We are an MSP who is using DNSFilter services to augment security for the organizations we support. The service is reliable and the mobile agents are pretty easy to deploy. Having a fixed IP address for each site/location is important so you don't have to deploy agents on every machine. We had some troubles off/on for a bit with agents randomly switching to roaming mode but I don't think we've had an issue since they implemented the local DNS and domain fields. The extra security above what our endpoint protection and firewalls provide is good and provides us with another check box for compliance.

Augments existing infrastructure (endpoint protection and firewall) to filter bad sites from Internet. Works fine for MSPs as you can compartmentalize each customer and to integrate billing.

DNSFilter is used as a part of the base security suite we require all clients to have, currently that means we have it deployed to around 700 endpoints. We strongly feel DNS filtering is a must-have service for all clients and wanted something that was set up and forget and DNSFilter fit the bill perfectly.
  • Ease of Use
  • Ease of deployment
  • Simple to Understand Reporting
  • Upgrades of Laptop Clients
  • Handling of Dynamic IPs and custom domains
  • Documentation
DNSFilter is well suited for the MSP market as its simple setup and deployment means there is not a lot of management cost included, this allows us to include it in our security stack with little additional cost. We can set up base policies that work for 99% of clients right from the start so no need to reinvent the wheel with every deployment.

We use DNSFilter across all of our clients as well as internally. We forward all DNS traffic to DNSFilter and it provides us with peace of mind knowing both our internal and clients web traffic is secure. DNSFilter also offers a remote agent that we install on laptops that keeps them safe when they are on networks outside of their internal business networks.
  • Web filtering
  • Remote agent
  • Console is easy to use and manage
  • Updates to policies are instant
If you have a need to secure web traffic and block unproductive and inappropriate sites, look no further then DNSFilter. It is very easy to deploy and manage. You can manage multiple sites, locations, customers from within a single pane of glass which saves major time. Policy changes are instant and you can customize the block screens.

We are a managed service provider. We have multiple clients across many different verticals. We deploy DNSFilter at a firewall level for internal networks and leverage their roaming client for all laptops. We are able to sleep a little better at night knowing DNSFilter has our back. DNSFilter handles DNS and Content Filtering very efficiently and allows us no not waste time.

I would personally recommend DNSFilter to anyone looking for an extra layer of protection in today's ever-changing threat landscape. DNSFilter is very affordable, easy to set up, and even easier to manage. It will save you time and money by protecting web traffic and keeping users away from inappropriate and malicious sites.
