OpenDNS offers Domain Name System (DNS) services that are faster and more reliable than any other DNS service. With OpenDNS you will more quickly reach your intended website and never experience the outages that occur with the DNS services provided by an ISP. OpenDNS also offers the easiest, most cost-efficient way to prevent access to inappropriate websites, block phishing sites, and prevent virus and malware infections.​

The easiest and fastest way to protect users 100% of the time
Umbrella Roaming protects employees when they are off the VPN by blocking malicious domain requests and IP responses as DNS queries are resolved. By enforcing security at the DNS-layer, connections are never established and files are never downloaded. Malware will not infect laptops and command & control (C2) callbacks or phishing will not exfiltrate data over any port. Plus, you gain real-time visibility of infected laptops with C2 activity.​
