See and understand your network like never before:

  • Network flow detail
  • Blocked flows
  • Real-time throughput

    From smart speakers to baby monitor cameras, there is no shortage of technology in your home for hackers to exploit. Firewalla can protect your device automatically from cyber threats and alert you when it happens.

    • Active Protect: intrusion detection and prevention neutralizes attacks and threats before they happen
    • Behavior Analytics: analyze device action and detect abnormal behavior
    • Control: take control of your network with Firewalla’s powerful rules engine

    Blocking Countries off your Network

    Advanced GEO-IP Filtering

    With GEO-IP Filtering, a technology that can block network traffic from an entire country, you can effectively stop hackers from remotely attacking your business or home network.

    New Device Quarantine

    Protect your network by automatically placing new/unknown devices in a quarantine group. You can apply any content filtering or rate limit rules to this quarantine group.


    Identify security risks across your network, including open ports and weak passwords.

    Network Segmentation

    Network segmentation divides your network into regions with dynamic and static policies/rules. Purple SE supports VLAN-based segmentation.

    • Actively quarantine any device and restrict its behavior on the network
    • Segment important devices from the rest
    • Apply policies to manage segment-to-segment traffic
    • Great for creating a network for “work” and another for “kids”



    Make Your Privacy a Priority with VPN

    Are you comfortable sharing your data when using public Wi-Fi or traveling to regions where the internet is filtered or controlled? Introducing the Firewalla VPN server, a VPN server that runs inside of your home or business without charging a monthly fee.

    • Protect your privacy when using public Wi-Fi
    • No monthly fee or bandwidth throttling
    • Surf the web virtually “at home” from anywhere
    • Bypass internet filtering and monitoring when traveling
    • Easy remote access to your work network
    • Supports both OpenVPN and WireGuard

    Securely Connect to Any Device

    VPN Client

    With Firewalla’s VPN Client, you can connect any devices in your network to OpenVPN, WireGuard, and AnyConnect-based services.

    • Connect any IoT devices like Apple TV to third-party VPNs
    • Remotely connect your home devices to another Firewalla 
    • Connect two sites together with a site-to-site VPN and access devices securely both ways

    Say Goodbye to Annoying Ads

    Website ads and trackers have been frustrating internet users for years. That’s why Firewalla's built-in ad blocker makes sure you don't see ads and the ads don't see you.

    • Block ads across all devices
    • DNS cache to speed up all other lookups

    Protect Your DNS

    DNS over HTTPS

    Traditionally DNS requests are sent in plain text between the client and the DNS server. DNS over HTTPS (DoH) sends DNS requests encrypted over HTTPS. It makes DNS exchange more secure and protects user privacy.



    Unbound is a validating, recursive, caching DNS resolver, installed locally on the Firewalla box, which helps increase your online privacy and security.

    NTP Intercept: Securely Sync Time

    Intercept NTP requests and process them locally on the Firewalla, reducing your network's risk exposure and saving bandwidth.

    • Put everything on a schedule

    Regulate Network Traffic The Smart Way

    Advanced Smart Queue + Rate Limit

    Advanced Smart Queue prioritizes traffic and reduces delays (buffer bloat) when your network is heavily loaded.  

    • Prioritize and rate limit applications, activities or network flows 
    • Control congestion and reduce buffer bloat

    Smart Routing

    Policy & Content-Based Routing (PBR) 

    PBR allows you to selectively route traffic based on a set of rules or the content type. For example, you can send all video traffic to a VPN Client or send all banking sites to a different WAN interface.
