Hardware firewalls

Hardware firewalls are easy to use and install and are usually faster than their software counterparts and tend to be more reliable. One of the real benefits of a hardware firewall is that it will often come bundled with additional services. So your hardware firewall may act as a router as well as say a DHCP server that automatically assigns IP addresses to all the computers on your network. A hardware firewall may be more expensive, but you get more for your money.
