Review: CUJO Smart Firewall Is Your New Internet Guardian

You have locks on your doors and windows. You even have an alarm on your car. Are you going to let some cyber-punk sneak into your life through your internet connection? CUJO Smart Firewall could be your new home internet guardian. This device is available at your local Best Buy or online right here.

Meet CUJO Smart Firewall. It is easy to install and features business-level security for all of your devices. In fact, most people can install it in about five minutes from opening the box. Check out this short installation video:

Your home is full of smart devices even some of your light bulbs these days. They are not protected by antivirus software, which is making your home a target for cyber criminals. CUJO Smart Firewall secures everything from smartphones and laptops to TVs, baby monitors, doorbells and light bulbs. You can control most all of the features right from the app on your smartphone.

The fully featured smartphone app is easy to learn. CUJO will “discover” all of the devices connected to your system on its own. Then, you can rename, arrange in categories, create profiles and customize your usage in all sorts of ways. Some things may actually show up as different or crazy names but you can easily change them to more recognizable monikers. My Dell XPS desktop actually showed up as Honn Hai Precision because that is who built the network card. No worries, I clicked edit and changed it in about a minute.

CUJO Smart Firewall ReviewStraight from the manufacturer: “CUJO is a smart firewall for the connected home, designed to bring business-level security to the home network. This one device will secure all devices connecting to the WiFi router. CUJO detects and blocks malicious sites, viruses, and hacks. Think of it like antivirus for your entire network. Plus, CUJO lets you control what your kids access online and keep them safe.”
