Powered by Artificial Intelligence
An industry exclusive - DNSFilter’s domain analysis is powered by A.I. 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Our competitors rely on static, human categorized databases that are often weeks or months out of date. Millions of domains are registered or re-directed each day, meaning they allow you to access many domains that are malicious as they are not present or out of date within their database.
Rather than bragging about a large, out of date database, we use our machine learning algorithms to analyze unknown domains on the fly and constantly keep our data up to date. This means you can rest assured that you’re protected with the most up to date threat and domain analysis in the industry.Start Free 14-Day Trial

Off Network Protection
If your users require roaming, off network protection that follows them all over the globe, DNSFilter offers an extremely lightweight client that you can install on your user’s devices. Our easy to use client is able to be installed either manually or via MDM and does not require a VPN connection. Once installed, it allows for security and filtering policies to be enforced no matter what network you’re connect to.
Whether at an office, hotel or on the road, the DNSFilter client allows granular policy enforcement and reporting down to the device level.
* Currently Windows only - more OS support coming on our Roadmap.
Although DNSFilter is fully cloud based, for advanced users we offer a virtual appliance that you may optionally deploy within your network. Delivered as a virtual machine image or docker container, the software is lightweight enough to be installed on nearly any machine - it can even run on a Raspberry PI!
Once installed, the appliance encrypts all DNS requests and send them to DNSFilter’s global anycast network of resolvers. Aside from encrypting network DNS traffic, this also allows you to gain valuable advanced features, including statistics and access policies per machine.Start Free 14-Day Trial
