OpenDNS is a company that we here at TechSolvers love. Their service is an important layer in our clients defence against the harmful side of the internet.
Why do we love it? Its simple to use, quick to setup, doesn't make protected machines slow down & most of all helps us to reduce issues at our client sites.
How? There are many pages on the internet that would explain how OpenDNS works, but as a simple answer it blocks users from being able to access the web pages we don't want them to access. Sites that spread malware, sites that try to steal your personal details & sites that control botnets. It can also block just about any web site you want, based on what you want your users to access.
