NetScreen Technologies NetScreen-500 with Gigabit fiber interface is a solid firewall and VPN appliance that will be a good fit for shops needing greater performance than is possible through a 10/100M-bps interface. However, shops familiar with Cisco products should look at that companys comparable PIX 535 firewall.

SHORT-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // The NetScreen-500 will let ISPs and large enterprises promptly increase their firewall and VPN throughput beyond the 10/100M-bps rate that is common today.

LONG-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // A firewall with the ability to handle speeds faster than 700M bps and a VPN that can transfer data at close to 250M bps should satisfy most businesses for the foreseeable future.

Fast throughput through firewall and when handling encrypted data over a VPN; straightforward setup.

No NT Domain authentication of remote users.
