Hello,

If you have a good hardware firewall add a second firewall is useless(there's some cases where it is usefull, if you want to add a security layer between users on a same network).
A hardware firewall is supposed to be better because it has both the software and hardware optimised to do the job.
Plus whereas software firewall can be installed anywhere a hardware firewall has to have its own machine.
If you compare a software firewall installed on a server that counts because mixing roles weakens the firewall (by adding security holes or consume ressources) you dont have this issue with a hardware firewall.
