    After working on Firewall Builder for many years it is with some sadness that Vadim and I are announcing that we have suspended all development activity for this project.  Firewall Builder has been a great project to work on and we have truly appreciated all the support and positive feedback that the user community has provided.  Without you we wouldn’t have been able to keep things going this long.

    You might be wondering why we are doing this…  We had an exciting opportunity come up to start a company developing advanced security automation solutions.  This was a chance of a lifetime that we just couldn’t pass up and unfortunately it means that we no longer have time available to work on improving and supporting Firewall Builder.

    Our company, NetCitadel, is developing a security orchestration platform for enterprise customers that brings real-time intelligence to existing security devices.  We will be announcing our first product very soon, but for now you can register for updates and find more information at

    Thanks for all your support over the years and we hope you continue to use and enjoy Firewall Builder.

    Looks like its time to pull down the source and roll up my sleeves.

    Thanks again for such an excellent product!!
