The advantage to hardware firewalls is that hackers and malware can't reconfigure it nearly as easily as software firewalls. Software can be easily compromised because by nature it is easily modifiable, while hardware is not. At the same time, this allows software to be upgraded and updated easily (and a lot cheaper).
