Most of the cisco routers cum firewall comes with such function. But if u are looking for a separate firewall management, then go for fortinet or sonicwall or snapgear series. I have more experience with fortinet. The speed will also depend on your bandwidth. You will need a static ip for vpn to work. Hope this helps...

Try F5.....I do not have something else to benchmark against but can feel it's slightly slower...but if u go for today's fiber network...it should be a far cry as our adsl :)

Another one we ever evaluated was Juniper :) but most network vendor like Cisco and checkpoint should have something similar....the different will be price and maintenance renewal cost :)

Why pay when there is so much out there for free?
And if you want to set up a service like that, you need a USA co-location, corporate bandwidth package, failover and load balanced servers, etc etc

I only use free vpn servers to the usa and europe (Tor) and it works like a charm.

How fast is the free VPN?

Quite fast.... I use it to download games from Steam in the USA when it's not unlocked for Singapore yet. I get about 6 megabytes per second.

I used a US based VPN provider for purchasing from B&H. It is a usage based subscription, meaning I subscribed for 5GB and only need to renew when I exhausted my data plan. This suits my usage. However, if you need to be logged on for long durations, then perhaps one providing a time based plan may be more suitable for you.

PM me if you need a usage based subscription. I refrain from posting the provider here as China just banned such VPN services. I don't know if and when Singapore will adopt such restriction.
