    It's Open Source and the internals are much better documented, no security tool is perfect but at least here if you're a professional you can see how to works to know what it is and is not capable of. However with GlassWire they just give generic help desk responses whenever you ask questions, either because they don't know or are just trying to cover it up for marketing.
