    We do not use the firewall provided by plesk and microsoft. A professional environment needs a hardware firewall like SonicWall.

    You need to open the ports to access HTTP, HTTPS, Mail, FTP and some other, depending what services you will offer.

    Personally, i don't like Symantec at all. We're using Sophos and BitDefender,

    Sophos is quite expensive, but it works perfectly.

    To be honest, never tested ;-)

    Yes, Plesk comes with a open source firewall. You can configure the firewall easily. To get more infos about it, please browse or search the forum and at least, check out the plesk manual.
