pfSense Review

Is stable and easy to install

What is most valuable?

It is a stable solution. It is also easy to install and can be deployed and maintained by one team member.

What needs improvement?

pfSense has some limitations in detecting site sessions. We want to control internet usage based on sites and their content, and pfSense doesn't perform this function.

The site itself could be improved; it's not easy to find the things that you want to implement and apply.

It would be good if it had more features like Sophos does.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using pfSense for two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is a stable product.

How was the initial setup?

The installation was easy. I was able to install it in two hours maximum. Only one person is needed for deployment and maintenance.

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

Currently, we don't pay for a license.

What other advice do I have?

We have fifty users in our organization, and I can recommend pfSense. On a scale from one to ten, I would rate it at eight.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
