We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"This solution provides enterprise-level features at a fraction of the cost of an enterprise firewall."
"It is an open source firewall."
"We are using the open-source version, not the commercial one."
"It has almost zero cost, and it is open to us. It runs on a small appliance just for a couple of 100 bucks, and I've never had an appliance burn out on me yet."
"It is open source."
"I spent a couple of $1,000 on hardware, and the OS was free. A comparable firewall would cost me probably 20 grand. It saved a lot of money."
"I like the fact that it is open-source."
"pfSense is open-source, but the support is something that the customer pays for."
