pfSense Review

Excellent at blocking problematic IP addresses

What is our primary use case?

My primary use case is for controlling incoming traffic from various countries and blocking IP addresses if necessary. I'm the company director and a user of pfSense.

What is most valuable?

A key feature is being able to block IP addresses. This is a good product and I have no issues with it.

What needs improvement?

I'd like to see some instructional videos as opposed to documentation. It would be helpful for beginners and start-up companies. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using this solution for a couple of months. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This solution is stable.

What other advice do I have?

It's worth giving this product a shot and testing it out because it's free and community based.

I would rate the community version a 10 out of 10.
