By announcing this further step of business partnership, Landitec® and OPNsense® react to the recently observable growing impact of open source projects in various business fields worldwide. The fusion of hardware and open source firewall software appears to become a more and more indispensable feature for IT network infrastructures. “This partnership of OPNsense® and Landitec® reflects our desire to work with companies that share our vision on open source projects. This will benefit the OPNsense development and underscores our mission to become the most widely used open source security platform”, says Robert van Papeveld, CEO at Deciso® B.V.
The consistently enormous speed of development in IT is going to remain an endless challenge keeping networks up to date. The cooperation of Landitec® and OPNsense® opens the door to an easy, smooth and cost reducing transition of obsolete company networks, which have not been gaplessly digitalized yet.
The potential of open source applications let Landitec® decide to give open source projects their deserved attention by launching an own brand in this field. The fusion of Landitec’s scope7® and OPNsense® has therefore been the logical next step, an efficient symbiosis of network hardware and open source firewall software for nearly every company size. This hardware/open source software collaboration is a further evidence for the increasing demand of scalable and interoperable “all in one” appliance solutions, which underlines the necessity of such business cooperation.
scope7® is Landitec’s own brand for ready to use hardware appliances. Engineered to offer an ideal platform especially for open source software solutions, scope7® appliances can be deployed in small sized up to large enterprise purposes. Due to a set of appliances built with different components, the scope7® appliances are able to also match specifically tailored requirements. Already made pre-tests ensure a trouble-free process between hardware and software, saving valuable time. Due to its open source based software platform, users can profit from advantages such as saving license fees, open verification of software solutions, vendor independence and flexibility.
OPNsense® is an open source firewall and routing software platform. The community of this open source project aims to provide an easy-to-use application which simultaneously offers a range of features usually to be found in expensive commercial firewalls. OPNsense® is available without license costs and offers notably better price/performance ratio. The main intention of OPNsense® is to provide a user-friendly, reliable and transparent environment. The security platform comes with frequent updates and 2 major releases every year. OPNsense® is a Deciso® B.V. open source project.
