I was in a very tight jam and my tech stayed with me the entire time, was very professional, helpful, and encouraging. One of the best tech calls I've experienced in 30 years!

TNSR is lightning fast. And for us, activation and integration with our security sensors was a breeze. The docs are some of the best of any of the products we’ve seen. Very complete and easy to use.

TNSR as a 100 Gbps software router with that price-performance value? We haven’t seen that from anyone else.

Your tech support representatives answered my questions promptly and completely and even followed up with additional information regarding a planned purchase. Absolutely stellar support. I wish all tech companies were this good!

Business Development

Griffin C.

Literally the best support I've ever had with software support. Issue was escalated seamlessly and at the exact right spot in troubleshooting. Props to Danilo Z! Most company support chats end with no resolutions as I usually know more than the agent.

Been using pfSense for our firewall/IDS for 5 years across multiple sites for work in HA carp config and it is outstanding. Just does most things exceptionally well.

Heard about pfSense in 2010 and was absolutely stunned about how feature-rich it was. It was unbelievable! 8 years later I run 15 production firewalls running pfSense.
