CYBER & IT SECURITY
Safe Weblink Checking
Alliance Solutions provides Webroot’s DNS Protection solution to help businesses ensure its network users can use the internet without fear of browsing to a malicious website.
Webroot’s DNS Protection solution redirects network users’ web requests through its cloud-based DNS security servers. This allows businesses to fine tune and enforce their web access policies, whilst also stopping the majority of web-based threats before they can hit the network or endpoints.
Why DNS Is Important
The global DNS (Domain Name System) was not designed to be secure, and as such is open to abuse by scammers and cybercriminals.
Without a solution to check that weblinks are safe, browsing can be hijacked by criminals, using techniques such as ‘cache poisoning’, botnets and ‘denial of service’ attacks, which divert users to a malicious site.
The Solution: DNS Protection
Webroot’s safe weblink checking or DNS Protection solution is a cloud-based service that protects DNS connections, networks and users against the risk of browsing to a malicious website which could result in a cyber attack.
Blocking threats at the domain level
The solution covers over 80 URL categories, which allows you to set your browsing policy at a detailed level. This then automatically blocks specific categories of website that may be deemed dangerous or unsuitable, e.g. malware, gambling, adult, software download or media streaming.
Reduced costs from reduced infection levels
DNS Protection stops up to 88% of web-borne malware at the domain layer, so it never reaches your network. It saves you time and money, while also minimizing unproductive web usage.
Detailed controlling and reporting
Managers can make sensible decisions about internet usage, setting policies by user category, device type and network. These policy decisions can be based on detailed reports which give insight into nascent threats and usage.
