At WNESU we have been using Sonic Wall Firewalls with content filtering. We
have 5 of them in the district and of the 5 only one needed to be replaced.
The one that needed replacement was an unlimited user firewall so it was
more expensive $ 876.00 with one year content filtering. The others are for
50 users and none of them have given any of us any trouble. They cost a
little less than the unlimited. Another alternative that is much cheaper is
the Firewall by Symantec. I'm not sure how good they are as I do not have on
in service at this time. They were substantially cheaper.
