Endian Firewall is a "turn-key" linux security distribution that changes every system into a full featured Unified Threat Management (UTM) appliance. Forked from IPCop to reflect Endian Firewall's new functionality, this software has been designed with "usability in mind". It is very easy to install and administrate without losing flexibility.
The features include a Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) firewall, application-level proxies for various protocols (HTTP, FTP, POP3, SMTP) with antivirus support, virus and spam filtering for e-mail traffic (POP and SMTP), content filtering of Web traffic, Intrusion Detection System (IDS), and a "hassle free" VPN solution (based on OpenVPN). The main advantage of Endian Firewall is that it is a pure open source solution that is commercially supported by Endian.
Endian Firewall has the goal of 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. A proving ground for new technology that may eventually make its way into Endian's Enterprise edition.
