pfSense Gold Subscription is our $99 per year premium membership subscription program, designed to provide special benefits to our members while supporting ongoing development of the Open Source pfSense project. We hope this dual benefit will make Gold a program worth subscribing to.
The company behind pfSense has changed its name from BSD Perimeter to ESF. You will never guess what ESF stands for….. Electric Sheep Fencing.
