Murus unleashes the great power of the macOS built-in PF firewall. Protect your network resources using a very simple interface, take advantage of the many pro features available to design and implement your network infrastructure, to monitor performances and proactively filter dangerous traffic at network layer.
Murus is available in three different versions in order to meet everyone’s needs.
And there’s even more: port knocking, adaptive firewall, NAT and many other features including a blazing-fast logging system.
Vallum is an application-layer firewall designed to protect your privacy intercepting outbound connections from your apps. Using its very simple yet powerful interface you can forge your firewall ruleset simply dragging apps icons. Pro users will be able to create fully customized rulesets using the power of AFW, the core of Vallum, using a logic and a syntax very similar to PF. Additionally, Vallum allows a per-app bandwidth tuning, so you can save time and money on your limited mobile data plans. And Vallum is also able to perform controls over the authenticity of your apps and certificates, so you are always sure if an app is legit or not.
Vallum voted the Best Mac Firewall by MacUpdate Community
Scudo is a hybrid firewall that combines the most basic features of both Murus and Vallum, everything in one single window. Aimed at simplicity, its super-easy interface allows literally everyone to configure a firewall. Scudo only window is divided in two:
- Left side, the “Murus” side, is where you define inbound rules at network layer, protecting your shared resources like shared documents, screen or printer, and tuning your inbound bandwidth.
- Right side, the “Vallum” side, is where you allow or deny outbound connections from your apps and where you can set per-app bandwidth limits and verify apps authenticity and certificates validity.
Scudo is an alternative to both Murus and Vallum and can be used only on systems where Murus and Vallum are not installed.
