Firewall as a Service (FWaaS) - OPNsense Firewall, High-end Security Made Easy™
OPNsense provides Precept IT’s security clients with more features, more reliability and more performance than any other commercial firewall product we had in use ever before. Being open source, we have full access regarding update plans and so on.
OPNsense includes most of the features available in expensive commercial firewalls, and more in many cases. It brings the rich feature set of commercial offerings with the benefits of open and verifiable sources.
One of the headline features of OPNSense is the support for high availability and IP address failover. This functions in a similar but more secure manner to Cisco VRRP or HSRP, allowing your firewall to stay fully operational in the event of a hardware failure without any interruption to client connections.
When you cannot afford downtime use our automatic and seamless hardware failover with state synchronization utilizing the common address redundancy protocol (CARP) to get the highest possible availability.
Stateful firewall with support for IPv4 and IPv6 and live view on blocked or passed traffic.
Multi WAN capable including load balancing and failover support.
A strong focus on security and code quality drives the development of the product.
OPNsense offers weekly security updates with small increments to react on new emerging threats within in a fashionable time. A fixed release cycle of 2 major releases each year offers businesses the opportunity to plan upgrades ahead. For each major release a roadmap is put in place to guide development and set out clear goals.
