    I have just read about this great one and the worst about ZASS. Is it AD working like a firewall as a part of its functions? The os is windows 2003 server.

    Appdefend isn't a full firewall. It allows you to control outbound connections to the network, but not inbound.

    It is just a hips software like PG and SSM. So it can be considered as one of security complements to protect the computer.

    As "....." said, appdefend isn't a full firewall as it only does outbound control
    Ghost Security also have another product called Ghostwall (which is free) that is a simple and effective rules based firewall

    Over time it would be reasonable to expect that AD's firewalling capabilities will become at least a little more feature rich, but its not too bad a solution having both AD and GW to control network access considering that their resource consumption is relatively low

    Have a look at the gkweb's excellent leaktester site for some more firewall comparisons
    There are quite a few things you might want to consider before choosing a firewall for a server.

    There is also a firewall section at Wilders that you could post in, and it could be helpful if you said a little about what the server is going to be used for, if it will be directly exposed to the Internet, or behind another (corporate) firewall etc
