DNS Firewall stops malware and ransomware

D-Zone DNS Firewall provides protection against malware and phishing attacks by blocking access to malicious websites.

CIRA combines advanced data science with decades of experience managing the DNS to provide a critical element of your defence-in-depth strategy.

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 defence-in-depth strategy that includes a DNS firewall is essential.

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