CUJO Smart Firewall: Protect Your Home Network with Business-Level Security

Internet is such a wonderful invention that many of us can hardly live without it. From shopping and entertaining to learning and job hunting, there are so many things that we can accomplish online in the comfort of our homes. But staying connected via the Internet could make yourself more vulnerable to hackers, viruses, malwares, and other dangerous intrusions, especially when your network connection is left unprotected. The recent Equifax data breach urges us to be more proactive about Internet security. One of the actions you can take is to install an effective firewall like CUJO.

CUJO is a smart firewall for the connected home, designed to bring business-level security to the home network. Using machine learning, CUJO safeguards ALL smart devices connected to your wireless router against web threats. It detects and blocks malicious sites, viruses, and hacks, working like an antivirus software for your entire network.

I was very excited when Best Buy sent me a CUJO for review. My home is full of smart devices with WiFi capability, including smartphones, tablets, laptops, TV, thermostat and security cameras. I was seriously in need of help in the online safety department when CUJO arrived in this cute little box. Before starting to use the device, I was already impressed by its compact size and sleek design. It's lightweight too, easy to handle with one hand. My CUJO box comes with a 3-feet Ethernet cable, an AC Power adapter, a sticker, and best of all, FREE lifetime subscription with automatic software updates. Unlike any antivirus software I've purchased before, there is no need to pay any additional fees to keep my firewall protection up to date.

My kids think CUJO is super cool because it has a face with light-up eyes indicating its working status. When it's not properly connected, it will have an unhappy or warning face as shown in the picture above. The face will turn to a smiley one when things are all set. Both the upward and downward curves will be present when CUJO is working hard to get things right.

It was amazingly easy to set things up with CUJO. It took me less than 5 minutes to get the device up and running. Just plug in the adapter and cable, install the CUJO app on my phone and follow the prompts to complete installation and registration. As our router requires some special adjustment during installation, I received a call from a CUJO customer service representative guiding me through the process. This was the first time ever that tech support was being offered without me having to ask for it. Very impressive indeed!

About the Book:

Adventures of Little Yaga and Her Friends
Written by L.B. O’Milla

Little Yaga is a teenage forest dweller. She is unhappy because, unlike other foresters, she cannot howl or roar, and both of her legs are human-like. There have been rumors that Scraggard the Immortal, a powerful and ruthless Ruler of The Forest, is not exactly immortal. He is sustained on the energy of humans.

When he lures Ashley, a human teenager, into The Forest, Little Yaga, feeling sorry for this weird creature, helps her escape. Infuriated, Scraggard sends Little Yaga and her best friend Kikimra to the human town to bring Ashley back. The forest girls, stunned by technological “miracles” of humans, believe them to be as powerful as the Immortal himself. Unwillingly, Little Yaga and Kikimra become instrumental in Scraggard’s pursuit to recapture Ashley. Distressed by her disappearance, Ashley’s boyfriend and her brother manage to sneak into The Forest. Combining their efforts with Little Yaga and her forest friends, the teenagers embark on a perilous journey to rescue Ashley and save The Forest from Scraggard’s malevolent reign. As Little Yaga discovers the secrets of her forest home and her own origins, she comes into contact with creatures and settings straight out of Russian fables and mythology.
