looking to change a pix 506e for an rv042, good or bad move ?

Hi,

i'm looking to change my pix 506e for an rv042,

is it a bad move or a good move ? is the rv042 much better than the 506e ?

i want to change to an rv042 because it's easier to manage!

506e is currently doing this :

firewall for a web hosting company (7 servers)

2 vpn tunnel

one-to-one nat.

performance side : is the rv042 much better than the 506e ???

should i pick up an rv082 or an rv016 ? are they much better than the rv042 ?

Tommy,

This would be the device i would swap out before the RV042 - Security appliance SA500 series devices.

RV082 has a faster CPU and more memory, which can deliver higher throughput and more VPN tunnels than RV042. But you can start with RV042 to see if the performance is sufficient.
