Product Description

The Netgate AMI for pfSense on AWS delivers advanced routing, firewall, and VPN functionality for your cloud-based infrastructure at a lower total cost than other solutions. The pre-built pfSense AMI is identical in features to both the pfSense hardware appliances and the pfSense image for VMware available from Netgate. A complete list of features can be found on our website at https://www.pfsense.org/about-pfsense/features.html . The Netgate pfSense AMI includes the same features as the more expensive and proprietary, security gateway solutions. Unlike many closed-source solutions, we also don't set artificial restrictions or limitations on features such as VPN tunnels, firewall rules, failovers, ports or users. You get unrestricted access to these features at no additional cost, saving your company money as you grow. With Netgate's solution, you can easily share data or applications from VPC to VPC by creating multiple, secure VPN connections between regions. The pfSense AMI can also be used for secure remote access and Layer-2 cloud bridging to remote offices and road-warriors using peer to peer tunnel operation with compatible devices, including other instances of pfSense. In all cases, pfSense provides the best value and security for your AWS-based infrastructure. Sign up now and put the power of Netgate's pfSense solution to work for your company and benefit from better functionality at a better TCO.
