With the launch of Active Directory, we have two new sections under “Deployments”:
Sync Tools is where you’ll start your sync to Active Directory or Azure Active Directory (and in the future other directory services). Once your instance is synced to DNSFilter, you’ll be able to manage your policies and block pages by groups and users under Collections. Follow the linked documentation above to get started!
A few other updates:
We’ve added a few new capabilities to some of our more recent features.
Big updates for Data Explorer! Now you can:
With global policies, we’ve given users the ability to duplicate a global policy within a sub organization.
We’re still rolling out updates to both of these features and more, so please test them out and leave us feedback.
Global policies are here! You can now start using this preview feature today. Convert your old policies to Global Policies by selecting “Enable this policy as Global Policy”:
Or, you can simply create a new Global Policy under your MSP dashboard.
Going forward, any policy you create under the dashboard will be a Global Policy. Policies created there will be available for assignment and will display in the policy list under each MSP organization.
This is just a preview of the new Global Policies feature that we’ll be refining over time. Tell us what you think as we continue to develop this feature.
The new Data Explorer beta gives you multiple views of your DNS activity. Quickly answer questions like "Which office has the most blocked phishing attempts?" and "Which streaming media sites have become popular in the last month?"
Data Explorer allows you to see your DNS query data in any way you like. See trends in activity and uncover shadow IT applications.🔍
As the beta develops, we will add the ability to send scheduled reports to your inbox and to break down reports by devices and users. Is there something else you'd like to see? Send us a feature request.
Per-user filtering is now released live as a preview feature. You can now create access policies for each user in your organization using the Windows roaming client.
When a user signs in, we'll begin filtering them based on the policy you have set for them. This feature is great for offices where your users switch between devices, or where multiple people share one device. You can tailor exactly what users are allowed to access based on what department they works in, or their level of seniority.
We plan to release an Active Directory integration in 2020, which will synchronize AD Users and Groups. You will be able to create a policy for a group of users and have it apply automatically, like when a new hire joins the sales department.
We have released a new version of the Windows roaming client. This version resolves an issue causing network bandwidth spikes in customers with large Active Directory installations. No action is needed for this update. Your clients will perform a rolling auto-update in the next 24-48 hours.
