Tailor your guest Wi-Fi to your visitors and patrons’ needs

Using SafeDNS

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.

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 domain queries 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.

Reliably family-friendly Wi-Fi

Parents with kids who connect to your guest Wi-Fi will not have to worry about unwanted or explicit sites with the SafeDNS web filtering service on.

Malware & phishing-free Wi-Fi

A SafeDNS-protected Wi-Fi prevents its users from accessing malicious and phishing sites which can severely damage users’ devices, steal personal and corporate data. To defend your Wi-Fi users against these cyber threats, filter out all content security-related categories in the SafeDNS service management panel.

No complaints about inappropriate use of guest Wi-Fi

With us, you can easily block any dangerous and unwanted content, therefore, keeping your visitors satisfied. Choose which content categories to block or allow from the 61 SafeDNS categories.

Fast & easy deployment

Start filtering the guest Wi-Fi in minutes. There’s no need for any additional hardware or software. Just redirect DNS queries of your Wi-Fi network users to SafeDNS filtering servers based on your own filtering rules.

Centralized filtering management

Manage your filtering settings and access filtering service analytics for any of your APs(Access Points), and locations from the centralized Service Dashboard. Use it to create filtering policies, manage and fine-tune the filtering settings as you see fit.

Wi-Fi usage Analytics

Probe detailed filtering analytics to monitor online activities on your wireless network. As a guest Wi-Fi owner, you may find the analytics useful to grasp more insights about your audiences. Such knowledge will help you target advertising campaigns more effectively.

Seamless implementation

The SafeDNS 100% cloud service supports any devices, IPs and third-party DNS services, and can be configured on APs, Wi-Fi routers and other Wi-Fi network equipment.

Scalability

No limit on the number of users and extensibility of your filtering. When launching new Wi-Fi hotspots, you will be able to add them to the filtering by purchasing more SafeDNS licenses.

Wi-Fi policy enforcement

Use SafeDNS to manage access to your Wi-Fi network and enforce your Wi-Fi use policy. For a multi-layer web access management, create as many filtering policies within your organization as you need.

Multi-policy filtering

You can filter the internet differently for your guest Wi-Fi users. For a multi-layer web access management, create as many filtering policies within your wireless network as you go. As for the policies, i.e., filtering policies and categories, you may block the content you do not desire your Wi-Fi users to see.

Protection against child abuse content

Because we signed a partnership agreement with the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) and the Project ARACHNID, both advocates of the fight against child sexual abuse, our database gets permanently updated about the resources and domains considered inappropriate for children. Hence, you can ensure your Wi-Fi users do not visit websites with child sexual abuse images or videos. You may block the two dedicated filtering categories SafeDNS provides for content-related child sexual abuse.

Anti-extremism protection

Filter out terrorism-promoting content which poses 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'.

Regulatory compliance

Get rid of illegal content to make your Wi-Fi compliant with the regulations which require the removal of explicit content, e.g., pornography or sexual abuse. For instance, with a couple of clicks, guest Wi-Fi owners in Germany can block illegal sites from a list for media harmful to young people (BpjM) managed by the Federal Department.

Filtering customization

Intelligent whitelisting or blacklisting, and fully customizable ‘service block pages’ will be available to you. From our white and black lists, you can assemble your own lists depending on the company policies or interests. You may also add sites to be excluded from any filtering rules. Personalize the ‘service block pages’ to let your guest Wi-Fi users know why this or that site is blocked. To tailor the page to the needs of any audience, you may create an ‘individual block page’ for each filtering policy.
