"Effective DNS Protection, protects employees from phishing and questionable websites."

What did you like best when using this solution?

Webroot DNS Protection is very easy to implement. It works very well with other Webroot products. We are using Webroot SecureAnywhere Endpoint Protection, and the central management is very useful. It's a good tool to stop users breaking company policies by visiting adult websites or trying to download movies or videos at work. It provides network level protection, but also custom policies. This works really well for my organization, which requires different departments to have different policies. The reporting gives me great visibility and the whitelisiting is useful too. It means that I can block social network sites for support, but allow Twitter, so they can see support issues on there, for example.

What did you dislike about using this solution?

Sometimes there can be a delay between me making a policy and then it coming into effect.

Describe your over overall experience with Webroot SecureAnywhere DNS Protection. Did you find this product solved your business needs?

My overall experience has been very positive. I've been very happy with the level of network protection Webroot has offered, meaning that I don't have to worry about phishing sites and employee behviour online. It's a good tool to keep productivity up, by stopping employees use social networks or gaems. It's also very easy for me to maintain, with one central management console for all of the Webroot services. I would definitely recommend this product as it's easy to install.
