Overall Satisfaction with pfSense

pfSense is used as a security appliance for numerous applications and addresses the problems it was designed to address. (Providing specifics relating to the implementation of security in a public forum is a really bad idea. Asking people to disclose details relating to the deployment of security devices on the network is a really bad idea.)
  • It secures things!
  • It blocks bad things.
  • It is easy to configure.
  • Nothing really. The developers fix thing pretty quickly. They might want to run some vulnerability scanners against a device and fix those minor issues.
  • No impact really. Being open source, you can deploy on commodity hardware so it is very cost-effective.
Neither of the Cisco devices are designed to compete. pfSense does tons more.
It's a great feature rich solution for securing networks.
