Endian Firewall Community (EFW) is a “turn-key” linux security distribution that turns every system into a full featured security appliance with Unified Threat Management (UTM) functionality. The software has been designed with “usability in mind” and is very easy to install, use and manage, without losing its flexibility.
The features include a stateful packet inspection firewall, application-level proxies for various protocols (HTTP, FTP, POP3, SMTP) with antivirus support, virus and spam-filtering for email traffic (POP and SMTP), content filtering of Web traffic and a “hassle free” VPN solution (based on OpenVPN).
EFW is a pure Open Source solution:Â Endian promotes its development, working with the Open Source community to build a complete, secure and stable firewall exclusively from Open Source software.
Public forum, rapid progress, open process, open minds, open to new ideas:Â EFW representsÂ a proving ground for new technology that may eventually make its way into stable and supported Endian UTM Appliance.
