Firewall hardware

I have been having problems at my company where spyware and spam is dragging our systems down. I was going to install basic ad-aware and zone alarm to each computer but decided agaisnt that, i rather set the setting myself rather then have my marketing guys worry about that sorta thing.

What I have decided to do was to maybe purchase some hardware to prevent these attacks and/or "break-ins". I have narrowed my selection down to two firewall companies one preimer company ...sonicwall and another that i have done some research on and seem to be popular was barracuda firewall. has anyone used these before or have any other firewall suggestions?

P.S. I hope this was the right forum to post this kind of question at

We use sonicwalls at our company and our client sites and have been happy with them. We use them as firewalls and also to manage anti-virus and anti-spyware. It's nice being able to manage it all in one place.

For SPAM, we use a 3rd party vendor(Postini) so those emails never hit our email server. All email gets routed through them first.
