What Does It Do? How Does it Work?
Sophos DNS Protection adds another layer of security to every network. It works to instantly block access to unsafe and unwanted domains across all ports, protocols, and applications at the earliest opportunity – from both managed and unmanaged devices.
DNS Protection perfectly complements and augments your existing network security and policy enforcement tools – from Sophos or any other vendor. DNS Protection can be deployed in a few minutes: it’s never been easier to roll out additional security to your organization.
Sophos DNS Protection is a globally accessible domain name resolution service with integrated policy controls and reporting in Sophos Central. It’s backed by SophosLabs’ real-time threat intelligence, protecting your organization from malicious domain activity and allowing you to enact policy for domain categories or domain lists.
By using Sophos DNS Protection in place of your existing public DNS resolver, you can prevent any devices on your network from accessing domains associated with security threats and other unwanted websites controlled through policy.
DNS Protection complements the protection provided by the other security features of Sophos Firewall. Deploying it on a network protected by Sophos Firewall provides an additional layer of protection that ensures all protocols and ports are protected against accessing risky or inappropriate domains.
