DNSFilter vs Webroot

Comprehensive cloud filtering.

Filtering Powerhouse

While Webroot® is a great Antivirus vendor, DNSFilter® is a superior web filtering solution. We are one of the only companies in the industry that does not rely on a third party for content categorization data. Our in-house Artificial Intelligence scanner, Webshrinker, classifies domains in real-time. We operate the largest amount of datacenter locations in the industry. This means you get a lightning fast connection to our servers, no matter where you are.

Our network has the fastest response time of any DNS provider in North America (including Google, Cloudflare, and Umbrella). Don’t just take our word for it. We publish our network stats in real-time at DNSperf.com

Comprehensive Control

While Webroot includes basic functionality to have block pages and filtering policies, DNSFilter takes it further. Policy customization can be tailored uniquely to each device, to groups, or entire networks. You are also allowed unlimited block pages, along with the ability to redirect your users to a custom block page. Our filtering schedules allow you to designate certain days/times that you wish to have a different policy in effect.

Whitelabeled for Resale
