We’re currently investigating firewall and security products for our campuses and are looking closer at the Unified Threat Management (UTM) devices. They are attractive in terms of the ‘all-in-one’ approach, but I’m leery of performance issues, etc…


I’m wondering if anyone is using  such devices at their campuses, and if so, where in your network are they and any thoughts on their performance, etc….


If you feel this question is a bit off-topic for this discussion list, I’d be happy to discuss this off-list.
