CIRA DNS Firewall stops malware and ransomware

CIRA combines advanced data science with decades of experience managing the DNS to block access to malicious websites

Strengthen your defence-in-depth strategy

Cybersecurity is a game of layers. No one cybersecurity solution is 100% effective. Whether you have traditional endpoint or firewall protection, a DNS firewall is critical.

CIRA DNS Firewall adds a cost-effective, low-maintenance layer to your cybersecurity footprint. By monitoring and analyzing your DNS traffic, CIRA DNS Firewall can block users from accessing malicious websites, prevent phishing attacks, and even stop malware already on your network from accessing the internet. 

Protection for wherever your users are logging on

CIRA DNS Firewall Off-Network Protection extends the protection of a DNS layer of cybersecurity to laptops, phones and other devices even when users are logging on from outside your network.

The added feature of DNS Firewall uses remote clients to secure your devices for a hybrid working and learning environment.
