OPNsense Previous Solutions

We are using several VPN gateways. We are using our primary solutions in our company, making all the IT for the complete caller group. The caller group has around about 1,600 people in 10 companies. They are part of this group. We have one, main office and several branch offices. We are using Juniper SSG Firewalls for Site2Site IPsec connections to customers and this Equipment is working really good. Unfortunately this devices will be running out og supprot soon, so we have to look for some alternatives. The central equipment we use is Sophos UTM/SG and Sophos XG configured as high availability. The branch offices are connected by Sophos RED and we mainly use Sophos RED 50 with the AP 55 access points configured as WPA2 Enterprise. For central management, everything is managed in the main office. We are using SMTP proxy with anti-span and anti-virus on SG solutions. This is the only one that doesn't work because we have a problem in that our exchange users are too many, and there are too many accounts - this fact caused the Appache runnig out of ressources. An example would be if you have one workstation with two smartphones, and each person has maybe three or four sessions opened on the exchange. If you have 1,400 accounts, you can reach 8,000 sessions. If the Appache message scoreboard is full is comming up, no further users can connect. We have contacted Sophos support to solve this but they were not able to do this - the only effect was a correction of the sizing guide from Sophos. View full review »

Previously, we used the Fortinet FortiGate switch because of the devices we have. They were limited to maybe 100-200 MB and were slowing down very drastically with Fortinet. For many different reasons and because I need to do IP implementation that was not very compatible with our VPN, we switched. Now we have no problem integrating the VPN. We switched to this open source solution and so far we are happy with it. View full review »

I used to use pfSense. I switched because OPNSense is modern and new. The graphic interface is good. And sometimes pfSense is not stable. Sometimes it breaks the line and stops. View full review »

We did previously use another solution, but I don't recall the name. We didn't like the performance we were getting out of it. View full review »
