    A client wants to purchase a 3rd party firewall instead of the built in
    Windows (no point asking why or argue).
    I am looking for a centralized solution (NOT SYMANTEC) for SBS. The
    already run Trend Micro Client Server Messaging Security for SMB and are
    very happy with it. Is their firewall any good?
    Any other hands on recommendations?

  2. I know you say "no point in arguing"
    but I'd honestly rather you not have 'any' third party firewall solution
    than a non MS one.

    I track patching issues and I cannot tell you how much massive amount of
    patching grief I seen every time there is an IE patch (which is every
    other month).

    Seriously, you will have more patch issues to follow up on having a
    third party firewall than you will have with no firewall.

    Is the client willing to pay you for the Patch Tuesday fallout that will
    occur?
