Some of the reasons that over 1.5 million Canadians are protected by CIRA

OpenDNS users don’t automatically get the full malware protection capability, while paid tiers for OpenDNS and Cisco Umbrella quickly add-up in terms of overall cost and introduce complexity to your IT stack. For many the DNS is a simple, effective, and additive layer to existing cybersecurity investments. Here are a few good reasons Canadians have chosen CIRA over other DNS firewall providers for their malware and phishing protection and content filtering needs:

  • Faster data can optimally route on networks in Canada to improve performance

  • Private with all data kept secure and sovereign

  • Full deployment in minutes with support for static and dynamic IP addresses.

  • Comprehensive service includes many public and private threat feeds built-in
  • Affordable solution priced for Canadians
  • Unique threat intelligence from a leader in global DNS to deliver true defence in depth.

When a phishing attack occurs, using CIRA DNS Firewall we have reduced the impacted user rate by 80-90%. In addition to happy end users, that is a lot of time saved for our support team.
