With the launch, DNSFilter, a threat protection and content filtering specialist, unveiled its Scheduled Reporting and Universal Lists features for MSPs.
Correspondingly, the company named Mikey Pruitt as “MSP Evangelist “to lead program strategy and execution. He previously served as DNSFilter’s DevOps engineer and product manager.
Ken Carnesi, DNSFilter CEO and co-founder, explained the inspiration behind the new partner program:
“MSPs are the lifeblood of our business. Better serving the MSP community was why we started the company in the first place and launching a Global Partner Program builds on our deep commitment to fulfilling our goals. Partners are provided with new tools to secure customer environments and enhanced opportunities to accelerate business traction.”
Prior to DNSFilter, Carnesi founded a hybrid MSP and ISP called Anaptyx and was an OpenDNS customer following its acquisition by Cisco Umbrella. As a customer, Carnesi was frustrated with the solution’s lack of innovation, convoluted pricing and lack of support for ISPs and MSPs, DNSFilter stated. He then identified an opportunity to build a better technology and service, particularly for MSP and ISP partners, which led to the launch of DNSFilter.
