Watchguard product is always my choice. I used this product since Firebox II and very okie. Even that is expnsive compared to other product like Checkpoint, Fortinet, Sophos, SonicWall, Juniper and other brand. Some of them just a copycat of other model, some of them are very difficult to configure. Cisco Firewall is always not my choice because of the price. Reporting cost is also hidden agenda to turn other model down. Watchguard give you FOC for 40 reports and online blocking /scannign the user. Not much brand can do as what we desire. Sorry in advance, but, Fortinet give me hopeless and I hate it most.
