pfSense Review

The product is stable although there were some small problems with setting up the modules.

Valuable Features:

  • Firewall rules 
  • Modules, e.g. Squid

Improvements to My Organization:

It was very useful for our DHCP network (guests) and web browsing filtering.

Room for Improvement:

I think the product has improved greatly, so I actually don't know.

Use of Solution:

I've used it for one year.

Deployment Issues:

No, it's very easy to deploy.

Stability Issues:

Absolutely not, as the product is stable like a rock.

Scalability Issues:

No need to scale in.

Customer Service:

We've used the community version.

Previous Solutions:

We have WatchGuard Firewall and pfSense firewall.  They are used together and not as a substitution.

Initial Setup:

We just had some small problems with setting up the modules.  However, there was lots of documentation available online so there were no problems at all.

Implementation Team:

We implemented it in-house.


Well it was great as I didn't need to buy a new firewal..

Cost and Licensing Advice:

Close to zero, because we've used an internal server for it.

Other Solutions Considered:

No other options were evaluated.

Other Advice:

It's a good product, and it really could be a valid firewall solution.
