SafeDNS is a better alternative to Cisco Umbrella

5 vor 6 Monaten

Kommentare: We can easily have end users maintain the content filtering if needed due to the simpler interface.

Vorteile:

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.

Nachteile:

The ability to disable the content filtering for maintenance or troubleshooting had been an issue, but an update corrected it.

There are lots of DNS based security products out there

5 letztes Jahr

Vorteile:

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.

Nachteile:

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.

Quality DNS software at a Reasonable Price

5 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: Very satisfying - set and forget - until a user says why is this site blocked?

Vorteile:

Great support during set up and use by our company. Very helpful when fixing those settings which I didn't read up on in the guide - had a "man" look.

Nachteile:

Not a "known" elite brand but I feel this to be a good thing. Not expert in all things IT but expert in this field.

Secure, Safe DNS for everyone

5 vor 12 Monaten

Vorteile:

Easy console to use, the service does work.

Nachteile:

At times, searches are slow or look ups are slow across the network SafeDNS is securing, some frames don't return properly, if at all, on a web page. End user does not know what is wrong or if something is being blocked; and yes, there is a blocked page warning configured. Doesen't show up.

Exactly what you need for the most inexpensive price.

5 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: 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).

Vorteile:

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.

Nachteile:

I would like to have more number of domain registers on the white/black option lists. I think 40 entries it's not enough.

Affordable, Cloud-Based Web Filtering

5 vor 11 Monaten

Vorteile:

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.

Nachteile:

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.

SafeDNS- Low Maintenance Web Filter

5 vor 12 Monaten

Kommentare: We've been using SafeDns for several years. We are a school and we do not have personnel that can dedicate to Web Filtering management, hardware & software installation and maintenance. We also cannot afford to spend much. But, of course, we need the webfilter protection with hundreds of students. With SafeDns, you set it and forget it. Check once and a while to make sure it is securing your network. Very easy to use. Easy Web Based product with easy to use management. No heavy lifting from the user perspective, but delivers a solid protection.

Vorteile:

Very easy to setup. No additional servers, software. Short learning curve. Effective delivery of Web Filter Security. Very easy to Maintain.

Nachteile:

A few years ago, products like this were free. Now the annual fee goes up every year.

Great features and good pricing!

5 vor 11 Monaten

Kommentare: Excellent - moved to SafeDNS when our previous internet filtering solution was dropped by the vendor.

Vorteile:

Great central management of multiple accounts, with plenty of customisations for the block page etc. We use SafeDNS on customers’ firewalls, including campsites, hostels and garden centre Café’s!

Nachteile:

It would nice to be alerted if the service has received no dns hits for xx hours - this can happen if a dns record is changed, but I forget to update SafeDNS

Content filtering simplified

5 vor 4 Monaten

Kommentare: Cedars of Lebanon Academy is a K - 12 non-profit Christian school. SafeDNS has provided consistent good content filtering.

Vorteile:

SafeDNS is a solid DNS based content filtering solution. The reliability and consistency is great.

Nachteile:

While there are Windows and Android applications there is no Chromebook extension. This limits our content filtering effectiveness to on the school network.

Great way to improve the internet safety at home.

4 vor 11 Monaten

Kommentare: I have been very happy with SafeDNS. It has significantly improved the network safety and it requires relatively little maintenance. I don't need to require access to every device. In addition it is very easy to manage when needed.

Vorteile:

I needed a simple and affective way to manage our home network and filter out the trash from all the good that is on the internet. I work in the IT industry and so I explored a number of options including locally installed software like Qustodio, NetNanny and many others. The issue with all of the locally installed software was the constant maintenance and performance issues. They were also too intrusive. I knew about DNS options and tried OpenDNS. This worked but it had poor management options and no ability to schedule. The ability to schedule was a huge issue for me. With SafeDNS I can schedule between School/Work vs Free time automatically. I setup SafeDNS on the router so the entire house is covered automatically. All mobile and physically connected devices. They have an app you can install but I don't use that. I use SafeDNS on a router with DD-WRT installed. You need to ensure that you have the router block or redirect port 53 requests to ensure that network clients don't bypass the SafeDNS server entries. SafeDNS is not a perfect solution but it has made our network much safer without compromising or slowing down the workstations. I initially used their web categories which were pretty good. SafeDNS staff were very responsive whenever I asked for corrections to the categories. At the moment I am exploring the use of a WhiteList only. This has been very affective in really focusing our internet usage.

