    We dropped a few hints about an ESPRESSObin-based product a few months back. It’s here. Today Netgate announced the SG-1100 pfSense Security Gateway Appliance. It replaces our highly popular (but no longer available) SG-1000 - and delivers a 5x performance gain.

    At only $159, this product is perfect for Small Office Home Office (SOHO), home lab, virtual office, small to medium business, corporate branch office, and remote worker applications, It will even be popular with Managed Service Providers and Managed Security Service Providers.

    We know Reddit readers like to get right down to business. See our product page for all specs. Want the performance story? Check out this blog post.

    Whether you’re an existing Netgate appliance user or shopping for a great 1 Gbps secure networking gateway, you’ll want to give the SG-1100 a close look.



  • Now this is more like it. Something for home use that is actually affordable.



  • Does "Captive portal with MAC filtering, RADIUS support, etc" on the future list mean SG-1100 has FreeRADIUS package?

    And does it have suricata package?

    The Captive Portal reference is about Captive Portal using some other RADIUS server to authenticate. Though the SG-1100 does have the FreeRADIUS3 package, the sentence you quoted does not establish that.

    And does it have suricata package?

    It does, but at this time the platform used by the SG-1100 (aarch64) does not have a working rust compiler on FreeBSD, so some of the new features available in Suricata will not work. I believe that is being worked on upstream in FreeBSD.



  • Thanks for your reply.

    Will that support a mini PCI LTE Modem, such as Huawei ME906?
