DENVER, CO (February 22, 2023) – Pax8, the leading cloud commerce marketplace, today announced a global partnership with DNSFilter to offer DNS-layer threat protection solutions to managed service providers (MSPs). DNSFilter detects and blocks malicious site content faster than any other DNS resolver on the market, blocking over 9 billion threats in 2022 all while maintaining the fastest network in North America per PerfOps.com.
“Security is top of mind for Pax8 and every MSP and their clients, as attacks continue to wreak havoc on every industry at alarming rates,” said Nikki Meyer, CVP of Vendor Alliances at Pax8. “We’re thrilled to add the monitoring and filtering capabilities of DNSFilter to the security offerings provided by Pax8. This will empower our partners to provide critical security protection to their customers.”
Founded in 2015, DNSFilter’s tools are easy to deploy across clients and are top-rated amongst the over 2,000 MSPs organizations who utilize the company’s unique Threat Protection service. DNSFilter’s powerful reporting and management capabilities were built for MSPs, and deployment can be performed on individual devices through roaming clients, or on the network itself, giving service providers the flexibility across clients they need.
“DNS is one of the primary layers of the internet that you need to protect, since over 70% of threats traverse the DNS layer,” said CEO and founder of DNSFilter Ken Carnesi. “We provide unparalleled ease of deployment for MSPs. In less than five minutes MSPs can have entire customer networks and all activity visible for improved threat monitoring and blocking.” DNSFilter COO Colin Britton adds, “We’re bringing together the Pax8 marketplace for ease of procurement, along with the easy-to-deploy DNSFilter platform. Not only is Pax8 one of the top distribution channels in the MSP market, but they actually understand how MSPs want to do business. That’s why we’re thrilled to be a Pax8 partner.”
