7 year anniversary of pfSense

7 years ago today, the name pfSense was settled on, and pfsense.org/com/net domains were registered. It’s grown from the volunteer efforts of a handful of people, to one of the most widely used platforms in the world, with a whole team of people making a living working on the project thanks to our support and reseller customers. Thanks to everyone who makes the project possible, and here’s to the next 7 years and beyond!

    I have had the opportunity to be a pfSense user for all seven years, and I can say that it has been a real pleasure to watch the project develop into a real first-class project. Thank you for all of the hard work!

    When I stumbled upon pfSense (via M0nowall), when searching for a good firewall, a few years back I have never looked back. And pfSense has always been the product I use for reference when comparing others.
    And I always come back to pFSense.

    I have now finally moved into a standalone physical box and is planning to make it the primary within short.

    Thanks and keep up the excellent work. 🙂

    When is comes to firewalls and site-to-site vpns, pfsense has afforded us boilerplate reliability. keep up the good work.

    I followed the first time since the beginning of pfsense built. many benefits that I get. In its development, I believe if pfsense would be a firewall is the most complete and keep up to date security continues to evolve. And the main thing is pfsense will be an open source firewall is the most widely used in the world.

    There is no right word unless I say many thanks to all the teams that have built up pfsense since the beginning until now.

    Once again congratulations on the success of pfsense. Thank you.

    We use pfsense and it always performs as required. We have started to deploy version 2 this week, keep up the development. The stability of the vpn’s again helped a client who needed remote access in a DR scenario.
