It is an open source firewall.
I prefer appliance licensing with pfSense (Community Edition). * It's free. * It's very stable. * It's only on the hardware, it can be very fast. Choose the appliances because it is nice to have the hardware cut out for it, i.e. the right hardware for the right software.
It is completely free.
For the cost and what's included, you can't beat it, no way no how. If you're worried about enterprise solutions, the only thing you need to do then is to purchase a support contract, and you have an enterprise solution. You can even purchase hardware from the vendor if you choose.
All costs are low compared to other solutions. The hardware is stable and cheap. There is no licensing fee except for the enterprise support, if you want it.
It is a free solution.
It was straightforward to buy from pfSense.
