WebTitan® uses Amazon AWS for their cloud infrastructure. They have chosen to regionalize into separate AWS zones. This can cause slower DNS response times when users are roaming to other locations. They have to send their traffic across the world back to the region that hosts their filter. DNSFilter is different. We use BGP Anycast to form a global network of DNS servers. 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
WebTitan relies on a 3rd party for domain categorization data and offers the ability to allow/deny uncategorized domains. This is not an optimal solution, because the majority of internet domains are uncategorized by any filtering provider. DNSFilter utilizes our own Artificial Intelligence engine classify domains in real-time. When a user requests a previously unvisited site, the domain is first passed through our scanner and categorized. “Unknown” domains quickly become “known”, and are allowed/blocked according to your policies.
You can easily manage DNSFilter via PC, tablet, or smartphone. Unlike many other vendors, we also allow you to whitelabel the product for resale as part of your brand. You can easily manage sub-organizations in a multi-tenant environment. Many customers who switch to DNSFilter comment that the User Interface is simple for them to use compared to who they switched from.
Compared to WebTitan, DNSFilter offers unique features such as logging of policy changes, and more expansive endpoint support. These additional features are especially important for growing businesses who have multiple admins and off-site users.
