About pfSense® Software

The pfSense® software is a network firewall router distribution based on the FreeBSD operating system. It includes a custom kernel and third party software packages for additional functionality. Through this package system, the pfSense® firewall software is able to provide the same functionality of most common commercial firewalls. It has successfully replaced every big name commercial firewall in numerous installations around the world, including Check Point, Cisco PIX, Cisco ASA, Juniper, Sonicwall, Netgear, Watchguard, Astaro, and more.

The pfSense® firewall software includes a web interface for the configuration of all included components. Unlike some similar GNU/Linux-based firewall distributions, there is no need for any UNIX knowledge, no need to use the command line for anything, and no need to ever manually edit any rule sets. In fact, the majority of pfSense® firewall software users have never installed or used a stock FreeBSD system. Users familiar with commercial firewalls catch on to the web interface quickly.

  1. Perfect For Our Small Office

    Posted by Unknown on 8th Jun 2014

    I purchased this unit because it had a rack mount option and the specifications were good enough for our small office. I like the features of pfSense and for the price, you can't beat what you get. I highly recommend this unit to other small businesses.
