So far, Nethserver has served to every need for a small business company.
Modules like:
Bandwidth monitor
Basic firewall
Deep packet inspection (DPI)
Intrusion Prevention System
Web filter
Web proxy

Has helped the company I work for, to be able to surf the network securely and smoothly. We're currently migrating other services into Linux and Nethserver is still our problem solver.

Very good supported out-of-the-box all-in-one linux-server, mail groupware, ad, cloud, proxy and so on.
Every module can be installed with one click if it is needed.

Great and very helpful community.
