TNSR Coming Soon

We are excited to announce that in the coming days, we will be going live with Our goal is to make your go-to destination for all things TNSR. The new website will provide more information around TNSR itself, features, client applications, and pricing.


TNSR Applications

TNSR Application Overview-1The belief that high-speed packet processing requires specialty hardware in order to help companies realize great performance and scale is being demolished by open source software. TNSR leverages’s Vector Packet Processing and other open source projects to create a solution that meets and exceeds the secure networking needs of enterprise customers and service providers. With the custom application overview, you can get a closer look into how some of our customers are utilizing the power of TNSR.


What is VPP
VPP Simplified-1

Powered by the open source project, VPP delivers up to two orders of magnitude greater packet processing throughput. But what exactly is VPP and how can it help
your organization? Netgate has created a solution brief that will cove the four key points you need to know about VPP:

  1. VPP makes packet processing really fast
  2. VPP makes packet processing easily programmable and can be integrated into existing or new secure networking ecosystems
  3. VPP can be deployed virtually anywhere
  4. VPP is a project, so unless you are a DIY-type, you’ll want to look for a fully functional, tested product like TNSR.

pfSense® Software and Appliances

Recommended Update for pfSense

We have incorporated fixes for some recently identified vulnerabilities, specifically:

You can read more on how to apply these security fixes in this blog post.


Update on pfSense 2.5

pfSense 2.4.5 snapshots have been shut down so that we can prepare for the master branch to be switched over to pfSense 2.5.0 running on FreeBSD 12.x. The version bump to 2.5.0 was warranted due to the operating system moving to a new major version. This post on the Netgate forum will cover the major details on the next release of pfSense that you need to know. We encourage you to register for your free forum account so that you can stay up to date with all things pfSense.
