Content Filtering Defined

Content filtering is the act of blocking unwanted web content and allowing “appropriate” or “favorable” content to be visitable. At DNSFilter, we do content filtering at the DNS level backed by our AI, Webshrinker.

Content filtering is more than just blocking social media and streaming services on work devices. It’s also an important form of web security that keeps phishing, malware, ransomware, botnet, and other threats from infecting your corporate devices.

Our AI has been trained to categorize never-before-seen sites, meaning we have the most accurate and up-to-date content classification available. DNSFilter customers can choose from over 35 content categories, 7 threat categories, and safe search options that they can block or allow. This gives our users the ability to completely customize the content they’d like to block and allow.

Battling Child Abuse Online

We recognize that websites should never be viewed. And more than that, when images of child sexual abuse are found online, they need to be removed. This is why we've partnered with the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) and Project Arachnid.

These organizations, based in the UK and Canada respectively, are doing incredibly important work and we are proud to partner with them in their fight to end the cycle of child sexual abuse.

The IWF and Project Arachnid's domain feeds are automatically blocked on the DNSFilter network and are the only category on our network that cannot be turned off.

One-Click CIPA Compliance

For schools or libraries that need to gain CIPA compliance, it's as easy as one click with DNSFilter.

The Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) started in the early 2000s as a way to keep children safe online while in public places. Schools and libraries are only eligible for e-rate funding when they achieve CIPA compliance.

CIPA compliance includes restricting access to inappropriate and harmful internet content while creating a safe and secure place for students to use online communications.

Block Website Content at the DNS Level

When you filter website content at the DNS level, you’re able to block threats and traffic to inappropriate websites earlier than other methods like traditional firewalls. Blocking content at the DNS layer means fewer threats get through your defenses and inappropriate sites aren’t as easily circumvented. Stopping the DNS request means that a website you want to block is never seen by the end user, preventing any harm that can be done by that site.
