Endian Firewall 2.3 Includes Lots of New Features

,----[ Quote ]
| On October 27th, Christian Graffer from the 
| Endian team proudly announced the immediate 
| availability of the Endian Firewall Community 
| 2.3 Linux-based operating system. The new 
| version includes a lot of bug fixes, 
| improvements and many new and breathtaking 
| features. We, at the Softpedia Labs, took the 
| 2.3 release for a test drive and, among the new 
| features, we noticed the support for backups, a 
| dashbord, the VPN support, the SNMP support, e-
| mail notifications, policy routing, QoS, 
| intrusion prevention, and many more.



Securing your network premises with Endian

| Installation is easy; download the software, which is just a little more than
| 100MB in size. If you're planning to use it in production, stick with the
| stable version. Burn the image to a CD and boot from it. I used an old
| Pentium 4 1.6GHz box with 512MB of memory and 10GB of disk space, which
| worked fine.

| Endian's main advantage is its ease of use. The configuration is simple
| enough for most people to understand without asking for support. While Astaro
| and commercial applications can be more flexible, they're for the more
| technically inclined. Because Endian Firewall Community is licensed under the
| GPL, nothing prohibits its use for any purpose. Astaro, on the other hand, is
| limited to noncommercial use.
| Although Endian Firewall Community is not yet a complete UTM solution, I
| recommend it for organizations that want simple configuration and basic UTM
| security.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
