CUJO shields your home devices against hacks. CUJO network security firewall protects your computers and IoT devices against malware, ransomware, viruses, and other hacking threats. Think of it as advanced antivirus for all your connected devices - from laptops to smartphones. CUJO acts as an internet security gateway between your connected smart devices and the internet. CUJO sends packet header data (but, for your privacy, never full packets) to the cloud to analyze device behavior, compare your traffic to commercial internet security threat feeds, and make sure that unauthorized IP’s do not connect to your wired and wireless home network. CUJO network hardware firewall is blazing fast. 1GB Ethernet ensures that your network speed is unaffected by network security. CUJO connects to your wifi router in two modes: Direct connection using DHCP mode (automatic setup for most routers), or bridge mode for networks with several routers and/or modems.
Connect With Your Router
CUJO connects to your router using a provided ethernet cable. Once connected, it immediately begins protecting your internet devices. CUJO smartphone app will show all smart devices on your network. CUJO will send alert notifications when it blocks internet threats . If you need any support, CUJO support team is available by phone, in-app video call, or email. Our team will guide you through setup, step-by-step. CUJO can also send an installer to your home to provide white-glove setup service (US only). Advanced users: CUJO supports two main modes - DHCP and Bridge. In DHCP mode, CUJO will act as your DHCP server. In Bridge mode, CUJO will sit between your ISP router and your access point. CUJO connects with most standard routers such as Netgear, Eero, Linksys, D-Link, and TP-Link. CUJO also works with most ISP routers from Comcast, AT&T, Verizon, TWC, and others. CUJO is not compatible with Luma and does not support Google Wifi Mesh.
Business-Level Internet Security For Your Entire Network

A hacker can trick you into visiting a malicious phishing site to gain access to your email account. Hack your cameras and Internet of Things. Hack your network to steal photos. Antivirus software only protects your laptop and only against a limited type of cyber threats. VPN software will encrypt your communications, but it will not prevent hackers from accessing your devices. Exposed and unsecured devices mean it's a matter of when, not if, you will be hacked. CUJO adds wireless security and hacking protection for all your connected devices.
Top customer reviews
I've been on the market for a network firewall or Unified Threat Management (UTM) appliance for my home network/home office for the past two years, but could not decide because of expensive prices and complex user interfaces. High-end firewalls in the Gartner Magic Quadrant (i.e. Palo Alto Networks, Fortinet, Juniper, Cisco, Watchdog) easily cost upwards of $500 to $1000 for their smallest firewall hardware model and that doesn't even include the monthly/yearly maintenance and threat updates which could cost another additional hundreds of dollars per month. A lot of them had very powerful hardware, but very complex interfaces. I figured I did not need that robust of a firewall (enterprise-scale) anyway for my home network.
CUJO offers an affordable pricing model for the average consumer with hardware under $100 and monthly updates costing only $10 per month. I decided to opt to pay for $250 for the hardware with lifetime support (including maintenance, threat updates, patches, etc.) since I figured I'd get my money back within a couple years. In that time, I'd expect the product to continuing improving with new features and functionality.
Setup was easy in Bridge mode, which was required due to how my network is configured. CUJO works well with my Apple AirPort wireless router and Xfinity-provided gateway. After downloading the iPhone app and registering, CUJO downloaded the latest firmware automatically, rebooted, and started detecting devices on my network right away. I DID NOT have network speed issues with my CUJO setup that other users have reported with CUJO being a bottleneck on their network. Speedtest.net shows my bandwidth being the same before and after CUJO was installed on my home network, and I've retested as recent as this week and it is still the same.
After detecting my devices, CUJO allows you to manually edit each device entry, which was a nice touch to put meaningful descriptions instead of DHCP-pulled host names. CUJO has a database of device types, brands, and model numbers which can be manually edited, which was useful to classify my devices. CUJO also allows you to group your devices for categorization purposes (for example, I placed all my computers in one group, my network devices on another group, my A/V devices in another group, my home security/automation devices in another, and so on.
