It brings the rich feature set of commercial offerings with the benefits of open and verifiable sources combined with a simple BSD license. This makes OPNsense the platform of choice for users, developers and commercial partners.
Companies that want to use OPNsense to create a branded version, extend its features, or even create a fork and build upon the same codebase are allowed to do so under the 2-clause BSD license.
The large feature set OPNsense includes several high-end features like load balancing, high availability and captive portal. The modern and easy-to-use Bootstrap based user interface makes configuring and managing the firewall a comfortable task for administrators. And maybe the best part; All sources and build tools are freely available without special clauses and without licensing costs.
