OpenText provides enhanced privacy and security with release of DNS protection

OpenText is releasing an updated Webroot DNS Protection filtering service that delivers a secured internet connection, providing both privacy and security for businesses and end users.

“OpenText is thrilled to deliver the first commercial DNS filtering service that combines privacy benefits with filtering controls,” said OpenText CEO & CTO Mark J. Barrenechea. “By leveraging DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH), OpenText is raising the bar on cyber resilience strategies, allowing customers to protect their users, devices and networks from a new generation of threats.”

Webroot DNS Protection is currently the only DNS security product offering the ability to fully leverage DoH and its privacy benefits for businesses.

Specifically, the service encrypts data using HTTPS to securely convey DNS requests to Webroot resolvers, preventing eavesdropping, manipulation or exploitation of data by third parties and malicious actors.

Webroot DNS Protection has the same proven intelligence, visibility, security and control benefits as before, now with privacy included as well.

In addition to strong privacy and security protections, the service is specifically designed for ease of deployment and management, making it ideal for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and the managed service providers (MSPs) that serve them.

This offering builds upon the MSP-ready capabilities available in all Webroot offerings; including centralized deployment and management, RMM and PSA integrations, comprehensive reporting, monthly billing and more.

Further, it was architected as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution using Google Cloud around the globe to minimize latency while also providing amazing stability and reliability.
