APU Guardian Gen2 (Desktop)

APU Guardian Gen2 (Desktop)



This product has been superseded by the A10 desktop.


The APU Guardian device is the choice where value meets performance in a desktop form factor. Ideal for small businesses, branch offices or SOHO users. This powerful Open-Source based product is available at a fraction of the cost of commercial, closed source, firewall solutions.

In addition to higher performance, the Gen2 features an AES-NI hardware encryption engine, not found on the original model. This can speed up operations such VPN connections (depending on configuration).

Pf store devices are easy to use, affordable and can meet or exceed those of commercial - often closed source - solutions.
Pre-loaded with OPNsense or pfSense, they include most if not more of the features available in expensive commercial firewalls. For the advanced user, they are also compatible with other Linux and BSD distributions.

Note: The Secure Digital storage version is not suitable for applications that require disk writes such as a proxy server. Consider our SSD version instead.
