pfSense Review

An open source firewall solution with many valuable features, but there are some bias and network intrusion issues

What is our primary use case?

We use pfSense as a firewall and proxy server. We use it to apply different restrictions for different users from some data locations.

What is most valuable?

I mostly like all of it. Whatever we use is valuable.

What needs improvement?

There are some bias issues and some intrusions in our network that have to be addressed. So, we're thinking of changing this firewall to something like a professional hardware-enabled firewall.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with pfSense for many years now.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

pfSense is a stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

pfSense is a scalable solution. We have about 200 users in our company.

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to ten, I would give pfSense a seven.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
