Create a safe web for students and control your student network

Using SafeDNS

SafeDNS supplies schools with a reliable multi-policy web filtering.

Protect your network users against anything you dislike about the internet.

High precision filtering

To deliver users an exceptionally accurate web filtering, SafeDNS uses its own web categorization database with 109M sites, distributed in 6 dozen content categories.

DNS-layer filtering

DNS-based filtering is the most comprehensive web filtering technique. It blocks unwanted sites altogether before users access them. It also restricts accesses to both HTTP and HTTPS sites. Other than that, DNS filtering is indispensable for blocking malicious sites as over 90% of malware uses DNS to carry out malicious campaigns.

Category-based filtering

SafeDNS users decide which categories of content to block or allow on their network. We provide 61 SafeDNS categories to choose from.

Regulatory compliance

SafeDNS is a perfect solution for educational institutions like K-12 schools that wish to comply with the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) in the USA, or BpjM (Federal Review Board for Media Harmful to Minors) in Germany. Filter out pornography, sexual abuse and other illegal content in just a few clicks.

Anti-extremism protection

Filter out terrorism-promoting content which poses a threat to young and grown-up individuals. To protect users against terror-related content, SafeDNS adds a list of sites, compiled by Counter Terrorism Internet Referral Unit run by the Metropolitan Police of the UK, to a filtering category named 'Hate & Discrimination'.

Enhanced filtering for minors

SafeDNS has also created 2 categories dedicated to blocking any content related to child sexual abuse. To provide effective results, the categories are synced with the IWF Child Sexual Abuse Content List and Project Arachnid database for unwanted content, both widely known for their efforts towards child protection.

Award-winning service

Since 2015, SafeDNS content filtering service has been certified by the AV-Comparatives, a high-profile test lab. The ‘Approved Parental Control Product’ award has been given 4 times in a row.
