Create an application firewall ruleset managing apps icons. Each app has its own set of rules and parameters. Rules are defined easily and quickly using only buttons and graphic objects, dragging files and folders from the Finder to Vallum window. Easily manage complex ruleset with jails, temporary rules, inclusive or exclusive approaches.
Keep track of all apps connections with Vallum logs window. Logs can be sorted and searched. Logs inspection lets you get all the needed information about a connection and interact with Murus to issue a network-level rule for the OS X built-in PF packet filter.
Be notified in real time of unexpected or unwanted connections. These connections are held in a queue until a decision by you is made. Each app can be set to require this kind of authorization or not according to your needs. Notification alerts gives you a bunch of information about current connection’s and app’s parameters and let you choose between different blocking or passing policies.
Create network-level rules for the OS X built-in PF packet filter directly from Vallum notification alerts or from apps. This is possibile thanks to the interaction between Vallum and Murus. Custom PF rules created in Vallum are instantly activated in runtime and available for management inside Murus. You can do more: apps connections can be blacklisted at network level in one mouse click. Everything is easily done using only graphic elements, no need to learn any syntax or to manually type rules or addresses.
