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.
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.
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.
