OPNsense Solutions & Features
A stateful firewall is a firewall that keeps track of the state of network connections (such as TCP streams, UDP communication) traveling across it.
Two or more firewalls can be configured as a failover group. If one interface fails on the primary or the primary goes offline entirely, the secondary becomes active.
Traffic shaping (also known as “packet shaping”) is the control of computer network traffic in order to optimise or guarantee performance, lower latency, and/or increase usable bandwidth by delaying packets that meet certain criteria.
A caching proxy reduces bandwidth and improves response times by caching frequently-requested web pages. OPNsense also ads fine grained access control and category based webfiltering.
A Captive Portal allows you to force authentication, or redirection to a click through page for network access. This is commonly used on hot spot networks, but is also widely used in corporate networks for an additional layer of security on wireless or Internet access.
The inline IPS system of OPNsense is based on Suricata and utilises Netmap to enhance performance and minimize cpu utilisation. This deep packet inspection system is very powerful and can be used to mitigate security threats at wire speed.
A virtual private network (VPN) extends a private network across a public network, such as the Internet. It enables a computer to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if it is directly connected to the private network, while benefiting from the functionality, security and management policies of the private network.
Better safe than sorry, always keep an up to date backup of your configuration. It’s easy with OPNsense. Cloud backup supported with Google drive.
System Health offers a dynamic view on RRD data gathered by the system. It allows you to dive into different statistics that show the overall health and performance of the system over time.
Easy to use responsive design, accessible from a desktop pc, tablet and smart phone. All features offered by OPNsense are configurable through the responsive user interface.
OPNsense is equipped with a reliable and secure update mechanism to provide weekly security updates. Its plugin mechanism can be used to install additional packages and customisations.
