Zyxel Zywall 35 UTM

 

Good AV and signature-based intrusion detection system (IDS). Reasonable price. Easy installation and configuration.

IDS signature update sometimes unreliable. Spam and content filtering engines not from top-tier providers.

Zywall 35 UTM

The Zywall 35 UTM is a capable Internet security appliance with unified threat management features for the small business. Its attractive price and easy configuration should make it a good alternative for those relying on desktop security only.

Zywall P1 portable firewall

 

A firewall in a very small, portable box. Is this ingenious, or is it over-doing things?

The P1 only has software firewalls as competition. Certainly, the firewall in Windows XP SP2 is not yet featured enough to stand up to life on the move.

Top performer

 

Works straight out of the box. Fast, even with a heavy transfer load on all ports. Zero drops. Very small, sturdy, and looks good.

Solid and Cool Running

 

Miss the speed lights, like the small metal case. Have four so far for about a month and so far - bulletproof.

Consumer review (tigerdirect.com)

As long as you don't need a priority port or any sort of management, this is a solid switch. This is largely a commodity item, so shop other brands to make sure you get the best price.
