What software firewall do you suggest for W2003 server ?

We used BlackICE so far, but I'm wonder if there is some better solution especialy against dDos attacks. Can you suggest something ? Especially if your suggestion is based on your experiences. I wonder if there is something that can be managed via Web interface.

Against DDOS attacks it is very difficult /almost impossible to defend at the server level. I would recommend a hardware firewall for that.

Even a hardware firewall wont mitigate against a DDOS - once the DDOS packets have left the switch and are heading towards your server, that's your bandwidth gone, period. You need a way of mitigating the effects of DDOS further upstream. Both TP and EV1 (to name but two) have methods in place to achieve this.

Here, this may help.
