DNS-Level Protection for Users on the Go
Whether working from a home office, coffee shop, or conference hotel room, the modern employee relishes the opportunity to be productive where they feel most comfortable. Today, three-quarters of global employees work remotely at least one day a week. As a result, more and more of your business is being conducted off-network, and outside of your traditional security tools. WatchGuard DNSWatchGO provides DNS-level protection and content filtering that keeps your business safe from phishing, ransomware, and other attacks even when your user is outside of the network, without requiring a VPN.
Phishing, malware, and ransomware represent some of the most serious threats to a business’s security, and your employees are more vulnerable when they are outside of your secure perimeter. The burden of keeping your organization safe as employees roam free is daunting, but DNSWatchGO makes it easy to defend your business wherever your users go. By proactively identifying DNS requests bound for malicious content, DNSWatchGO stops risky clicks from becoming major security incidents. When your user clicks a link or enters a web address in their browser, DNSWatchGO monitors and correlates the DNS traffic against our intelligence feeds, identifying and blocking connections to domains owned by the bad guys.
As users become more mobile you lose visibility into their Internet activity, creating a significant blind spot in your defenses. You may also want to restrict your users from accessing certain types of content, like social media and adult sites, for productivity reasons. DNSWatchGO gives you instant visibility and control over the web activity occurring on devices both inside and outside of your network, allowing you to enforce web content policies to keep users away from the areas of the web that could threaten your business. Easily establish policies for your users based on 130 pre-defined blocking categories, and fine-tune access by individual users or groups.
90% of attacks begin with a successful phishing email that tricks users into clicking a link or downloading a file they shouldn’t. DNSWatchGO is the first security service to provide phishing protection and education wherever your users go, allowing you to take advantage of those teachable moments when the lesson is most likely to stick. When an end user clicks on an email or link that DNSWatch has identified as a phishing attempt, they are redirected to an interactive video that educates on the warning signs of a phishing attack and gives the user an action to take, such as reporting the offending email or speaking with a member of your IT team when they encounter a threat in the future.
DNSWatchGO, as a 100% Cloud-based solution, is easy to deploy and manage, saving you time and money. There’s no hardware and no need to update software manually, while devices deploy in minutes, quickly providing visibility Into Internet activity wherever your user goes. Centrally manage DNSWatchGO policies for all of your users.
