This document gives you information on why we should use SEP firewall rather than Windows Firewall.

Now if you could post one comparing SEP 12.1 / Windows 7 Firewall that'd be even better :)

Gartner Magic Quadrant dated 2007, that’s 5 years, huh? Btw, as of January 2012 Symantec is definitely on the first place (Endpoint Protection Platforms). Since FW doesn’t changed much through Vista to Windows 7, document needs some minor improvement and still very useful.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for pointing out Alex.. Agree the Quadrant report is too old..

According to new report (2012) SEP is on top and micsoft is still far behind so the difference between them are almost same
