As I stated before, I haven't used either so I am in no way an
authoritative source, but in general anytime you do additional
processing in the data channel, some penalty is going to be incurred.
I am sure there are things that can be done to mitigate this penalty
to a degree (i.e. offloading encryption operations to an add-in card)
but only you can be the judge if the trade off is a good one.
