By enabling DNS protection, you take a significant stride toward safeguarding your digital environment. DNS protection filters out hazardous sites that host phishing schemes, ransomware, and malware. In a world where cyber threats are becoming increasingly sophisticated, this kind of defensive measure is more important than ever.

The true strength of DNS protection lies in its preemptive nature. Rather than dealing with the aftermath of a security breach, DNS protection neutralizes the threat before it can take root. For example, if an employee inadvertently opens a phishing email and clicks on the embedded link, DNS protection ensures that the malicious link will be blocked, making it non-functional. This way, your organization's sensitive data remains secure and inaccessible to attackers.

At DNSFilter, we recognize the varying nature of cyber threats and have developed a comprehensive system to address them. Our solution leverages seven distinct threat categories to provide robust coverage against a multitude of cyber threats. One of these categories is "Phishing & Deception", defined as fraudulent websites that try to trick users into surrendering their personal or financial information.Screenshot 2023-08-03 at 3.37.01 PM.png

Blocking access to these deceptive websites is a critical measure in any cybersecurity strategy. It's not just about preventing potential financial losses; it's also about protecting your organization's reputation, maintaining customer trust, and ensuring regulatory compliance. With DNSFilter, you're not merely blocking a threat; you're fostering a safer digital space for your organization.
