pfSense Firewall Log Auditing

Firewalls continuously monitor the incoming and outgoing traffic through a network, and based on the defined set of rules, it either blocks or allows access. pfSense is an open source firewall and router based on FreeBSD. It is commonly deployed on a physical computer or a virtual machine to act as a perimeter firewall, router, wireless access point, and virtual private network (VPN) endpoint.
