Home Network Security update

I have updated my guide to protecting your home network. You can get a copy here

Some folks have asked me about some of the more affordable UTM devices they can get.

Today some of the more affordable UTMs are :
  • Sophos SG series
  • Dell SonicWall TZ Series
  • Zyxel USG series


the Sophos devices have the highest throughput but a bit more pricey.

The lower end sonic wall (TZ SOHO) is the cheapest but also lowest bandwidth, I actually recommend the TZ300w as a minimum level for SonicWall.

My personal favourite is the Zyxel USG60w, although the USG40w could fit most needs.

at the end of the day, it would be a decision to balance cost vs performance.
