Secure networks start here.

Netgate believes in enhancing network connectivity that maintains both security and privacy. We also believe everyone should be able to afford it. Netgate directly supports and contributes to open source networking, secure IoT and firewall initiatives while also developing new high throughput secure networking technologies for the cloud and the IDIoT (Inherently Dangerous Internet of Things).

We develop solutions that leverage our decades of experience in networking, security, open source, embedded, software and hardware engineering. We are breaking down the cost barriers to bring connectivity with security and privacy to everyone. Our security applications and solutions, such as open source pfSense, microBMC and Netgate systems provide real world protection for networks of all sizes. You can be confident your networks are secure.

Netgate is:

  • The host of the pfSense open source firewall project. Netgate contributes leadership, engineering, test, and infrastructure assets to the project. pfSense has more than 500,000 active installs, supporting every size network from the home to small governments on all seven continents (yes, even Antarctica.)
  • The source for deep domain expertise in Unix, networking, computer security, embedded software development and system development. Our “open source” roots reach back to the 1980s, and we are well known within the BSD networking and security communities.
  • The developer of a popular family of low-power, high-throughput networking platforms from micro-sized form factor to small rack-mount systems.
  • Well placed with unique development partnerships that provide ready access to new chip technology releases and opportunities to steer the course for both hardware and software components of future communication platforms.

These assets are significant in that they contribute to solving a core technology issue that will remain for years to come: Securing a growing range of Internet-facing networks
