T he dynamic firewall app allows an administrator to generate and implement very specific, time-based, firewall rules triggered off events. For example, rather than opening up ports for SSH or OpenVPN to the entire Internet, the Dynamic Firewall app can be configured to open these ports after a user authenticates via Webconfig (ideally, using two-factor) from the source IP of the user logging on.

The open framework allows admins or app developers to extend the functionality and create custom rules for other applications.
In summary, the Dynamic Firewall app allows you to reduce your network's risk exposure while still providing essential services to remote users.
