Firewalla is a vital security addition to every home and small business with network and IoT devices.

Imagine yourself settling in for a nice, quiet evening. You go to check on the sleeping baby and out of the corner of your eye you catch the baby camera turn towards you...somebody else is watching. Hackers are like a burglar constantly checking all your doors and windows looking for a way to sneak in.

Firewalla can help you to secure and manage your personal network, discover vulnerable IoT devices. Firewalla has the ability to discover devices that are open and can be infected (or already) by the Mirai virus.

Security Scanning

1. Inside scan, find all the devices that may be infected with Mirai virus or can be infected with it.
2. Outside scan, search for ports that are open from the Internet side.

This app will also control the Firewalla Box.

The app and device are awesome

The app and the devices are awesome. But their support of routers is not as good as they rate in their support page. I had an eero v1 which is not supported and upgraded to the ubiquity AmpliFi Instant which is certified as fully compatible, yet performance for monitored devices of the firewalla blue is well below 25Mbps. For device thanI turn off monitoring of, I do get my full WiFi performance. Keep this in mind and make sure to have a fully compatible router. Don’t just pick one off the compatible list. But verify compatibility with the Firewalla staff.

Easy to setup and use while still a powerful firewall

I have used the Firewalla Gold for about 6 months. It was easy to setup and configure and offers a number of security features to help protect my family and IoT. The company continues to expand the features on this device making it more powerful and useful by the month.

For anyone looking to get a solid firewall for protection from threats and unwanted internet pages, there is no better choice than the Firewalla line of equipment. If you are more of a power user and need additional bandwidth and high availability, I would recommend the Firewalla Purple. For those needing network segmentation, high availability, and multiple GB of bandwidth, take a look at the Firewalla Gold.

This is not a paid review and Firewalla did not entice this review in any way.

Great Firewall, simple to use, but powerful

If you want to protect your network and have great visibility into what is going on under the hood, Firewalla is a great solution. It’s easy to install and shows all the devices connected to that network. For each device you can see the traffic and where they are connecting to. You can limit access to the Internet, gaming, porn, social networks and videos. It supports both VPN server and client allowing remote network connections while limiting which devices can use that connection. Is supports DNS caching, encrypting DNS requests limiting your ISP ability to track what you are doing and supports ad blocking. Highly recommended
