Our ever-growing product portfolio was still missing a trusted network router and VPN gateway as a counterpart to two-factor authentication using Nitrokeys. Here is NitroWall! Your firewall, intrusion prevention system (IPS) and VPN gateway. Trustworthy thanks to open source firmware and software. For professional users with professional requirements.
Firewall and Intrusion Prevention System (IPS)
Based on the powerful OPNsense, NitroWall meets all the requirements of a professional firewall and IPS such as multi WAN, hardware failover, routing protocols, web filtering, and two-factor authentication.
VPN gateway for IPSec and OpenVPN with powerful Intel Quadcore CPU with AES-NI for fast data throughput. Secure two-factor authentication via Nitrokey (instead of password) is possible with IPSec.
Open Source Firmware Coreboot
Instead of a proprietary BIOS, the NitroWall uses the open source firmware Coreboot, which offers transparency, minimal attack surface and high speed.
Unlike common ARM-based systems, NitroWall contains the powerful Intel Quadcore CPU J3160 with 1.6 GHz and AES-NI. 8 GB RAM, SSD and four Gigabit Ethernet ports provide sufficient resources.
- Unencrypted LAN: 940 Mbps
- OpenVPN AES256-GCM: 887 Mbps (UPDATED)
- IPSec AES128-GCM/AES-XCBC/AES128-GCM: 635 Mbps
Fanless, Rugged Metal Chassis
NitroWall features a small, rugged metal chassis. It does not require a fan, making it completely silent and virtually maintenance-free. In addition, NitroWall is very energy efficient.
Numerous Operating Systems
Instead of OPNsense, NitroWall can be operated with other operating systems such as pfSense, Ubuntu, Windows or Proxmox.
Robust Industrial PC
Thanks to its closed housing and compact size, NitroWall is also suitable as a robust industrial PC in combination with operating systems such as Ubuntu or Windows.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is NitroWall suitable as a replacement for my home router?
Generally not. NitroWall does not include a DSL or cable modem but requires network access via Ethernet. But NitroWall can be operated behind home routers. In addition, the configuration is aimed at professional users with appropriate prior knowledge.
