PFSense an Open Source Enterprise Firewall
Pfsense is an open source firewall distribution. It offers many enterprise features that allow it to connect any network to the internet with a secure approach. Using Pfsense you will connect cloud-to-cloud, cloud-to-site, site-to-site, etc. Pfsense is a rethinking of how open source firewalls can run your enterprise allowing you to save money and, with the right techniques, you can become more secure. With Pfsense you don’t have to worry about if you have a current license for your device being open source you have the freedom of continuous updates. There are thousands of people that contribute to the project allowing for vulnerabilities to be stopped and fixed, at an increased, rate that property vendors can’t match. Property vendors often keep vulnerabilities quite, believing in the security of obscurity. That means that they don’t always fix the problem meaning that once a hacker finds the vulnerability in your firewall you could be breached. If you’re like me that doesn’t sound like a great approach, I would rather be able to update and fix the issues as they arise not wait months for a fix.
