If you're going to stay with an appliance, stay with the Watchguard since
you know it.

You might consider a custom Linux or BSD-based firewall - better performance
if configured properly, roughly same cost, more flexible.

L&G,

Considering upgrading from a Watchguard FBIII 4500 to ?
Netscreen
Checkpoint
Bigger/newer Watchguard

VPN speed is important.

Comments and links to comparisons would be appreciated.
Thanks
