GateWall DNS Filter is a cloud solution based on DNS requests filtering that allows the blocking of dangerous and non-target resources, and analysis of Internet use.
How does it work?
Any Internet-connected device uses a DNS server. As soon as a user types the Web address in the browser address bar, for example, www.google.com, a request is forwarded to a DNS server that returns the Web IP-address, and then the page is loaded. With our service, you can fully control a DNS server, and will be able to block any Web categories, as well as view all users’ request statistics.
DNS requests filtering is not as secure as traffic filtering, but is much easier to provide for a big number of users located in different networks and subnetworks.
Why is GateWall DNS Filter unique?
The use of DNS servers is usually free, and it is quite easy to find free services that will block requests to dangerous or pornographic resources. However, the main problem with such services is the size and quality of their Web databases. As a rule, they contain only a required minimum of the most popular Webs and offer a very low security level. Our technologies filter Webs by all kinds of categories, for example, “Job Search” or “Religious Content;” the users have access to reports and analytical data, and may set the filter according to their needs. GateWall DNS Filter operates in a cloud environment based on the Amazon platform, which makes the system highly efficient and 99.99% reliable.
What does a “cloud” service mean?
Nowadays cloud services are a global tendency, and have a lot of advantages. Working in a “cloud” means that you do not waste time and resources on supporting your own servers, and, at the same time, enjoy a much greater level of reliability and data security.
