Security for the Way the World Works Today

Here at OpenDNS, we are relentless in the pursuit of one goal:
to help the world connect with confidence on
any device, anywhere, anytime.

In fact, we’re already helping 65 million people around the world do just that, including Fortune 50 companies, small businesses, schools, and hundreds of thousands of homes.

We have never been afraid to do things differently, and that includes our approach to security. The traditional collect and react model cannot keep up with today’s rapidly evolving threats and ingenious attackers. We have developed a new strategy. Utilizing our global network, which sees 2% of the world’s Internet requests, we have engineered a predictive security solution that anticipates and stops malicious activity before it threatens your network. While the rise of the roaming workforce has eroded the traditional network perimeter, Umbrella by OpenDNS has you covered. It works anywhere, across any port, protocol, or app – and because Umbrella is delivered via the cloud, it is lightning-fast and easily scalable.

Our culture fosters the pursuit of excellence – whether in customer success, technological innovation, or security research.

In order to continuously improve our products and services, we’ve
assembled a world-class team of leaders, investors, and
employees who are experts in their fields.
