    I'm thinking of replacing my Online Armor firewall with pfsense. However, I do rely on the anti-keylogger feature of Online Armor. Does pfsense have a similar feature embedded, or will I have to use separate software if I switch to pfsense?

    pfsense is an operating system, not a software firewall. You install it on a physical machine or VM that you want to use as a firewall. It's not a replacement for software firewalls on Windows.

    You can install snort on pfsense, which may pick up keyloggers, although I wouldn't rely on it. That said, I'd be pretty skeptical of Online Armour's ability to detect keyloggers..... :)
