Routers are for packet movement

Let products do their core competency.

Trucks are made for off roading

Cars are made for on road.

You wouldn't take your Honda off road would you, even though you could probably get away w/ it for a while?

C-ya,

Mike
