About DNSWatchGO Protected Networks

DNSWatch is currently in beta with DNSWatchGO, a lightweight client for endpoint protection off network as well as network protection without a Firebox. Some features are only available in the DNSWatchGO beta. For DNSWatchGO beta documentation, log in to the WatchGuard Beta test community.

You do not need a Firebox to protect your network. Configure your network to use DNSWatch as your DNS server to block malicious sites and domains based on content . DNSWatch evaluates your DNS traffic and denies any requests to known malicious or filtered domains.

This feature is intended to be used with static on-premise networks without a Firebox as part of your overall network protection plan. For portable protection, install the DNSWatchGO Client on your portable devices. To provide DNSWatch protection with a Firebox, see Enable DNSWatch on Your Firebox.

If you plan to protect multiple networks with different content filter policies, it is easier to create the policies before you add the protected network. See DNSWatchGO Content Filter Policies for information about policies.
