I recommend Juniper, after we bought some (2x ISG 1000 and 4 SSG 140).
We're totally satisfied, we run it high available with ospf via IPSec
(also for SSG20 available).The IPSec implementation is nice and clean, in
my opinion the best commercial Solution I ever saw (I had a OpenBSD Setup
before and later we dealt with sonicwall but that was the biggest crap
ever, and cisco was only able to send routing informations via GRE even
NAT Traversal was not possible)

It's just my opinion and my experience I made.

There's alot more than marketing specs. I replaced 28 Checkpoint
firewalls with Juniper and have been a happy camper ever since.
We now have 72 Juniper firewalls and growing.

You haven't stated any requirements so how can we recommend?
