Several of our MSP clients have been asking for a 32-bit version of the Windows agent for customers that they support. We are happy to announce that this version is available now for download! Simply navigate to the same page as the 64-bit agent and look for the italic link.
Our data science team has also been hard at work to improve the security side of our product. This week a new feature, "New Domain Greylisting" has been released into the dashboard. When you go to the Extra Settings tab of your policy, there is a new option to block new domains. Any domain registered in the last 30 days will now be blocked, allowing for a proving time before access is allowed. Many phishing and malware attempts run their course within a 30-day period, so blocking this category is a simple way to increase your network security.
We also completed the Swedish & Dutch translation of our block pages. Customers who use this locale in their browser will automatically now see information in their local language when attempting to visit a blocked page.
This week we completed a major overhaul of the DNSFilter.com homepage. The new site provides a better overview of the product to potential customers. It is now easier to see our network map, top features, and explore how DNSFilter fits your industry. We hope you'll love it!
One of our most-requested features has been the ability to get an alert when your account usage exceeds a certain threshold. This week we made it happen! Upon navigating to Organization -> Profile, you'll see a "Usage Alert Amount" field. After setting this value, you'll receive an email alert anytime your monthly bill exceeds this threshold. This feature is great for being aware of your monthly billing, as well as safeguarding against excessive queries from too many clients, or compromised devices. You'll be instantly notified so that you can take action. Read here for more information: https://docs.dnsfilter.com/docs/profile
The Policy Audit Log also received an upgrade this week. From now on, any changes you make to your Scheduled Policies will also be tracked in the Audit Log. This is great for larger organizations who have several staff members that administer policy changes.