Nachteile:

DNS blocking is not fool proof. At the same time it is relatively easy and economical to implement and the problem cases can be dealt with on an individual basis. Some users have figured out that they can use TOR to get around DNS blocking, I am currently exploring router updates to prevent that. Use of a VPN will also bypass overly permissive DNS blocking. That is one reason why I switched to using a whitelist. A thought for SafeDNS. Consider allowing categories to be used as a whitelist instead of a blacklist. e.g. Rather then allowing everything except that which is blocked... Instead, block everything (including the unknown/uncategorized) except those categories that are known to be good.

SafeDNS offers good protection, at a reasonable price.

4 vor 12 Monaten

Kommentare: Generally, we use this to prevent accidents. An accident might be someone opening a site that is inappropriate for the workplace, and expose the client to workplace harassment claims. It might also be one that prevents someone from going to a malware site, and infecting the network. Overall, our experience has been good.

Vorteile:

Once the software is set up, it's simple. The end-users don't have to really *do* anything. It just starts taking affect, and preventing them from accessing the sites we don't want them to access. This is true even where the users are distributed, and not on the same network.

Nachteile:

This product is not, at its heart, designed for the MSP model. It's designed for, "I'm using this to manage my network." And so, licensing is not as clear as I'd like to see it. Managing licenses, or license groups is also not as clear as I'd like. There also doesn't seem to be a very clear guide as to what command-line options are needed for a push-out deployment.

Web Security affordable

4 vor 12 Monaten

Kommentare: Im happy with it, the more I know how it works the better use I can get from it.

Vorteile:

The use of classes or type of web content and the use of white/black lists. Also the possibility to create profiles and schedules.

Nachteile:

There are various factors that affect that the software works well, so is not that simple for a non technical person to determine where the problem could be if the software is not working properly, however, the support from SafeDNS is really good and they will help you solve any issue. Also to get most out of the profiles it is necesary to install the client on a PC and also the vpn client on the phones, along with the dynamic dns client in case the router doesnt support it, so all this can complicate the installation and reduce the customer experience and satisfaction.

Review of Safedns as a filter

4 vor 11 Monaten

Kommentare: Pretty good.

Vorteile:

When coming across a domain that is not categorized by Safedns, they promptly categorize or recategorize when requested. It is easy to download.

Nachteile:

The shopping websites Gumtree and Ebay dont show pictures when Safedns is active. I have asked what to do to make it happen but in trying to follow what was instructed I couldnt make it work. I would like more help on it whch I will need to chat in writing about to try and fix.

Easy while powerful and always updated filter

5 vor 11 Monaten

Kommentare: SafeDNS is an excellent solution for Education.

Vorteile:

Our clients are schools. We differentiate profiles of teachers and students with easy using simple NAT rules in the gateway. Also, we can fine-tune the filter by adding white & black lists for all the customers, and even for a single customer, by individual profiles.

Nachteile:

No special negative thoughts, actually.

I can't think of a thing that i don't like about it.

Web filtering made simple

Vorteile:

The ease at which you can get started with SafeDNS is amazing. So simple to implement to the edge routers and just like that your internal network is covered.

Nachteile:

Deployment of the client version was tricky but a quick call to support sorted it no problem

Safe DNS save broadband significantly

4 vor 11 Monaten

Kommentare: This software came to make a real difference with teh people using Internet during working hours. We were with almost 100% of use of the Internet service and requiered a second service contrated. After SafeDNS we recover on Internet service just for visitors and the original is enough for the regular operation.

Vorteile:

This software requires just an agent and the end user is not affected in their perfomance during the deployment.

Nachteile:

The technical support is not as easy to contact abroad.

This product gives multiple options to safeguard our network. It is easy to use that where I am able to train another individual to change a configurations. My environment doesn't need crazy configurations or AD integrations. It is a great product for exactly what we need. It is also affordable for small organizations with small budgets as well.

I have not found any negatives for my environment.

Great Product

5 vor 12 Monaten

Vorteile:

SafeDNS has made it easy to block harmful, productivity limiting, and bandwidth hogging websites from our end users. No system is perfect and a few legitimate websites get blocked, but once again, SafeDNS makes it easy for me as an administrator to white list domains that our end users need to access. It is easy to set up and maintain.

Nachteile:

Sometimes the product does not show the block page, which requires additional troubleshooting by us to see if the site is down or being blocked. It would be a perfect product if the block screen appeared every time a site was being blocked.
