Firewall Builder V4.2 Released!

NetCitadel is happy to announce the release of Firewall Builder V4.2. There are a lot of exciting new features in V4.2, here's a quick sampling:
  • Import of Cisco ASA/PIX/FWSM configurations. It's now easier than ever to get started using Firewall Builder to manage your Cisco firewalls.
  • De-duplication of objects during import. Firewall Builder checks to see if the objects you are importing match objects that are already in the database. This works for importing of all supported platforms.
  • Configuration generation for the latest Cisco ASA software versions (Cisco ASA v8.4).
  • Advanced system configuration, including bridge interfaces and static routing, for BSD-based firewalls.
  • Much more...
You can find the full release notes on our website.

Stay tuned for information about the new features we have planned for the next release of Firewall Builder. If you have large numbers of firewalls to manage we think you'll be excited about what we have planned...

Hi, I found the Firewall Builder through a link on and I have to say this is an excellent piece of software. I manage a few Linux firewalls and this software takes the tedium out of iptables/netfilter. I use the Shorewall firewall most of the time because of its ease of use. However setting up the original configuration is always the most time consuming. Firewall Builder really speeds up the setup time for odd ball configurations. I look forward to the many versions to come. thanks.
