"To be selected as a Technology Pioneer, a company must be involved in the development of a major technology and/or innovation and have the potential for long-term impact on business and society... and its technology must be proven."
"OpenDNS won by a landslide for its ease of use and the security that comes from having it completely out of reach of the end user."
"Ulevitch wants to change the way you call up Web sites. So his company, OpenDNS, has come up with what it considers a faster, smarter, and more secure method for translating requested URLs into corresponding sites."
"About 12 million customers, ranging from Detroit Public Schools to soccer moms, use the free service OpenDNS to filter out certain Web sites, block phishing attacks, and load Web pages faster."
"PhishTank is an information clearinghouse where you can report or find data on phishers, spammers, and anybody else who's trying to rip off nice people on the Internet."
"OpenDNS also lets IT admins get a very high level of control over sites and services its users are trying to access including domain blocking, whitelisting, and content filtering."
"OpenDNS speeds up the translation (called 'name resolution') by handling the process on its own high-speed DNS servers."
Founder and CTO David Ulevitch is included among SC Magazine's picks for 2009 "Market Entrepreneurs," a selection of security company founders who've introduced significant innovations to the security market.
"For anyone whose ISP is cranky about resolving web pages, OpenDNS' free, fast, and huge distributed database of domain names can seriously speed up your web browsing session."
"OpenDNS is an interesting concept in managing DNS records. Using a large caching scheme, OpenDNS is able to make Web sites load faster on your browser. OpenDNS also is able to fix common errors when you type in a URL, and it points you to the right URL."
"It's fast, free, and secure. This DNS service offers speedier browsing (via smart caching and geographic distribution) and protection from phishing sites. The service will even correct typos that you punch into your browser."
"Setup of this free service is easy and bulletproof-from start to finish, the process took less than a minute."
"OpenDNS is incredibly easy to use, provides enhanced performance, eliminates some problems, improves control and security, and of course, it's free. Overall there are plenty of reasons to use OpenDNS, and it's easy to give it a try. Highly recommended!"
