Because pfSense® software is so feature-rich, it’s no surprise it has grown in popularity over the years. No other firewall package comes close to offering feature-set that pfSense software provides in a standard install. We’ve seen it deployed in small offices, as well as massive data centers across the world. From their own website:
The pfSense project is a free network firewall distribution, based on the FreeBSD operating system with a custom kernel and including third party free software packages for additional functionality. Through this package system pfSense software is able to provide most of the functionality of common commercial firewalls, and many times more. It has successfully replaced every big name commercial firewall you can imagine in numerous installations around the world
Although the software is available to download for free, until now only drawback was that you had to supply your own hardware. For most this isn’t a huge problem (compute resources are inexpensive and the software runs on just about anything), but having a known supported hardware configuration is always a benefit to a growing enterprise. This is why we are excited to announce the availability of three different options from Netgate® for a fully supported pfSense firewall system:
The Netgate C2758 1U rack system is a state of the art Network Firewall Router Appliance, featuring the low-power Silvermont microarchitecture and the Intel® Atom™ C2000 (Rangeley) family SoC. The C2758 8-core SoC features a high level of I/O and acceleration integration and optimal performance per watt. The Netgate 2758 with pfSense software delivers a high performance, high throughput front-line security architecture at a phenomenally low price per gigabit. (Product Page)
