Difference Between Blue and Red
Speed and Power
While the Firewalla Red was optimized for affordability, the Blue is optimized for power and speed. Faster processor and more memory to handle the network traffic and attacks at near gigabit speed.
Firewalla Blue is based on the same software as Firewalla Red. The same software that’s been protecting families across 57 countries around the world.
Both boxes can be managed using the same App, there is no change.
New Software Features on Blue:
- VPN Client: Connecting two Firewalla’s or connect to your favorite VPN provider.
- Deep scanning: More modules in memory to scan the network.
- Ability to scale to more devices.
- Stores more historical data.
- Active Protect Advanced Block List: More protection by default.
The Power of Gigabit
The Heart of Blue
The Blue will allow all of these wonderful security features to run at greater than 500 Mbits. With each new release, we are hoping to increase this performance with software optimization.
How Does Firewalla 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 service to block before bad things happen.
- Behavior analytics: See things from a different angle.
- Control: This is where you tell us what to do. Block ads? Block porn? Stop kids from social networks?
- Where are the flows from? What country?
- What website, or IP address?
- Which device is sending?
- How much traffic?
- When was the transfer?
- Are they gaming? Watching porn? Or using social networks?
Firewalla provides full visibility to your devices and networks. Our packet processor will try to make sense out of the flows on the network without invading your privacy. It can detect activities such as video, gaming, porn, malware and the ability to “zoom” all the way to IP addresses. Some of these features you can only find in professional tools, and they will cost hundreds of dollars.
Utilizing deep insight and our unique cloud-based behavior analytics engines, Firewalla can actively detect problems (intrusion detection) and automatically block (intrusion prevention) them if needed once detected.
Our unique behavior analytics engine will capture the “strange” behaviors to prevent future attacks. “Who is doing the large upload to this IP address?”
Always in Control
Armed with visibility from deep insight, Firewalla gives you full control of your network, from blocking web pages, cutting off access to devices, blocking sites by category type: Gaming, Social, Video, Porn, Gambling, P2P, and even blocking ads. You will always be in control.
“Add a Firewalla to your network and you can see and manage all network devices and their actions. There’s lots for techies to love in this tiny box, but even the average user can benefit.”
“Firewalla may be small, but it packs a powerful security punch, automatically blocking a host of network dangers and giving you plenty of handy extras. ”
