Information is the most essential building block to businesses, thus having adequate control over it is indispensability for most. Such control allows for better security and overall administration for a company. The existing solution is to install a firewall to the root switch, enabling admins to manage traffic by interfacing with the firewall equipment. This paper proposes a light-weight and highly configurable firewall solution for small to mid-range businesses. Built on a Raspberry Pi, including a user-friendly interface, with little information individuals will able to configure and install the firewall to their businesses. The proper solution will enable high-level control over the desired ports and user groups. Access to potentially harmful information can effortlessly be moderated and  blocked if necessary.
