VPN Firewall Routers
Our firewall routers provide the flexibility to match your needs, while offering the highest level of security available. Based on the IPFire software appliance, security is maintained by constant peer review, and our low power, passively-cooled version operates at an impressive 1/2 watt of power consumption.
After several tests of other distributions, IPFire was chosen for its flexibility, ongoing development, and most of all, its unrelenting search for the most secure system available. After that decision was made, we chose the Soekris Net5501-70 router unit from Soekris Engineering for its small footprint, low power usage and excellent reliability.
We also use the Foxconn barebones workstations for lower price and their ability to handle greater loads and the less expensive 3.5 inch hard drives though, with many mechanical parts they use more power and have an assumed shorter life time.
