    As we know Sygate was bought some time ago from Symantec. Now (could be some time ago, don't know) they release a so called 'Symantec Sygate Enterprise Protection'. Somebody tried it? Can it compete with our old Sysgate FW (may it rest in peace)?

    This product is for mainly for servers and server OS (as suggested by the inclusion of 'Enterprise' in its name). It not really meant for a desktop PC and hence cannot really replace the Sygate Desktop Firewall (although one comonent of the product can be installed on desktop PCs). Check the system requirements:

    Symantec I believe has done away with the old Syagte Desktop Fireall and the main firewall they are selling is Norton Personal Firewall. It would not make any sense for them to sell two different desktop firewall. Whether they want to replace Norton's firewall engine with Sygate is a different question.
