Meet Firewalla Blue

Firewalla is an all-in-one, simple, and intelligent firewall that connects to your router, protects your devices from cyberattacks, and provides you with rich insights about your network.  (There is no monthly fee)


Designed by a team of former Cisco engineers to secure the world.

In 2017, we introduced Firewalla Red through Kickstarter and Indiegogo; this year, we are introducing Firewalla Blue. The Blue is designed to be powerful, perfect for consumers and businesses who need the extra protection. Blue will be able to examine network traffic at near Gigabit speed and has enough power to protect more complex devices.

Simple & Sophisticated

Cybersecurity shouldn’t be complicated and intimidating. We believe with the right software, cybersecurity can be made as simple as tapping on a few buttons.  Most of our features are just that, one tap away.

And for sophisticated power users:

  • See and dissect network flows of any device
  • Upgrades automatically.
  • SSH access and Full Linux Distribution inside for the curious.
  • Lots of knobs for customization.




Business and professional users often demand faster Internet that approaches gigabits, and at the same time run complex devices far beyond that of a simple thermostat.   Our challenge is how to make Firewalla Simple, affordable and Powerful for the future.  Powerful enough to examine packets and detect intrusions at near gigabit speeds.


Difference Between Blue and Red

Speed and Power

While the Firewalla Red was optimized for affordability, the Blue will be optimized for power and speed. Faster processor and more memory to handle network traffic and attacks at near gigabit speed.  

Firewalla Blue will be based on the same software as Firewalla Red. The same software that’s been protecting families across 57 countries around the world.   

Both boxes will be using the same App, there is no change.   There will be changes in the cloud to provide more complex security intel for these newer devices.



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 near gigabit speeds.  Why near gigabit?  Our current code is able to do 400 to 500 Mbits, and by the time we deliver, we should be closer to gigabit speed. 




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?



Deep Insight

  • 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.


Active Protect

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

No longer will you need to pull the power cord from the router, Firewalla gives you full control of your network.  You tell it what to do, and it will do it. 


Multiple Firewalla’s on the Same App

Want to be the Chief Information Officer of the family?  Owns a small business? The Firewalla App allows you to manage multiple Firewalla boxes at the same time!  Right at your fingertips.


Open & Extensible

  • Firewalla is open source,  so you will always know what we are doing to your data.   
  • Our open platform is expandable, so expect more fun features in the future.
  • Powered by intelligent cloud and love, we protect you in the cyberspace.





    Firewalla started as a Kickstarter Project and then later joined Indiegogo in 2017.  The Red box raised over 400% of initial goal, and we delivered that project  late 2017 and early 2018.  Our slogan was “Making Cyber Security Simple and Affordable”. The Red box is now available on Indiegogo Market Place, Amazon, Newegg Business, and in Brookstone stores.

    Now we need your help to create an even higher performing product to join Firewalla Red, making Cyber Security Simple, Affordable and Powerful.




    “Add a Firewalla to your network and you can see and manage all network devices and their actions. There are lots for techies to love in this tiny box, but even the average user can benefit.”

    4. Questions or Help?  email: [email protected]


    Progress Tracker

    • (update 12/17/2018)  We just entered production, units delivering soon!

    • We will be leveraging the same software stack as RED, which is already in use in 80+ countries around the world.
    • Android and iOS apps are already out and they will work with both Red and Blue.



    Is there a monthly fee?


    What is “near gigabit speed”?

    At the moment we don’t know how close to gigabit we can go.  If you have participated in our previous campaign, our style always been under promise and over deliver.  We decided to launch the campaign when we reached around 400 to 500 Mbits, and push as close to gigabit before and after we deliver the box. 

    So … we claim near gigabit, and promise to have >500 Mbits, and likely to deliver something higher.

    Will this replace my router?

    No, Firewalla is a dedicated security appliance attached to your router.  Firewalla is focused on security and control, and your router should focus on providing connectivity.

    What routers are compatible with Firewalla?

    Firewalla has two modes of operations, so it is likely your router will work with one of them.  Here is the detail list.

    Is Firewalla Blue replacing Firewalla Red?

    No. Firewalla Blue is more of a Pro version than a replacement. Although the pricing is low right now, the final retail price will be much more expensive. The Red will always be the more affordable version of the Firewalla family.

    Since majority software will be shared between the Red and Blue, we will take this campaign to upgrade Red software as well.  (So majority of changes in common software will show up in Red, only those consume more resources will be exclusively for the Blue box)

    Is this the real “Blue Box”?

    Yes. We are currently working with two vendors on the final Firewalla Blue board. One of them is what you see here, and another one may be a little bit bigger. Depending on how much we raise, it will be the one you see here, or a slightly larger/flatter board.  

    We do not build our own boards, we try our best to use existing boards with minor modifications. We will  continue to support open boards (boards that publishes their design and are open source). This helps us save money and lets us focus on the thing that we do best … software.  

    Is Firewalla Blue running the same software as Red?

    The platform layer (operating system + drivers + switching code) will be different; the Blue will have more packet processing enhancements. The platform independent layer is the same, and the app is the same. There will be specific features on the Blue (see software section).

    Some of our Firewalla Red supporters wanted a built-in VPN client, but unfortunately we were never able to get to it. We are going to use this crowdfunding to make that happen. The VPN client will also run on the Red.

    What are active protect entries?

    List of IP addresses that are bad … you should never visit them and they should never visit you.  (Example, vpnfilter’s stage 2 servers).   When IP addresses are on this list, they will be blocked by default.  

    Do I need Blue or Red?

    Get Blue if

    • You have or are planning to upgrade your Internet connection to be greater than 100 Megabits
    • You have many complex devices (PC/Linux/Android/iOS)
    • Business user
    • You want to install a bunch of other things on Firewalla

    Get Red if

    • If your network is less than 100 Megabits or you only monitor part of your network, you should get Firewalla Red. And if you can’t wait until February 2019.

    Where can I find more information on Blue?

    Send us an email [email protected] or visit our Blue specific community

    Can I just build this using xyz and run it on raspberry pi?

    Firewalla is an integrated solution with mostly our own software. It consists of code running on the Firewalla box, mobile apps, and also the cloud that makes each box just a bit smarter. This integration helps us build something that’s simple to use and powerful for professionals. And often, making things simple is not that “simple.”

    If you really want to run our software on your own board, we do sell developer licenses.  The code that runs on the Red/Blue box is published at
