$10k may seem steep, but it has saved me plenty and I don't have to do anything with it...it just works.
My same take on our Barracuda spam filter. It's not cheap when you first look at it, but it's worth it's weight in gold.
Seen a lot of people complain about these, but it has saved our asses, repeatedly. It just works. When I need support, it's a little bit of nail-biting on the phone going through the gauntlet of opening a case etc etc when something is dead. But every time they've gone in remotely and done magic.
Some things may look expensive at first, but the price is well worth the Tylenol saved.
I looked at NetEQ years ago, and was instantly turned off for most of the reasons mentioned in the thread. Gimme a CCR/x86 with Butch's script any day.
