Protect ALL of Your Network Devices with the #CUJO Smart Firewall (sold at Best Buy)

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.

Great things do come in small packages!
The Cujo Smart Firewall protects every device on your network!
This is what the box looks like on it's own. This is what you are going to look for in the store. It's a small device, with a whole lotta' punch to it. Have you heard the saying, "Good things come in small packages?" Well the Cujo, sold at Best Buy proves that saying to be true!!


Cujo offers business-level Internet security for all devices that go through your router. This includes not only your computers or mobile devices, but also smart cameras, doorbells, thermostats, the TV, baby monitors, etc. You can control each of those devices with an app that you install on your phone (iOS or Android) or other compatible device. Think of it like an antivirus for your entire network. Things that you have that were never guarded before, are instantly very strongly protected once you set up your Cujo. And your computers, that you typically do protect, are now ensured to have business-level Internet security that continuously detects and blocks malicious sites and hacks.


Set up is easy. You simply download the Cujo app and it will walk you through the process, step by step. Two Gigabit Ethernet port openings on the back provide the fast network connection (that will not slow down your network). The easy integration is designed to work well with your existing network. 


My youngest son just turned 10. He has homework almost daily (not on Fridays) that has to be done on the computer, so I thought it was time, and I let him pick out a computer, his very first one. With the Cujo hooked up to the router, I am able to do quite a few things to help ensure he is safe. The first is parental controls, and you can install these on all devices. There is also an Internet filter, the ability to set up time limits, a way to pause the Internet (what?? that's awesome), and remote administration. You can also set up profiles and settings. 


My son is too young to be on social media, but there are also tools for social media monitoring, if that is something you would need. I remember my now 18-year-old daughter getting into word arguments with girls online sometimes when she was in high school, on her Facebook messaging. Cujo would have made that a lot easier to monitor, block or get rid of, if we would have had it at the time. Lesson learned for the next kiddo. ;)


Alerts and reporting are available with the parental controls as well. You really cannot be too safe, especially if you're allowing your kids access to the Internet. Monitor what they're doing physically (be in the room if you can) but have your full-time protection in places as well, with Cujo. Of course, I'm looking at this little beauty from a parent's perspective, but this device is amazing for any and everyone.


Something to note: If you get this at Best Buy you will also get a free subscription to run it. That's amazing (and awesome) So look for the little gray and orange box, and remember good things really do come in small packages!  Learn more by visiting Best Buy.

  2. The Cujo sounds amazing. You had me at parental controls, time limits and being able to stop the internet. I am so afraid of what my grandchildren will find while here surfing the world wide web.
