Webroot DNS Protection

The ultimate DNS connection against cyberattacks

Webroot DNS Protection is a comprehensive solution that offers protection for DNS connection against cyberattacks, provides total visibility into web usage, and enforces acceptable web usage policies to reduce security risk.

The domain name system (DNS) works like a phone book for the internet: every time a user types an address into a browser, DNS servers take that input and translate it into the unique internet protocol (IP) address that lets the browser access the desired site. But DNS protocols were never designed with security in mind and are highly vulnerable to cyberattacks, such as cache poisoning, DDoS, DNS hijacking, botnets, C&C, man-in-the-middle, and more.

Webroot DNS Protection works at the DNS layer to prevent malicious traffic and block malware before it infiltrates your networks, endpoints, and end-users. Plus, it is the first DNS filtering product on the market to combine privacy and security by handling DNS over HTTPS (DoH) requests.
