Protect Endpoints with DNSWatchGO Client

DNSWatchGO protects against malicious clickjacking and phishing domains regardless of the connection type, protocol or port. You can protect any network or device with consistent policy enforcement and protection against malicious domains and phishing attempts.

With DNSWatchGO Client, you can extend the protection of DNSWatch when your users leave the safety of your network. Simply install the client application on computers that leave your network, then use DNSWatch in any browser to configure and apply policies. DNSWatchGO takes control of the DNS requests for each device and applies both content filtering and security policies. For more information about DNSWatchGO Client deployment, go to About DNSWatchGO Client.

To get started with DNSWatchGO Client:

Step 1 — Download and install DNSWatchGO Client on a portable device

Step 2 — Create a content filter policy

The content filter policy blocks domains based on content categories. For more information about content filter policies, go to Manage User Access to Content in DNSWatch.

Step 3 — Test DNSWatchGO Client protection

With DNSWatchGO Client installed on a portable device, such as a laptop, users cannot view domains in blocked categories or that appear in the malicious domains feed.

It is important to perform the test when the device is not connected to a DNSWatch protected network.

To protect your network, configure your local DNS server to use the DNSWatch DNS servers. For more information about how to configure your network to use DNSWatch, go to About DNSWatchGO Protected Networks.
