WatchGuard: DNS level security

Phishing is one of the biggest threats facing small and medium companies today. There is a need for a solution that protects end users against these attacks, but also educates people when and where they make mistakes. WatchGuard DNS Watch detects malicious DNS requests and blocks access to these pages, redirecting the user to a secure site that informs him about phishing threats and warning signs. All this allows you to create good habits when it comes to the risk of clicking on phishing content and to appreciate the value of multi-component authentication.
