DNS Protection for Secure Web Browsing

Why DNS protection is important

The global DNS (Domain Name System) is used to translate a website name to a web address. The Internet relies on DNS for its operation, however, DNS was not designed to be secure, and as such is open to abuse by scammers and cybercriminals.

Without a solution to check that web links 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 web link 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 that could result in a cyber-attack.

Webroot’s DNS (Domain Name System) protection solution scans web requests for potentially malicious Internet access requests. This allows organisations to fine tune and enforce their web access policies, whilst also stopping the majority of web-based threats before they can reach the network or endpoints.

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.

Reducing infections reduces costs

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.
