New Anycast Node in Johannesburg

DNSFilter is proud to announce this week that we have created a new anycast node in Johannesburg, SA! Customers in South Africa have already been re-routed to this node and are enjoying the improved response time to our network. Because of our anycast system, any failure of this node would result in traffic being automatically and gracefully rerouted, so that customers would enjoy consistent and reliable service. DNSFilter continues to ensure that our network is custom-built to match the needs and locations of our customers.

Image-based Phishing threat scanning

DNSFilter believes in providing top-rated security for our users. This week, we’re happy to announce a new update to our AI scanner. This new release uses our artificial intelligence system in a new way, allowing us to detect threats which pretend to be well-known legitimate sites.

Deceptive sites use various tactics to avoid detection, including the use of static images, as well as obfuscating the Javascript and HTML files on a webpage. Our enhanced artificial intelligence scanner is able to see through tactics like these and identify fake sites as they are encountered. This makes it an even more powerful tool for keeping our users safer online.

Safe browsing!

Category Change: "Chat & IM" -> "Webmail & Chat"

Our Chat & Instant Messaging category has been renamed to Webmail & Chat in order to more accurately reflect how we classify content in this category. This provides as much clearer message to our customers that they can block webmail with one click. (No action is required for existing policies. We've respected your current settings.)
