        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
