Company Name: SafeDNS
Headquarter: United States
Overall: We can easily have end users maintain the content filtering if needed due to the simpler interface.
Pros: Very easy to install and integrate. The service allowed for more flexible options – such as a longer whitelist of websites – as well as less complicated than Cisco Umbrella.
Cons: The ability to disable the content filtering for maintenance or troubleshooting had been an issue, but an update corrected it.
Pros: Safedns does a great job of making DNS based administration quick and easy. Safedns also does a great job of allowing administrators to define a list of allowed sites and deny everything else. Some of the big players in this space surprisingly don’t have this functionality.
Cons: I didn’t care for the SafeDNS agent software. We tried it on a few systems and decided to apply at the network level for filtered vlans.
We have several scanners that need to work with our network, and they must have access to the Internet. Even the scanners have limited access to the wan, our personnel found a way to navigate to not work-related webpages. SafeDNS it’s a great tool to have restrictive control on this matter. At the same time, it is a great way to get control of the webpages the administrative personnel has access to, all this, without using an expensive proxy. And the most important thing for us. SafeDNS allow us to accomplish specific requirements from the CTPAT program (U.S. Customs and Border Protection rules).
SafeDNS has an easy way to administrate all the rules on our network. I like the way that has the filters for a safe google search. The pre-rules are extensive but flexible at the same time if you want a restrictive network without sacrifice speed and functionality. All these advantages for a great value price.
I would like to have more number of domain registers on the white/black option lists. I think 40 entries it’s not enough.
I’ve been using SafeDNS on the school network I manage for a number of years. Here’s the pros: 1. The cost, especially for educational institutions, is very affordable. 2. Implementation is simple if you’re well versed in router configuration. 3. The interface is simple. Preset categories seem to be fairly effective. 4. Forced Safe Search for search engines and Forced Restricted Mode for YouTube is a great feature for implementing in a school. 5. Changes in configuration can be made from any web browser at any time, so management is remote.
1. At the present time, the SafeDNS agent, which automatically sends your IP information to SafeDNS, is available for Windows only. macOS users are out of luck. For my application, this isn’t a huge deal because I have the network set up on a static IP, but for those with a dynamic IP address, the only way to keep the filtering working 100% is to use the agent app.
