DNS Filtering – a simple solution to maintain staff productivity and increase your cyber security

Ensuring staff are working productively and visiting appropriate sites is one of the challenges of all managers. We can help you better control which sites your staff visit by installing DNS Filtering. It works in 2 ways.

  1. Control the sites your staff visit during working hours

With DNS Filtering, you can prevent staff from visiting certain sites using work devices. In fact, you have complete control over which sites you block, including particular:

  • Social media sites
  • Online stores or auction sites
  • Gambling sites
  • Adult content sites

Simply tell us which sites or types of sites you want to block and we’ll create a block list when installing your DNS Filtering.

Remember, you can’t add DNS Filtering to your staff’s privately owned devices. However, if you see them using their own phone or tablet, it may be a sign they are visiting sites you have blocked on work devices.

  1. Prevent staff from accessing malicious websites

One of the ways hackers can access your business systems is through websites that look legitimate but are actually malicious. These sites can come up during google searches by you or your staff as well as through links in emails or text messages.

DNS Filtering can block staff from accessing malicious websites or downloading malicious web pages. Of course, hackers are constantly creating new malicious websites so DNS Filtering can’t provide 100% security but it can certainly reduce the chances of your business systems being attacked or accessed.

Does DNS Filtering slow internet access?

In short, the answer is No. DNS Filtering automatically matches domain names with those on your block list as well as known malicious sites. It’s something that happens in the background so you and your staff won’t notice any difference in download or search speed.

Is DNS Filtering something your business should consider?

DNS Filtering is:

  • Simple and cost effective to install
  • A useful tool to maintain staff productivity levels
  • Another layer of security to protect your IT systems

On the basis of that, adding DNS Filtering across all business provided devices is definitely worth investigating. To learn more, contact Tresami Computer Engineering for an honest evaluation of your needs.
