      How Does Firewalla Cyber Security Work?

       Firewalla's main packet processing engine has four different stages:

      • Deep Insight: Make sense of all network traffic.  Dig deep and understand what they are.
      • Active Protect: Intrusion detection services to detect bad things and Intrusion prevention services to block before bad things happen.
      • Behavior analytics: See things from a different angle.
      • Control: This is where you tell us what to do.  Applying sophisticated rules to control traffic flows.

      From smart speakers to baby monitor cameras, there is no shortage of technology in your home for hackers to exploit. Firewalla sends automatic alerts and protects your devices from cyber threats.

      • Detect, prevent and block active cyberattacks and intrusions
      • Monitor for abnormal trends through intelligent behavior analytics
      • Actively block malicious sites in real-time
      • Continuously scan your home for security vulnerabilities and risks

      New Device Quarantine

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

        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.

        • Only allow school sites to be accessed
        • Only allow access to the company network and email
