I have a lot of devices on my home network, and I like the fact that Firewalla provides an alert when it detects abnormal uploads from those devices. However, it would be more useful if additional data could be provided to help me assess the alert, such as including more details in the "Destination Info" section.
For example, the information currently provided typically includes destination address, country, and port, but there's no indication on whether the destination site is risky or not. So to make an informed decision on whether to allow or block transfers to the site, I need to copy and paste data into another application or browser window for research elsewhere.
Perhaps providing some additional data (such as a risk factor) or a link to a respected site that maintains a list of suspicious domains would be useful in determining whether or not one should be concerned about the information being sent to the destination site. I'd feel more comfortable "allowing" data transfers to continue if I knew the site they were going to was low risk, but if risk was higher than that I would be a lot more careful before hitting the "allow" button.
