pfSense Review

An incomparable stability is achieved with other firewall systems

What is our primary use case?

Firewall system for small, medium, and large data networks. It allows you to provide security to your environment: DMZ networks, LAN, WAN, etc. A very stable product that lasts over time, easy to understand, and administer.

How has it helped my organization?

With pfSense, an incomparable stability is achieved with other firewall systems. It is easy to use and has integrity with other systems, such as proxies and quality of service.

What is most valuable?


  • Stability
  • Integration with other systems
  • Easy assimilation of its features
  • Easy administration
  • Multiple network management tools
  • Load balancing
  • Multiple links
  • High availability, etc.

What needs improvement?

The connections should be shown in a more specific way, as Kerio Control does. It should integrate with LDAP, Active Directory, etc, to improve the way in which the traces and connections of each IP, or user connected through the firewall, are shown.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.
