The free VMware firewall includes the same functionalities and performance as VMware's vShield Zones, however it is free and offer s the possibility to add additional security features. Astaro is offering the free VMware firewall to fill the gap left by VMware in their free virtualization tool.

This tool, used by many small and medium sized businesses, allows these organizations to create virtual environments but does not offer security functionality. Only the larger virtualization tools offered by VMware include these security features and these installations are often oversized for a small or medium sized business whose virtualization needs are met by the smaller installations.
