Overall Satisfaction with DNSFilter

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

  • Ease of use
  • Less time spent managing filters
  • Less time dealing with malware infections
  • Reports help highlight problem employees
When compared to Kerio Control we found Central Management of filtering to be much easier, it also allowed us to apply filtering to remote devices like laptops and had better logging. We found DNSFilter to be much easier to deploy then Webroot DNS Protection because Webroot required the Anti Virus to be installed before deployment was even possible, and reporting features were very lacking.

Do you think DNSFilter delivers good value for the price?

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.
