What is DNS Protection?

DNS Protection creates a highly secure, private, resilient and manageable connection to the internet. It automatically blocks requests to undesirable, dangerous or malicious internet domains, even encrypted DNS over HTTPS (DoH) requests.

No Message IconThe NSA and CISA both recommend DNS filtering as it stops most internet threats before infection.

Why is DNS Protection necessary?

The current domain name system (DNS) wasn’t designed with security in mind. It simply resolves internet requests and translates them into their unique Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Bad actors exploit this clear text service many different ways.
