Hi Ed,

Are you after an application firewall or a host firewall? Most vendors have moved away from software installed on top of an OS to appliance style setups as they are easier to support.

Hi people,

Just a simple question, but with a not so simple answer.

We manage considerable clients with ‘cloud’ based servers within Telstra’s utility hosting.
We used to use TMG as a firewall / gateway / security for clients who requested these features,  but this is no longer possible.

I need recommendations on application based (non VM) firewalls which can be installed on server 08 / 12 and capable of the same feature set as TMG. Not as easy to find now..

So, I ask my esteemed peers for words of wisdom.
Well, words, anyway.

Kind regards,
Ed Hallett
