Host Containment

In order to better support our customers in Australia and New Zealand, we are pleased to announce the availability of a DNSWatch resolver in Sydney.

Based upon your feedback and data collected from production DNSWatch, we identified a need for a resolver to service ANZ. Neither DNS nor content latency were within our target, so we have deployed this resolver to improve performance of any network protected by DNSWatch.

No action is needed on your part. Any ANZ protected firebox will automatically use the Australian resolvers.
