Powered by Artificial Intelligence

An industry exclusive—DNSFilter’s domain analysis is powered by AI. This allows us to identify malicious domains and undesirable content in real-time, providing an unrivaled level of protection by eliminating major threat vectors.

What does this mean?

Our competitors rely on static, human-categorized databases that are often weeks or months out of date. This leaves millions of domains uncategorized, allowing their users to continue to access domains that are malicious.

If a domain database is out-of-date, it’s useless. That’s why we use machine learning algorithms to analyze unknown domains instantly. Each domain we scan is then added to our database—but rescanning is a regular part of our AI’s job. Just because a site is safe now, doesn’t mean it always will be.

This means you can rest assured that you’re protected with the most up-to-date threat and domain analysis in the industry.

Web Content Filtering

The easiest content filtering you could ask for. Comprehensive and customizable, you can be set up and filtering in just minutes.

Simply select the categories you want to block—Adult Content, Illegal Content, Streaming Media, Chat & Instant Messaging, Social Networking, etc.—and we’ll do the rest. Our proprietary algorithms intelligently categorize sites so you don’t have to constantly maintain a list of domains.

You can even enforce Google SafeSearch, YouTube restricted modes, one-click CIPA compliance, and filtering avoidance domains so nothing slips through the cracks.

Beautiful Reports

From an at-a-glance-view to a deep dive of your network traffic, DNSFilter’s easy-to-use reporting allows you to clearly visualize usage patterns and top destinations across all of your networks.

Activity Reports—Get details and trends for total requests, queries per second, most active networks, and top requests.

Security Threats Report—Quantify the level of protection you’re delivering to your networks and identify the source and frequency of attacks against your networks.

Query Log—Full query log data for troubleshooting investigation, streaming in real time.
