Do you connect USB drives of other people to your computer? Are you worried that the hacked USB firmware can attack your computer? There is now a solution to protect you.

Armadillo is a hardware firewall that protects your computer from being isolated from malicious devices. It is easy to use and you just have to connect the Armadillo firewall between your computer and your USB device.

It is a high-speed USB 2.0 hardware that allows quick file transfer, making it great for flash drives and hard drives to use.

Armadillo is based on an USG firewall that customers all over the world use and has proven its open source technology in time.

The firewall technology, protection levels and both support USB storage devices, keyboards and mice are used by Armadillo and USG. Armadillo is ahead of USG as it is loaded with USB 2.0 high-speed hardware in terms of speed.

How the Device Protects you from Hackers

Before being triggered on the computer, the firewall blocks malicious USB commands and only secure USB commands are allowed to pass. The background can not enable hidden USB features such as secret keyboards or network interfaces, as only a single USB function can work at a time.

The firewall also protects you from malicious computer and stops infections before they hit your device. It has a read-only mode to protect your files from malicious computers.

The firewall includes HID bot detection to block bots using keyboards and mouse to enter malicious control systems like the USB Rubber Ducky hacking device.

Armadillo can be used with any USB drive, keyboard or mouse, it can not be used with a USB hub because the second function is connected to the hub. The rule here is therefore one Armadillo, one USB device.

If you share your USB drives with third parties-friends, business contacts, customers-then Armadillo is a must-see device.

How to connect and purchase


The Firewall is easy to use, only the USB device has to be connected to the Firewall and the computer with the firewall.

It also includes LEDs that flash due to errors; if the connected device finds a fault, Armadillo will immediately switch off and disconnect the device to ensure the safety of your computer.

The Armadillo Hardware Firewall can be ordered from the Online Store at a price of NZ$249.
