– Firewall to secure your network
– NAT – forwarding TCP ports for Servers, CCTV DVRs, Remote access.
– Multi-WAN Load balancing to use multiple ISPs at the same time (either in failover or load balancing mode)
– VPN – Securely accessing your office network or connecting satellite offices to the HQ
– Reporting – RRD Graphs and real-time traffic graphs
– Dynamic DNS – If you don’t have a static IP, but need to configure VPN or port forwarding for CCTV, you can integrate pfSense with many popular dynamic DNS providers. Like no-ip or dyndns
– Captive Portal – This feature allows you to force authentication, or redirection to a click through page for network access. This is commonly used on Wi-Fi hotspot networks (malls, coffee shops, hotels, airports)

pfSense feature-set can be extended by the use of packages

– Our prime goal is to provide an affordable, stable and secure firewall solution to SMEs in India

 

Comparison with commercial firewalls

Open-Source vs Commercial Firewalls :

Benefits with an open-source firewall are:

– No subscription charges – With most commercial firewalls you have to pay an expensive “subscription fees” to use even the most basic functions. With open-source firewalls, there are no subscription charges whatsoever.

– Lifetime free updates and upgrades – You get free security updates and upgrades to new versions free of charge.

– No user limit – You have no hard limits on number of users. You can add as many users as the hardware resources permit

– Open hardware – If you don’t like pfSense or want to switch to something else, you can easily install virtually ANY Linux / Unix based operating system without any problems. Once you purchase the hardware, it is yours to do as you like!

– Extensible – You can extend the features of the firewall by installing additional packages of your choice. (Like snort / suricata, squid /squidguard )

– Highly affordable – Most commercial firewalls with 4GB ram (that virtually support 4,000,000+ concurrent connections or more) start at Rs. 3 Lakhs !

 

Comparison with assembled desktop firewalls

While you can easily build an assembled desktop firewall for about the same price, here is why we recommend the NFW2C4:

Consumes Less power – It only consumes 6W to 10W of power, which means it can be online on your UPS for a very long time as compares to a regular 500W desktop SMPS

Highly Reliable – Our firewall has no moving parts with passive cooling and so it is far more reliable than any assembled desktop that frequently fail due to SMPS, FAN and other failures.

Takes Less Space – Due to its compact size, It takes up the same space as your broadband modem or a wireless router!

POE Enabled – If you have a PoE switch, you don’t even need the power adapter. You can directly power the firewall with an ethernet cable from your PoE enabled switch

 

Current use cases

Currently, this firewall is being used in a variety of industry verticals. 

Some use cases are:

– As a standard firewall to secure your network against hackers

– For website filtering at offices, schools, colleges, call centers, Industries etc.

– As a WAN load balancer to combine multiple internet connections for companies that need 100% uptime.
You can even use 3G / 4G routers for failover / loadbalancing

– At hotels / restaurants where you want to offer guest Wi-Fi with username / password or voucher based authentication.

– For connecting branch offices to the corporate office on standard broadband connections

    I’ve been using this pfSense firewall as a core element of my network infrastructure for over 10 years. It connects multiple sites together, and provides protection, IPS, remote connectivity, DHCP services, and a very configurable IP aliasing system. You can have enterprise features on commodity hardware with an open source product.

    This has proved to be a very useful equipment for our small business LAN. We have two connections – one leased line and one broadband – from two different service providers. I read up reviews of load balancers online and decided to buy. And so far there are no troubles.
