DNSWatchGO is a Cloud-based service that provides domain-level protection, content filtering, and integrated security awareness training to keep your users safe when they travel outside of your secure network perimeter. When critical alerts are seen, WatchGuard’s team of security experts performs a tailored analysis of the potential threat, following up with an easy-to-understand accounting that includes detailed insights about the potential infection. When a user clicks a malicious link, DNSWatchGO automatically redirects them to a safe page and offers resources that reinforce security education.
Features & Benefits
Protection on the Go
WatchGuard DNSWatchGO provides defense and content filtering that protects users when they are outside of the network, without requiring a VPN. By monitoring outbound DNS requests and correlating this against our aggregated intelligence, DNSWatchGO stops endpoints from talking to malicious infrastructure. When a connection to a bad domain is attempted, the connection is blocked, and the malicious traffic is rerouted to DNSWatch servers for further investigation. Command and control callbacks, phishing attacks, and data exfiltration attempts are automatically blocked.
As users move outside your network you lose visibility into their Internet activity, creating a significant blind spot in your security. With DNSWatchGO customers gain consolidated visibility of all on- and off-network devices protected, including the content that is filtered and any malicious websites visited. DNSWatchGO offers detailed information on the location of the endpoint, as well as the attacker, type of attack, and attacker goals without requiring you to comb through logs.
Immediate Security Awareness
Ninety percent of attacks begin with a successful phishing email that tricks users into clicking a link or downloading a file they shouldn’t. DNSWatchGO is the first security service to provide phishing protection and education wherever your users go. When an end user clicks on an email or link that DNSWatch has identified as a phishing attempt, they are redirected to a game that educates on the warning signs of a phishing attacks and gives the user an action to take, such as reporting the offending email or speaking with a member of your IT team.
As a 100% Cloud-based solution, DNSWatchGO is easy to deploy and manage, saving you time and money. There’s no hardware, and no need to update software manually.
