Manage all your firewalls from one location
If you’re an IT services provider, or just a one-person show but need to maintain several devices, Mudmap has your covered.
I did this myself and I grew tired of it so I started Mudmap. It’s now possible to register many or all of your managed pfSense firewalls using this platform.
As a one-person shop, or even a huge organisation some common questions might arise.
- How secure is this?
- What does it look like?
- Are there limitations
Secure but internet facing
To remotely access firewalls, either it will need to be accessible over SSH or a VPN. Mudmap uses SSH as its transport layer, and will only do so using public key authentication.
It does not lock you into using port 22 - you can pick whatever port suits you.
Lastly, Mudmap creates its own user on the firewall and does not allow access to anything other than its API. Access to the API also requires authentication between Mudmap’s server and the device API. No two devices share API credentials.
Multiple devices displayed in one page
Once a device is connected to our servers, it will be able to read and update information on the firewall.
Mudmap provides a convenient interface to view all connected devices at a glance, get the version and online status of each device. It is a near real-time service, designed to provide great visuals without any impact to the firewall’s performance.
It is also possible to view a firewall in detail. Mudmap offers a familiar feel and layout to the traditional pfSense user interface. All major functionality found in a devices user interface also exists in the detailed view within Mudmap’s dashboard.
Put simply, Mudmap is the ideal solution for managing multiple firewalls across many customers.
