SafeDNS, An Alternative To Cisco Umbrella / OpenDNS


How SafeDNS compares to Cisco Umbrella (formerly known as OpenDNS)

Network stats and Uptime

SafeDNS offers its network stats in real-time, and conversely, to most competitors, SafeDNS’s DNS servers average uptime is at 99.999% due to its 13 data centers around the world.

Made-to-order Filtering Module

Adding value to products and services is what drives all businesses. Cisco Umbrella does that obviously with the solutions they offer; however, SafeDNS takes it a notch further by offering the possibility to OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) to integrate its Filtering Module in their products to generate more revenue, how cool!
