DNS-Level Protection for Users on the Go

2020 has led to a huge upsurge in the number of people working from home. DNSWatchGo allows you to provide DNS-level protection and content filtering to users working remotely, whether at home, a coffee shop or a conference hotel room. DNSWatchGo keeps your organisation safe from ransomware, phishing attempts and other attacks wherever you users are, and without the need for a VPN.

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.

How It Works

WatchGuard DNSWatchGO monitors outbound DNS requests, correlating them against an aggregated list of malicious sites. Requests that are determined to be malicious are blocked, redirecting the user to a safe site to reinforce their phishing training.

Protection on the Go

Your employees are more vulnerable to the serious threats represented by ransomware, malware and phishing attacks when they are working outside your secure perimeter.

DNSWatchGo makes it easier for you to defend your network whenever your users work remotely. Whenever they click on a link or enter a web address in their browser, DSNWatchGo monitors and correlates DNS traffic against Watchguard intelligence feeds, allowing it to identify and block connections to web domains owned by the bad guys.

Off-Network Visibility and Enforcement

When Users are working remotely it is a bigger challenge to enforce organisational user policies. Within the network you may restrict users from accessing social media sites and adult sites for example. DNSWatchGo gives you visibility of remote users’ activity, allowing you to enforce your online policies wherever your employees work. Access can be fine tuned by individual users or by specific groups.
