Why was the I.T. engineer in the hospital? He touched the firewall! It’s Ok, boo me off the stage!
All jokes aside, ACTS Group regularly recommends pfSense as our firewall/router solution to current and new clients. pfSense is developed and supported by Netgate, but pfSense is open source so the total cost of ownership is usually just the hardware you decide to run it on. In fact, we’ve actually replaced Cisco ASA solutions with pfSense because the church found that the annual maintenance for the Cisco solution was just too costly. Recently, Netgate approached ACTS Group and asked to use our pfSense implementations in their case study. I’ll keep this blog post short, and drop a link to the Netgate article below. It’s well worth the read.
