Reviewing the 2.0 update: In my view, Murus is the way to go. It makes taking security seriously actually fun. The Pro bundle also includes Vallum, which is an Application Firewall, while Murus is a Packet Filter. Murus Pro can be overwhelming by its options at the start, nevertheless the UI is clean and most things are explained quite well. It also comes with builtin templates you can use to adjust your firewall without digging in too much. However, you can customize everything, blocking a complete port or filtering by IP, country network and or even pipe a service to use only a specific bandwidth. It also comes with a log where you can investigate who knocked on your door. For 35$ this is by far the best you can get for your money and compared to others it's very affordable.

After many years of using Little Snitch, and other stuff, on and off, I gave Murus a try out, but liked it enough to buy the Pro version with the Vallum companion app. I gave up on Little Snitch as it's had too many stability issues over the years (causing kernel panics nonetheless), and it's dialogues just get so tedious to deal with it becomes a security liability as you tend to just dismiss stuff so you can continue working. Setting up Murus is easy, with different levels according to needs and ability. The companion app Vallum is also very easy to set up, and much more friendly to deal with blocking/allow dialogues. So far I'm very impressed with the whole package, and it's well worth the fee (just for once something that's been priced reasonably for the average user to justify buying). Worth considering if your looking for added security.

Lets face it, we are living in a world full of criminal behavior, much of the activity takes place on the internet. Therefore, we all **should** be concerned with security and making it a priority before you are the victim.

For me security starts with securing my computers, using difficult passwords, and not saving my credit card information on any web site if possible. I've been using the default Mac firewall PF for a long time. However, I have found it difficult to make changes to because you need to use the terminal and you can easily mess up your configuration making it impossible to get onto your WAN or LAN.

I just stumbled onto Murus and it's brother Vallum and suddenly making those necessary changes became simple.. After using Murus for an hour I purchased Murus Pro which comes with Vallum and I will never leave my computer alone without it. With Vallum I no longer needed Little Snitch, which is another great application but it would be redundant running little Snitch along with Vallum. Murus and Vallum work together beautifully because they are develop by the same developers.

****** Need Security? Purchase Murus Pro, it makes configuring your firewall a breeze ******

I am not affiliated with Murus or Vallum developers, just a thrilled user of Murus and Vallum.

It would be enormously helpful if MU carried screen shots of the various Murus products so we could see what they actually do (the screenshot on the developer's site is too small to be legible).

I love this program. After struggling (and failing) to get Fail2Ban to work, I found Murus and bought the Pro version immediately after trying out the trial version I use Murus to ban IPs from China, Russia, and other countries where bots run amuck trying to brute force your machine. Combine it with Murus Logs Visualizer and you'll have a great tool for seeing at a glance who is banging on your ports, and then permanently banning them with a couple of clicks. Note that academic users can purchase this product for a discount directly from the Murus website. For my wishlist: I would love it if Murus would add a feature that lets you ban an entire subnet with a click, instead of just a single IP address. You see too many hackers changing IP addresses during an attack in an attempt to circumvent adaptive filtering. The only way to shut them down is by adding a custom firewall rule to block their subnet. Streamlining that process would be a great timesaver.
