Netgate 8200 Firewall VPN Router pfSense+ If you need high-throughput firewall, routing, and VPN performance, look no further.

It is ideal for remote offices, edge deployments, managed service providers, and enterprise networks.

  • Over 80% greater firewall and VPN throughput than the Netgate 6100
  • Double the firewall performance and over 70% more VPN throughput than the outgoing Netgate 7100*

*  For more information, see our appliance comparison chart.


Experience the performance and business assurance expected from leading secure networking applications at a fraction of the cost of proprietary alternatives. Enjoy unlimited users, unlimited firewall rules, unlimited IPsec tunnels, dual WAN, etc. with no artificial limits and no additional usage or feature-based pricing.


Manage pfSense Plus software settings through our web-based GUI. No need to fumble with a command line interface or type commands.

An actively controlled cooling fan integrated into the chassis baseplate allows the unit to remain uncharacteristically quiet for such a powerful 1U system and the Intel Atom processors are designed for low power consumption.

The equipment is excellent. I just dislike that use this Shop app. It’s garbage and I feel like Shop’s priority is up selling other products. Sadly I buy a lot of Netgate stuff and Shop annoys me each time. I’m close to just buying Netgate equipment from Amazon.
