 Threat Protection Like No Other

Predictive Intelligence

OpenDNS Security Graph automates protection against known and emergent threats by analyzing a cross-section of the world’s Internet activity to identify infrastructure being staged before an attack is launched.

Worldwide Coverage in Minutes

OpenDNS protects devices anywhere and stays up-to-date without admin intervention because there is no hardware to install or software to maintain.

  • Secure any on-network device–even those you don’t own—by changing one setting on any existing network egress (router, Wi-Fi access point, DNS or DHCP server) you manage.

  • Secure off-network devices—no matter where they’re located—by deploying a lightweight agent that simply points DNS to us.

Amplify Investments In Seconds

Using OpenDNS’s APIs, you can programmatically convert local threat detection from your existing systems into cloud-delivered global threat prevention.

  • Indicators of compromise (IOCs) directly detected by FireEye, Cisco, and other advanced defenses are immediately enforced on devices and sites beyond your perimeter.

  • Take immediate action on IOCs aggregated by threat intelligence platforms—ThreatConnect or custom in-house systems—to reduce the time between detection and prevention from days to seconds.
