Active Protect


Firewalla is not just a passive device when it comes to monitoring the bad guys. It utilizes deep insight at the network flow level and our unique cloud-based behavioral analytics engine to actively monitor and detect suspicious connections 24x7. Suspicious connections are categorized into different levels. For the ones that are very sure to be "bad", Firewalla will automatically block the connection. Otherwise, an alert is raised and user is given the option to decide whether to block or not.

Active protect not just works for you at home. When you are on the road or at coffee shops, you can connect to the built-in VPN server on Firewalla to surf the internet as if you are at home with the same level of protection.
