Using SafeDNS

DNS-layer filtering

DNS filtering is the most comprehensive web filtering technique. It blocks unwanted sites altogether before users access them. DNS filtering blocks both HTTP and HTTPS sites. 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 categories to choose from.

High precision filtering

To deliver users an exceptionally accurate web filtering, the company uses its own web categorization database with 109M sites, distributed in 5 dozen content categories. With the database information we analyze each DNS query from SafeDNS-protected devices to define what content categories the requested site belongs to. The queries for sites from user allowed categories are successfully resolved into IP addresses of the requested sites. Otherwise, SafeDNS shows users a service block page – instead of the requested site from user blocked categories.

Business & nonprofits

Any kind of for-profit and nonprofit organizations.

Public WiFi hotspots

Guest and public wireless networks at public venues.

Education & libraries

Libraries and educational institutions of any level – from kindergartens to schools to colleges and universities.

Cyber security booster

With us, you can easily block malicious and phishing sites – actually, any content your clients consider harmful and dangerous. For fighting these threats, block all security-related categories in the service management panel.

WiFi policy enforcement

Use SafeDNS to manage access to your clients’ wireless networks and enforce their WiFi use policy for individuals, entire departments or network-wide. For a multi-layer web access management, create as many filtering policies within a single organization, as each client needs.

Fast deployment

Start filtering the internet for your clients in minutes. There’s no need for any additional hardware or software. Just redirect DNS queries of your clients’ network users to SafeDNS filtering servers to be resolved according to the necessary filtering rules.

Visibility

Provide filtering stats and reports to your clients to let them keep an eye on the online activity on their WiFi. Employers and educators would appreciate info if their staff and students stick to the organization's rules on using the internet. Owners of public WiFi may find the filtering stats useful to better learn their audiences and target advertising campaigns more precisely.

Increased recurring revenue

Increase ARPU and customer lifetime value by charging an additional fee for any filtering-based services.

Scalability

No limit on the number of customers and scaling the filtering. You will be able to add new users to the filtering by purchasing more SafeDNS licenses.
