IT personnel are easily trained to install, configure, and operate pfSense Plus software—freeing time and energy for higher order responsibilities. As organizations grow - personnel will move, skill sets will shift, and IT complexity will increase. The last thing you need is a firewall, router or VPN outage that impedes business productivity or revenue - but it can (and does) happen. And, when it happens, fast problem resolution is everything.
