"DNSFilter Saved My Budget"

What do you like best?

I love that DNSFilter is affordable! I was in the market for a new firewall appliance, but my budget was tight and spending a few thousand wasn't in the cards. Not a lot was available at my price point with content filtering. Other filters were just exorbitant! Along came DNSFilter and helped me outfit the small business that I work for at a wicked affordable price.

What do you dislike?

I'd like a little more breadth with regard to categories, but at the price and speed of requests, I am not complaining.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are looking for a great way to protect your network and at a fraction of the cost of other filters, DNSFilter should be a serious consideration. It's perfect for SMBs, SOHOs and even larger enterprise corporations. Definitely look into the tools and test drive so that you can see how the tools work and then implement. In a word where you have to be so cautious with business data, you cannot afford to overlook cybersecurity, especially when the cost is less than a lunch a month. This is a must-do! It'll help you sleep better at night!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Content filtering specifically for protection. We have an endpoint anti-virus, we have IPS and a proper firewall appliance and filtering was the only piece we were missing to keep the baddies off of our network. I've noticed it catches a lot of the hijacked links, malvertising and drive-by nastiness that our AV sometimes misses.

"Better than Comodo"

What do you like best?

DNSFilter is so easy to use with blocking sites, categories, and designing block pages.

What do you dislike?

at the moment it has been working pretty well for our company and don't have anything i dislike about DNSFilter.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using DNSFilter to block websites and help secure our network and devices. I have realized that when browsing in web seems to be much more efficient and that users can request a web page to be unblocked right from the block page.

What Secure Web Gateways solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!
