Netsweeper DNS Solutions
What is DNS?
DNS (Domain Name System) can be described as a system that translates a domain name into an internet protocol address (IP). DNS is used every time you choose to surf the internet. Computers use IP addresses to communicate with each other. When you type a web address into a browser, the DNS translates that address into an IP address, which takes some time. Many internet service providers offer free public DNS servers, while most of them perform the translating process slowly. Services like Netsweeper DNS make this process faster.
The Netsweeper Powered DNS Filtered Technology is a scalable, reliable, and managed authoritative DNS service that is enabled in the Netsweeper 5.1 platform and beyond. The service provides low latency, high availability, and is a cost-effective way to make Netsweeper policy enforcement and services available to your users. The service translates requests for domain names like www.google.com into IP address 188.8.131.52.
• Ability to deny with a hostname
• Ability to deny with an IP
• Per URL deny rewriting
• Allows for safe search enforcement in lists:
o Deny www.google.* and www.google.*.* with forcesafesearch.google.com
Using Netsweeper’s Filtered DNS service is simple. To configure the service, all that is needed is a change in the IP addresses for DNS. This can be done by accessing the Internet settings of your router. Once the router is accessed, simply change the IP addresses for DNS.
Once this is completed, you will be granted the security and filtering provided by the DNS service.
