Best Unified Threat Manager

SonicWall NSA E7500 got top rating of those reviewed as the best unified threat manager:
Among the four devices we tested, only one -- the SonicWall NSA E7500 -- provided a significant level of protection against malware, blocking 96 percent of the attacks we threw at it. However, I'm most interested in the comment at the bottom of the latter from mememe:
It's too bad you didn't try some of the better alternatives like pfsense. I have used/supported sonicwall and watchguard (from the 700 series up to 6 months ago latest version) and pfsense can easily outperform both. Oh yeah, I almost forgot to mention. pfsense is free/open source.
If it were me, I'd give pfsense a try. Some years back FreeBSD was noted as a top pick for a secure OS and even recently it got glowing reviews from the military.
