"In this article I will introduce you to a few of the
commercially-supported open-source network security options
currently available in the marketplace today. With open-source
networking you can enjoy the benefits of lower costs, greater
security, flexibility, extensibility and full enterprise support.
Here are three examples.
"Endian: Endian is a feature-rich, unified threat management
(UTM) system that offers a stateful firewall, VPN (IPSec/OpenSSL),
gateway anti-malware, anti-spam, QOS/Bandwidth Management, IPS and
proxy functionality. It is available as a software solution to
build on your own hardware or a variety of optimized appliances
that scale to meet your network security needs. Like all other
competitive offerings in this space, the community edition offers
core functionality with the commercial version offering even more
features; plus commercial support."