CUJO detected an unauthorized device on my network, which I suspected once before when I noticed an unauthorized iPhone attempt to AirPlay Mirror to my AppleTV. I could not find this device through network scans I performed (probably because the perpetrator disconnected from my network and randomly connects) even through I changed my wifi password a number of times. CUJO detected this unauthorized device and provides the MAC address, which I was able to manually block through MAC-address filtering on my Apple router (I reset the wifi password again). On CUJO, I was able to also disconnect the device from the internet in case the device somehow joins my wireless network again, which would effectively frustrate the offender joining the network not being able to connect to any computer or to the internet from my network. This unauthorized device has not joined my network since.
In my first week, I could not trip a Threat Alert on CUJO with the normal app usage and web browsing I do (I consider nearly all the sites and apps I use to be "safe", legitimate ones like social networking (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), popular shopping sites like Best Buy, Target, Amazon, news sites like CNN, New York Times, etc., bank and medical websites protected by HTTPS, etc. I finally was able to trip Threat Alerts and CUJO BLOCKED browser pop-ups when I was browsing some links on Reddit.
My second week of CUJO, the latest iPhone app software was pushed introducing ACCESS CONTROLS. With ACCESS CONTROLS, I was able to create a user profile and assign devices to that profile. From there, you can apply several web filters including blocking ads or other specific content (i.e. porn sites, tech sites, social networking, streaming, etc.). In addition, you can manually add specific websites so they are allowed even if a web filter rule you set blocks the category. I was able to successfully test this through web browsing and even through some of the iPhone apps that do pop-up ads; CUJO puts a bright orange webpage blocking access to the webpage. ACCESS CONTROL is very handy if you are looking to limit internet site access to family and children.
4. CUSTOMER SERVICE:
Customer service has been amazing. In the two weeks I've had the device, I've submitted multiple tickets to report bugs and provide feedback on some features. All were replied to within 30 minutes to 1 hour during weekdays. The customer service reps/tech support was able to help me immediately and even asked for my feedback/suggestions on certain features. Since I was active, their lead customer service rep asked to add me to their BETA program to test new features and provide more feedback. I accepted their BETA invitation gladly.
CUJO is not a deep-packet inspection firewall. It mainly inspects IP headers, websites/IP addresses, and device behavior/heuristics to block harmful websites and harmful traffic. It cannot decrypt tunneled traffic (i.e. HTTPS, SSL, IPSec, etc.), for good reason -- privacy concerns over Personal Identifiable Information (PII) and other sensitive information. Case-in-point: I ran a test to download the EICAR file (used by cyber security professionals to test/verify anti-virus/anti-malware software) to my computer and it got past the CUJO firewall. This is because CUJO recognizes the www.eicar.org is not on an "unsafe" blacklist of websites, and that HTTPS is an encrypted protocol. However once it was on my computer, my local firewall software (TrendMicro) immediately detected it and automatically deleted it right away.
6. FUTURE UPDATES:
CUJO website says that a Virtual Private Network (VPN) feature is coming soon. I'm looking forward to that and seeing CUJO continue to evolve and improve.
DO NOT ASSUME THAT CUJO SHOULD BE YOUR SINGLE POINT OF SECURITY FOR YOUR NETWORK. Keep your computer's firewall software installed and updated at all times, and keep your device's patches up-to-date. Defense-in-depth is a practice by cyber security professionals to have multiple layers of security and detection, so my suggestion is for users and admins to not have a single point of weakness or failure in the attack chain.
Setup was far from painless in my case. Cujo needs to be installed after a router doing DHCP to work properly in so called bridge mode. This means that it can't possible protect your router against hacking as they claim. It also poses a problem for all the homes who have a router and wifi in the same device. You need cujo between your router and your wifi to be protected, and if you can't use this setup, you're stuck with Cujo's dhcp mode which means you'll have to set up dhcp in Cujo, and you don't get any port forwarding (at least not in the current version).
Customer service has been brilliant, and I have had most questions answered quickly.
Would I have bought it again? I guess so. I have had my home wordpress instance hacked before, and Cujo would probably have stopped that, so I actually wish I have had it sooner. And I'm sure the hard working people behind this will rough out the issues in upcoming releases.
Hopefully a future enhancement(s) will be to see more details on the data flows for each device, like ports, protocols and total bandwidth. Since CUJO has the metadata already it shouldn't be too hard to aggregate the data and show it.
