DNS Security Enterprise Benchmark Report

The accuracy of your DNS provider directly impacts the number of threats you can block your employees from accessing. Roughly 70% of all cybersecurity attacks incorporate DNS—it only takes one threat falling through the cracks to compromise your entire infrastructure.

Because threat detection accuracy is so important, we put together this benchmark report comparing threats found via DNSFilter to four other competitors.

DNSFilter vs Cisco Umbrella

DNSFilter Vs. Cisco Umbrella

DNSFilter started after OpenDNS was purchased by Cisco and became Cisco Umbrella. From the beginning, we've sought to compete with Cisco Umbrella on speed, price, and feature set.

A lot of customers find us because they're fed up with Cisco and want a solution that just works, without regular maintenance. DNSFilter is easier to maintain, and we have support you can actually get in touch with. Not to mention, our policy changes take effect instantly and we offer Roaming Clients for Android devices—things that Cisco doesn't do.

DNSFilter Vs. Cloudflare

Who's faster? DNSFilter or Cloudflare? DNSFilter is the fastest DNS resolver in North America.

Cloudflare does not offer a complete DNS protection solution. As a newer tool in the Cloudflare product suite, it's missing key features like Roaming Clients, per-user reporting, real-time categorization, query logs, and whitelabeling. At DNSFilter, we think these features are mandatory. That's why we offer them.
