The pfSense project is a free network firewall distribution based on the FreeBSD operating system with a customized kernel and many other software packages for additional functionality. The pfSense firewall is thus able to provide the same or more functionalities as many well-known commercial firewall solutions without artificial limitations.

pfSense firewalls have already replaced every major name in the commercial firewall environment in countless installations, including Checkpoint, Cisco PIX, Cisco ASA, Juniper, Sonicwall, Netgear, Watchguard, Astaro and many more.

We use this firewall solution in our projects, among other things, as a firewall but also as a VPN gateway.

pfSense offers you a powerful, flexible platform for firewall and routing. The free open source software was developed specifically for use as a firewall or router.

Here are just a few features of pfSense:

  • Firewall
  • Server load balancing
  • Captive portal
  • State Table
  • Dynamic DNS
  • DHCP Server & Relay
  • NAT
  • PPPoE Server
  • High Availability
  • Virtual Private Network (VPN)
  • RADIUS server
  • Multi-WAN
  • Reporting & Monitoring
  • ....and much more

As a pfSense partner, we have access to the latest software versions, pfSense-compatible hardware, and a wide range of training and certification measures to ensure our cloud solutions are always state of the art.

In addition, the software can be used on embedded systems because it has low performance requirements. pfSense is completely open source and can be used without licensing costs.

pfSense targets smaller embedded systems that require few hardware resources. pfSense is completely controlled via a web interface. All configuration data is stored in an XML file. Instead of the ipfilter "pf" is used. There is an SSH access with direct shell access. pfSense can be extended with many packages, for example with the web proxy (Squid), IDS (Snort) and many more. Multiple WAN connections for easy load balancing, or failover scenarios, are also possible.

Firewalls are not static tools that, once put into operation, require no further maintenance. Therefore we offer:

  • Automated and systematic backup of your configurations
  • Software updates within the scope of our support contracts
  • Specific advice on upgrades to new version numbers

Take advantage of all the benefits of this innovative network security. We guarantee you a customized concept as well as sensible alternatives through targeted firewall consulting. Benefit from stable and effective protection of your network infrastructure!
