DNS filtering for MSPs is the easiest way for MSPs to protect against the web-based component of phishing attacks and to prevent the downloading of malware and ransomware from malicious websites.
DNS filtering is a form of web filtering that allows businesses to carefully control the online content that can be accessed by their end users. Certain types of online content or services can be blocked, such as pornography or peer-to-peer file sharing, to reduce legal risk and controls can be applied to restrict access to websites known to be a drain on productivity, such as social media networks, dating, and gambling websites. DNS filtering can also be used to control bandwidth and ensure all users can enjoy good internet speeds. These are all important benefits for businesses, but the biggest benefit of DNS filtering is improved threat protection.
DNS filtering allows MSPs and their clients to prevent end users from visiting phishing websites and other malicious webpages, such as those containing exploit kits. Drive-by malware downloads can be blocked, and DNS filtering can be used to control shadow IT by blocking downloads of software and executable files. By blocking malware, ransomware and phishing, data breaches and reputational damage can both be avoided.
