The YMCA of Central Ohio was in need of a reliable firewall solution for each of their 22 area locations. In addition to individual firewall PCs in the field, the YMCA needed a centralized rackmount server to manage their entire network. In the midst of switching to a new ISP, their IT team went looking for a cost-effective, ultra-dependable hardware solution that was compatible with the pfSense® software firewall software they intended to use.
As one of Central Ohio’s leading nonprofits, committed to the betterment of young people through a wide range of development programs, the Central Ohio YMCA network comprises 22 activity centers offering volunteer opportunities, health and wellness educational programs, fitness classes, leadership training and a wide range of other resources to the surrounding communities.
