Endian Firewall Community (EFW) is a "turn-key" linux security distribution that makes your system a full featured security appliance with Unified Threat Management (UTM) functionalities. The software has been designed for the best usability: very easy to install, use and manage and still greatly flexible.
The feature suite includes stateful packet inspection firewall, application-level proxies for various protocols (HTTP, FTP, POP3, SMTP) with antivirus support, virus and spam-filtering for email traffic (POP and SMTP), content filtering of Web traffic and a "hassle free" VPN solution (based on both OpenVPN and IPsec). The freshly released EFW 2.5.1 also features support for most modern UMTS/3G USB dongles, new configurable widgets for the dashboard, additional gateway options and several performance improvements.
