I have couple of boxes of Ubuntu 10.04 servers in my office environment. At the same time I have 10 Apple Macs for end users usage.
I am considering to buy Network Security Appliance (firewall for internal office environment), reviewed SonicWall NSA2400 and PaloAlto PA-500 (entry level but super expensive). Sonicwall is more affordable to my environment.
However Sonicwall's reporting module only works on Windows Server 2008. Without that reporting module, I can't check historic data.
I need to have a network security appliace for this:-
a) works well with linux and apple, probably can link up with Linux OpenLDAP or something instead of tracking by IP address?
b) appmonitor - blocks facebook, facebook chat, block urls
c) anti-virus and anti-spyware
d) QOS - used for outbound SIP calls, priority port 5060
e) SSL VPN
f) IPSec VPN
g) basic wan acceleration
Any recommendations? Thank you.
