On January 25, 2022 DNSFilter experienced an outage in the Northeastern US. Here is a response from our CEO on this now-resolved incident.
Sony Music filed an injunction against Quad9 (a non-profit DNS resolver) in Germany to block a specific site that houses links to peer-to-peer (piracy) sites. Quad9 is objecting to this injunction on the grounds that a DNS resolver is a far-removed third party when it comes to copyright infringement and these services are truly meant for cybersecurity—Ken Carnesi (CEO of DNSFilter, a DNS security service) sides with Quad9.
DNSFilter is transitioning our legacy, usage-based customers to per-user pricing beginning June 1, 2021.
Yesterday, an Auth0 outage impacted DNSFilter customers' ability to login to the platform. Here's an overview of the incident.
