    “As soon as we turned on the malware filter, it showed us not only the internal IP address, but also the user it was coming from.” In contrast to the convoluted firewall logs, “OpenDNS helped us view our network traffic clearly–showing us the malicious traffic, and allowing us to hone in on the infected PC.”

    Deployment “was very straightforward. OpenDNS provides virtual appliances we can deploy with very little configuration – it’s a pre-packaged virtual machine. We just gave it an IP address and point all our clients there. I had it all done in just a couple of hours.” The roaming client is not only deployed on all the firm’s laptops, but has become the foundation of security for all computers in one of its facilities.
