Currently we use WatchGuard Firebox II to protect our company's small
Since WatchGuard is not going to support this firewall model anymore,
we are thinking of upgrading it to Firebox III (Firebox 700).
Is the Firebox III more stable than Firebox II? Is there any
performance and feature improvement over the previous model?
I asked this question because my old Firebox II often locks up and
must be cold-rebooted once every two months.

Thanks in advance!
