Overall Satisfaction with DNSFilter

Our organization uses DNSFilter to keep employee's browsing safely with it's threat protection and content filtering. It allows us to keep our users from navigating to suspicious or inappropriate web content such as adult websites, streaming websites, and gambling-related sites. With DNSFilter, it's easy to add specific websites into a whitelist or blacklist quickly & painfully simple.

Pros

  • Content Filtering
  • Threat Protection
  • Detailed Reporting on Network Activity

Cons

  • DNSFilter doesn't have IP layer filtering like other products in it's space
  • Simple, clean UI & Dashboard
  • Content Filtering of all undesirable content, protecting all of our endpoints
  • Supports our hybrid environment of multiple OS (Windows, MacOS, ChromeOS, Android, iOS)
  • Low Latency
  • Fast & simple deployment means less time spent managing the tool
  • DNSFilter uses Machine Learning to analyze an array of undesirable websites & provides us with recommendations
  • Keeps our endpoints & users secure
For our use case, we find that we prefer DNSFilter over Cisco Umbrella. The pricing model on DNSFilter is much more attractive compared to Umbrella but we acknowledge that Umbrella does have more features. We find that DNSFilter is easier to manage, cheaper, and meets our requirements in terms of support. Cisco Umbrella is a close 2nd though.

Did DNSFilter live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy DNSFilter again?

For the price that DNSFilter is offered, we find that it is extremely well suited for organizations of all sizes. One of the best features of DNSFilter is that is extremely easy to deploy, and falls into our "set it and forget it" list of tools. When we are actively using DNSFilter, we find that the UI is simple, clean, and well thought out. DNSFilter is effective at keeping our users off malicious, suspicious and undesirable content online.
