It's a freeware post. GlassWire is a free network monitor & security tool with a built in firewall. Use GlassWire's simple to use interface to view all your past and present network activity on a graph. Click the graph to see what applications initiated the incoming or outgoing bandwidth and instantly see what hosts the applications were communicating with. Hosts are automatically resolved and also include their country of origin. Click the Apps and Traffic options to break down network activity by applications and traffic types.
GlassWire adds extra Internet security to your computer or server by visualizing all past and present network data in an easy to understand graph. Instantly see every application or process communicating over the Internet, then dive in deeper to see who or what your computer is communicating with. Whenever anything new on your computer accesses the network GlassWire lets you know with a discreet alert that won't interrupt your workflow or server.
GlassWire also has a toolbox of network security checks like system file change detection, device list change detection, app info change detection, ARP spoofing monitoring, and we're just getting started. Our software also alerts you if your computer or server is communicating with a known IP or domain threat. We're working hard on adding many more intrusion detection rules to GlassWire in the future.
Unfortunately comprehensive malware detection and perfect network intrusion detection does not exist. Our software isn't perfect but we hope that GlassWire's mix of easy to use network visualization, firewall management, and network monitoring rules will do good in the never ending war against spyware and malware. GlassWire's Internet Security is a second line of defense and should always be used with a separate primary antivirus product.
Version 1.1.21 beta
Hash # 3DAB5A227A5EA55ACC7C052FA8BEA6C1
Inactive firewall applications are now grouped separately under the "Firewall" tab if they show no attempted network activity for 7 days.
Now get alerted about new unknown devices that join the network, instead of getting alerts about every device that joins or leaves the network. Go to GlassWire's settings then choose "Security" then click "Network device monitor".
DNS is now resolved for local hosts.
Away intervals now appear in the "mini" graph.
Many fixes and improvements including a bug that caused GlassWire's graph not to start working for some users.
