FEATURES OF A CLOUD-BASED DNS THAT ARE IMPORTANT TO YOUR COMPANY:
Content Filtering and Ad Blocking. This can be conveniently implemented to block adult sites and other unwanted content, while requiring no software on the computers and devices.
Malware and Phishing Blocking. Filtering tool to also block sites containing viruses, scams and other dangerous content.
Protection Against Botnets. This blocks communication with known botnet servers so your computer isn't taken over.
URL Typo Correction. For instance, if you typed gogle.com it would correct to google.com
That’s why CWPS recommends Cisco Umbrella.CISCO UMBRELLA (OpenDNS)
Cisco Umbrella uses the internet’s infrastructure to block malicious destinations before a connection is ever established. By delivering security from the cloud, not only do you save money, but it also provides more effective security.
DNS & IP layer. Umbrella uses DNS to stop threats over all ports and protocols — even direct-to-IP connections. Stop malware before it reaches your endpoints or network.
Intelligent Proxy. Instead of proxying all web traffic, Umbrella routes requests to risky domains for deeper URL and file inspection. Effectively protect without delay or performance impact.
Command & Control Callback Blocking. Even if devices become infected in other ways, Umbrella prevents connections to attacker’s servers. Stop data exfiltration and execution of ransomware encryption.
You’ve always had a firewall, but now cyber criminals are using social engineering to target your employees. With CWPS’s first line of defense, even if your users click on a malicious site, it will prevent these webpages from opening, so you remain protected.
