    Predict and prevent attacks before they happen

    Web Filtering provides a cloud-delivered network security service, Umbrella, that delivers automated protection against advanced attacks for any device, anywhere.


THREAT PROTECTION LIKE NO OTHER



OpenDNS not only blocks malware, botnets and phishing over any port, protocol or app, but also detects and contains advanced attacks before they can cause damage.

* View new network security activity in real time with globally aggregated reports.
View Example →

* Pinpoint devices infected or users targeted by advanced attacks to reduce the time to remediation.
View Example →

* Comply with internal acceptable use policies or regulatory requirements with up to 60 content categories.

PREDICTIVE INTELLIGENCE



OpenDNS Security Graph uses big-data analytics and machine learning to automate protection against both known and emergent threats.

* Layer predictive security to complement reactive signature-based or real-time behavior-based security.


* Expand situational awareness beyond the network activity from your devices and sites with our global threat visibility.



WORLDWIDE COVERAGE IN MINUTES



OpenDNS protects devices anywhere and stays up-to-date without admin intervention because there is no hardware to install or software to maintain.

* Instantly secures devices–even those you don’t own–across all decentralized networks via clientless DHCP.


* Easily secure devices inside or outside the network perimeter via auto-updated lightweight agents.


* Extend FireEye, Check Point and other partners’ advanced threat defenses beyond the perimeter in a few minutes.



NO ADDED LATENCY



With OpenDNS there is no need to reroute every connection through proxy or VPN gateways to secure mobile users or remote offices.

* No extra “hops” because external DNS traffic is simply resolved in the cloud by OpenDNS rather than the ISP.


* Only a few connections are transparently routed through our proxy when we must inspect below the DNS layer.

PROVEN RELIABLITY



* In 2006, our mission was to build the most reliable DNS service on the planet, and unlike others, we have always provided operational visibility.

* Today, our security uses the same foundation trusted by over 50 million daily- active users across 160 countries, including ISPs.


* Only a few connections are transparently routed through our proxy when we must inspect below the DNS layer.

Umbrella lets you manage the Internet experience on and off your network with acceptable use or compliance policies, putting you in control.



Manage flexible, location-aware policies with Umbrella’s 60 content categories and an unlimited number of custom block or allow lists. Laptops can be assigned policies with different Internet access restrictions and logging settings based on whether they’re on or off your network. Umbrella informs end-users of the policy with branded, customizable block pages, and offers a feature that enables approved, delegated users to bypass these pages.

BENEFITS

Umbrella’s rich database of 60 categories, covering millions of domains (and billions of Web pages), allows you to control which sites can be accessed on your network. The easy-to-use, cloud-managed administration console allows you to quickly set up and manage different acceptable use policies per network, group, user, device or IP address, giving you greater control of your organization’s Internet usage.
Umbrella enables you to customize our category-based filtering to meet each network’s specific needs. Quickly create exceptions to allow or block specific domains, regardless if the category it belongs to is allowed or blocked.

Whitelists allow you to ensure that a particular site is always accessible, even if the category it belongs to is being blocked. Blacklists operate in the opposite fashion by ensuring that a site on the blacklist is never accessible. Umbrella customers can have unlimited entries in their whitelist and blacklist to accommodate custom needs.
Block Page Bypass is an innovative feature that allows the granting of special permissions to bypass filtering settings without the use of any software or appliance. This feature enables you to assign individual users, such as your marketing managers, the ability to access specific filtering categories, such as social networking, or individual domains that are normally blocked on your network. Bypass privileges can be granted persistently on a per-user basis or through use of a bypass code, which grants access for one hour to 10 years.
Umbrella’s Whitelist-Only feature is best used for networks where Internet access should be restricted to specific domains. This allows for a “locked-down” and controlled Internet environment.
