pfSense Review

Easy to install, good support, and good value for the price

What is our primary use case?

We use pfSense for our firewall protection.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are ease of installation and support.

What needs improvement?

The domain blocking lists need to be improved. The supported list for domain blocking is community-maintained, and I would like to see something from the manufacturers of pfSense that is a little more global.

I would like to see different graphs available in the reporting.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using pfSense for two months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

pfSense is quite stable. It is one of the pros.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is very good, where you can do an HA configuration and then bring in another box, if necessary. We have ten users in the organization.

We get very little usage and have no plans to increase it.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is A+, pretty good.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

This solution provides enterprise-level features at a fraction of the cost of an enterprise firewall.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
