High-Speed Routed IPsec

IPsec one pager view now


Are all of your applications in the same building as your users? Centralized data centers, cloud-based workloads, and remote sites all need secure, high-speed connectivity and routing flexibility. Routed IPsec solves those problems, but choose carefully! Getting to high speed IPsec can force organizations into vendor lock-in and exorbitantly expensive licensing. In our High Speed Routed IPsec brief, we show you how TNSR can give you the best price for performance, network agility, and deployment flexibility.







TNSR Now Available on Azure!

TNSR + Azure

TNSR delivers on the promise of cloud networking, with firewall, VPN and routing capabilities up to the maximum speed available. TNSR is available on the fastest Azure VMs. Right now, that's up to 30Gbps, but the cloud isn't standing still and neither is TNSR!

TNSR is a pure software networking solution that delivers 100 Gbps on the right hardware, so as bandwidth scales in the cloud, you'll be ready. Scale bandwidth, scale management, and build dynamic services to meet your needs with TNSR on Azure.



TNSR Support Overview


From branch office to enterprise — on-premises to cloud, our 24/7 global support team has you covered start to finish. 

First, access to the TNSR community forums is free. The forums serve as a watering hole where questions and issues can be directly addressed by knowledgable users and Netgate staff. Additionally, full TNSR documentation and our product resource library are free. These information sources provide in-depth guidance on both what you can do with TNSR and how to do it.

Access to our Technical Assistance Center (TAC) professionals is included in all TSNR software subscriptions. TNSR Business and TNSR Business Plus both offer direct access to TAC personnel, but are differentiated by Service Level Agreement (SLA) and communications channel.

SG-1100 Back in Stock


1100 back in stock


The SG-1100 is Netgate’s replacement for the highly successful SG-1000 and we were overwhelmed by the initial orders. We are now fully restocked and fulfilling current orders and can't wait to get them in the hands of our customers. 

If you are not aware of how the SG-1100 compares in terms of performance, be sure to look back at the "Netgate’s New SG-1100 Punches WAY Above Its Weight" blog from January.

Again congrats to Steven and thanks to all for your participation.
