Pros
We have been using this software for years and are very happy with the results. School and Parents are grateful for the safety this software brings to us.

RP

Ruth P.

The product is easy to use. It is installed on public computers and is very successful in keeping the children at the library safe while using a computer.

MJ

Mary Jo P.

Im happy with it, the more I know how it works the better use I can get from it.

JA

Jorge A.

Cons
End user does not know what is wrong or if something is being blocked; and yes, there is a blocked page warning configured.

SL

SHERMAN L.

Generally, we use this to prevent accidents. An accident might be someone opening a site that is inappropriate for the workplace, and expose the client to workplace harassment claims.

DS

Even the scanners have limited access to the wan, our personnel found a way to navigate to not work-related webpages.

SafeDNS is a better alternative to Cisco Umbrella

Reviewed 12 days ago

We can easily have end users maintain the content filtering if needed due to the simpler interface.

Pros

Very easy to install and integrate. The service allowed for more flexible options - such as a longer whitelist of websites - as well as less complicated than Cisco Umbrella.

Cons

The ability to disable the content filtering for maintenance or troubleshooting had been an issue, but an update corrected it.

There are lots of DNS based security products out there

Reviewed 10 months ago
Pros

Safedns does a great job of making DNS based administration quick and easy. Safedns also does a great job of allowing administrators to define a list of allowed sites and deny everything else. Some of the big players in this space surprisingly don't have this functionality.

Cons

I didn't care for the SafeDNS agent software. We tried it on a few systems and decided to apply at the network level for filtered vlans.

Constant issues

Reviewed 6 months ago
Pros

product worked perfectly for a year, now constant issues every week we have 2-3 outages and support has not stated anything other than to let them know if it happens again, am under huge pressure from division managers to fix once and for all, unfortunately, safedns still cannot find the issue so I am now shopping for other providers :(

Cons

product no longer works , support seems to not care about fixing at all

Quality DNS software at a Reasonable Price

Reviewed 8 months ago

Very satisfying - set and forget - until a user says why is this site blocked?

Pros

Great support during set up and use by our company. Very helpful when fixing those settings which I didn't read up on in the guide - had a "man" look.

Cons

Not a "known" elite brand but I feel this to be a good thing. Not expert in all things IT but expert in this field.

Secure, Safe DNS for everyone

Reviewed 6 months ago
Pros

Easy console to use, the service does work.

Cons

At times, searches are slow or look ups are slow across the network SafeDNS is securing, some frames don't return properly, if at all, on a web page. End user does not know what is wrong or if something is being blocked; and yes, there is a blocked page warning configured. Doesen't show up.
