Hardware firewall needed, consumer or business

Recommended Posts

Hello there fellow tech as title says, I kinda need to have a consumer or small business hardware firewall, although I don't know which one will suit my needs.

 

Requirements:  mitigation and filtering (Syn packets, Layer 3,4 and 7 and reduce any up coming bad packets attacks), GUI management from 'server' and firewall cannot be disabled through GUI by human error or malwares.

 

Although I have been looking at 

Cisco ASA 5505, Cisco ASA 5510 and Cisco ASA 5520 I'd like someone to respond if they have used a personal hardware firewall or have used a hardware firewall for their cloud  servers that did protect your small business from these bad packets.

 

I will appreciate any little help to make my final decision of purchasing one in future.

Cheers :D .

Any competent firewall will do this. An ASA will meet this need, but so will any number of other commercial or free products. If you have any old PCs lying around you should strongly consider setting one up as a Linux firewall with PFSense, Untangle Free, or IPFire, rather than buying kit for this purpose.

Once again, this is default now with a few rare exceptions like VyOS.

You're out of luck here. If an attacker has access to your firewall GUI he can disable its filtering rules. Don't let an attacker into your firewall.

 

I'm not aware of any free firewalls that support 2FA admin logins, but if you're really concerned about the security of your firewall console that's probably the way to go. The Cisco Meraki MX64 might be a good fit for that scenario - it supports free 2FA via Google Authenticator or similar (same TOTP protocol that Crowfall uses).
