Webroot DNS Protection

Webroot DNS Protection

Today’s businesses need secure, private, manageable and visible control over internet traffic.

The current domain name system (DNS) simply resolves internet requests through a global system of servers, then translates those requests into their unique Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. But this vital service was not designed with security in mind and many DNS exploits and vulnerabilities now exist.

By using a protective DNS service like Webroot® DNS Protection organizations control their networks and maintain the security, privacy and visibility they need to protect IT infrastructure and users, even those working remotely.

Its primary aim is to create a highly secure, private, resilient and manageable connection to the internet. Automated filtering uses Webroot BrightCloud® Internet Threat Intelligence to automatically block requests to undesirable, dangerous or malicious internet domains, even encrypted DNS over HTTPS (DoH) requests.

This filtering alone stops most internet threats before they can infect networks or endpoints. It helps organizations achieve the management control over their DNS connection recommended by the joint NSA and CISA Guidance on Strengthening Cyber Defense Through Protective DNS.
