Review: Astaro Security Gateway

Review: Astaro Security Gateway

The ASG 425 is at the top end of Astaro’s 1U appliance range, with several smaller versions and two larger options available. The unit offers eight ports, but just one is active by default and is used for the internal segment (and web management). The rest must be specifically enabled and configured, which is our preferred default configuration: everything blocked by default.

Review: FortiGate-1000A

We were pleased to see that this unit’s web GUI was one of the few being tested that defaults to a secure HTTPS connection. There is also a fully featured console available through serial connection, although it has a blank default password. That can be set, but a lot of users might forget, leaving their systems vulnerable.

Review: Kerio WinRoute Firewall

This was the only software being tested. WinRoute is intended to be installed on Windows systems, and there must be doubts about the product’s viability as Microsoft continues building features into ISA Server. For now, WinRoute is cheaper and offers features ISA does not.

Review: NETASQ F800 UTM

NETASQ sent us a very attractive 1U box which boasted a very impressive collection of features. While most of these did work as advertised, it was let down by its interface and set-up process. But the box did perform rather well in the end.

Review: PRO 4100

Review: PRO 4100

SonicWALL’s PRO line of UTM appliances offers a good collection of features over and beyond a basic firewall, although this core feature is well provided. The 4100 we received is at the upper end of the line, offering 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports and throughput of 800Mbps. A 2.4Gbps version is also available.

Review: TSP 7300

The Total Stream Protection (TSP) line was part of the package when Secure Computing bought CyberGuard. This model is a beefy 3U box, supporting up to 38 ports with a total filtered throughput of 2.8Gbps (or half that for AES-encrypted VPNs). Hot-swappable redundant power and RAID storage is standard, and the box fully supports high-availability in various configurations.
