Great features and good pricing!

2021-02-09

Excellent - moved to SafeDNS when our previous internet filtering solution was dropped by the vendor.

Pros

Great central management of multiple accounts, with plenty of customisations for the block page etc.

Cons

It would nice to be alerted if the service has received no dns hits for xx hours - this can happen if a dns record is changed, but I forget to update SafeDNS

Effective delivery of Web Filter Security.

Affordable, Cloud-Based Web Filtering

2021-02-04

Pros

Forced Safe Search for search engines and Forced Restricted Mode for YouTube is a great feature for implementing in a school. 5.

Cons

For my application, this isn't a huge deal because I have the network set up on a static IP, but for those with a dynamic IP address, the only way to keep the filtering working 100% is to use the agent app.

Exactly what you need for the most inexpensive price.

2020-10-20

SafeDNS it's a great tool to have restrictive control on this matter.

Pros

I like the way that has the filters for a safe google search.

Cons

I would like to have more number of domain registers on the white/black option lists. I think 40 entries it's not enough.

BEST FIT FOR US

2021-02-10

I would highly recommend cost vs value use of this product to anyone! They balance features and costs for their customers.

Pros

We reviewed multiple platforms for our needs and found that the ease of implementation across our network was the major reason for choosing this product. They worked with us to ensure we captured all of our traffic.

Cons

The features and reporting are basic but it meets our needs.

Great way to improve the internet safety at home.

2021-02-17

I don't need to require access to every device.

Pros

I needed a simple and affective way to manage our home network and filter out the trash from all the good that is on the internet.

Cons

At the same time it is relatively easy and economical to implement and the problem cases can be dealt with on an individual basis.

Affordable and Effective

2021-01-26

Overall, it does what we want it to do for an affordable price.

Pros

We wanted the ability to filter internet access through all of our subnets, and SafeDNS made that easy and affordable.

Cons

We'd like to be able to set different filtering options for different subnets, and have not found that to be a simple process.

SafeDNS offers good protection, at a reasonable price.

2021-02-01

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. It might also be one that prevents someone from going to a malware site, and infecting the network. Overall, our experience has been good.

Pros

It just starts taking affect, and preventing them from accessing the sites we don't want them to access.

Cons

This product is not, at its heart, designed for the MSP model.

Great Product

2021-02-01

Pros

No system is perfect and a few legitimate websites get blocked, but once again, SafeDNS makes it easy for me as an administrator to white list domains that our end users need to access. It is easy to set up and maintain.

Cons

It would be a perfect product if the block screen appeared every time a site was being blocked.

There are lots of DNS based security products out there

2020-10-14

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.

Cons

We tried it on a few systems and decided to apply at the network level for filtered vlans.

Quality DNS software at a Reasonable Price

2020-11-29

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.

2020-12-01

Pros

We've been using SafeDNS for a few years now to protect visiting users to our guest Wi-Fi networks.

Perhaps not as granular as a regular proxy when it comes to website categories although still more than what we need.
